The Week in Review - The Most Popular Posts

Good evening from the FreeTech4Teachers.com world headquarters in Woodstock, Maine. Spring has finally arrived here though some signs of winter still remain. I was able to ride my bike outside a few times this week. On each ride I passed ponds, like the one in the picture to the left, that still had lots of ice covering them. Fortunately, all that ice and last bits of snow will soon be gone and students here can enjoy school vacation week. Spring school vacation week started here today. If you're on vacation this week, I hope that you enjoy it to its fullest.
