In addition to all of the databases, books, and ebooks that you and your students can use, we also have a number of professional development and educational resources for our teachers!
Most of the databases on the Databases page have "Teacher Centers" where you can find helpful information and activities. Check them out and discover great ways to use databases with your students! Or, come see Mrs. Hartigan Miller in the Media Center to learn more about using the databases.
Also, check out the "Professional Development" section of the Media Center!
