Sarah's Notes

Hopefully this week's newsletter finds you stuffed equally with turkey and the good spirits of family and friends. Here at Teaching Channel, we're taking a breather and re-sharing one of our most popular blogs this year. Did you know in November we released 20 new videos? Phew! I hope you'll check out a few of them over this break. Enjoy!
