Teacher's Strike for Education!!!

I would like to thank each and every parent for your support during the recent United Teachers of Los Angeles (UTLA) strike.  I speak for all teachers when I say that we truly appreciate your kind words and understanding of what we were trying to accomplish.  We know that it was diffcult for you during the strike to decide whether to send your child to school or keep them at home.  The good thing is that we are back and we are extremely happy to be back.  It is now time to get back to work and finish the year strong.


Kahoot! is a game that I create.  I can create a game with any subject I choose.  Then the students can either play on their own, with a team, or against another team.  It is always fun.  To begin, all you have to do is click on the image below.
