  2. 2. Sharing Lessons  If you save your lesson to your Teacher Drive, it will be available to other teachers in your school.  With so many teachers creating lessons in the district, we should share lessons with everyone!  The more we share the work, the less we have to do individually 
  3. 3. The Kentwood Public Schools Ning  If you have not already, it is important that you sign up for the KPS Ning. This is where we can share lessons.  Go to 7aB6pwYokY to join.  If you need help signing up, this video will walk you through the process:
