FETC1

Great Stuff JON!!! What a SOLID QUESTION that all teachers need to answer... My initial thought is teaching empathy and service through experiences such as...SOUPER BOWL weekend...when we made 220 meat loaves for a local soup kitchen...IN SCHOOL ...we made and baked and wrapped!!!! I know technology is awesome BUT we can never loose the human connection...or can we??? Am I on the wrong page???
