Ms. Erin Taylor
I hope you are all getting some deserved rest, and being helpful to your families and those around you. I miss seeing you! But I'm glad you're staying safe and healthy at home.
Whether you're in GT or not, feel free to take advantage of the resources on this site. Each week I'm aiming to post new challenges and activities that can be done from home. In addition, you'll find standing links to some good online resources for things like learning to code (which I know a lot of you are interested in), practicing a new language, or taking a virtual tour of a museum.
Remember, you area always welcome to get in touch with me at erin.tayor2d11.org and I look forward to hearing from you.
