    Wonderful and abundant ideas to "Upskilling our students" at all level.
    Enlightening. This was the first time I heard the term 'upskill.'
    I will definitely use the 30 circles challenge in my math classes.
    Thanks for sharing!

    awesome video!
    I really, really. enjoyed listening to this webinar because some of your share was re-skilled as well as up-skilling. This would be kept in my speed dial resource list until it becomes a habit of use in the supporting of scholarís brain development that Ms. M. Dragalin analysis spoke of and the giving of choices like Mr. M. Bergman from other Simply K12 webinars speakers shared. My colleagues would love this because it would minimize the dayís work when implemented correctly. A win- win for everyone because the standards would also be applied.

    This presentation was a powerhouse! The information was beautifully presented with enough explanation given about a topic with links to further grasp the concept. I can't believe what I gained in just 30 minutes. Thank you Deb!
