Looking forward to hearing from you all.

Hey Krista, have you been successful at finding ideas over the last year?
I’d be very interested in adopting this structure for teaching at the high school level (though until my youngest goes to kindergarten, I’ll mainly be limited to the odd substitute teaching gig rather than setting up a classroom from scratch).
