Hi Member,
It’s about that time of year – when July 4th celebrations have passed and August is just days away – that I begin the all-consuming task of getting ready for a new school year. While there are files to go through, walls to decorate, and students to anticipate, there’s also classroom culture to consider.

And creating culture begins on the first day (if not earlier than that). We want everyone in our Tch community to have an inspired start, so our video playlist this week is designed to help you envision those early days of the new school year.
