    • Thank you so much for visiting, Victoria. I just checked your blog but didn’t see the SM follows anywhere. Maybe I missed them!


      • I’m surprised you don’t have enough on your teacher blog. I enjoy your informative articles and wish I was still in the classroom to implement the ideas. I share them as often as I can.
        You don’t often have comments turned on. I wonder would that make a difference.

        • I used to have comments on and never got any! So I decided it was better not to allow comments then to have none. I’d also like to delete the number of shares but I think that takes some programming.
