Well, don’t sneer, but YouTube is your friend, not your rival. And believe it or not, it can help you become a better teacher.

All The Best To Teachers

As a parting gift, they can read our inspirational story of a teacher who connected with her students by dancing in a bunny suit, and in turn her students saved the last dance for her.
