Persephone & Demeter

I enjoy working with students that want to go above and beyond what is required of them. These students were originally assigned to record a podcast episode.

BTV Episode 3

Schedule a time with me to collaborate, develop, and implement Common Lit. Here is a brief video that will demonstrate the features and benefits of Common Lit.
