📚 Lesson Plan #36

Flying Cars, Moon Trains and Positive News About Our Planet

Happy Tuesday!

We hope our American educators had a fabulous and refreshing long Memorial Day weekend. Speaking of fabulous, this week we want to share with you the extraordinary good deeds of one of our very own Goodable educators. Ashley Snider is a high school English teacher at Davie County High School in North Carolina. This past semester, her senior students wrote letters back and forth to other seniors – as in, senior citizens.

Next week’s newsletter will be our last for the school year. But you still have time to earn some incredible rewards. Every time you invite another educator, you’re a step closer to winning some seriously awesome swag, plus, you’re sharing hope, resilience and kindness with another classroom - and what could be more rewarding than that? 👇🏽
