Summer is one of my favorite times as a teacher! Like most teachers I like to take a little time away from school, but, once I've rested a bit, its my favorite time to do research as well. I encourage you to take time this summer to explore labs and activities that you think may work for your classroom, but just didn't have time to examine with your busy teaching schedule. Check out our ChemEd X site, Target Inquiry, and your other favorites. Its also a fabulous time to explore with other teachers so head on over to the Chem Ed conference next month and/or set your summer schedule for 2014 with a trip to BCCE next August. This can also be a great place for you to post your ideas and receive feedback from colleagues. I look forward to what this summer brings!!
