“Cominante no hay camino, se trace el camino al andar”

[Traveler, there is no road. The road is made as one walks]

-Antonio Machado

Making sure to teach every class with a critical lens is not always easy. Teaching the “double curriculum” can be tiring and at times difficult. However, there is strength in community.

As this section of the website grows we will add functions that will allow you to search by qualifiers such as theme, or grade level.
