STUDENT INTERESTS

"After students have been interviewed with a detailed interest survey I try to match their interests to educational activities which they can have fun with and learn at home or school. Hopefully this info can be developed further and applied to a personal PLN for each student.This page contains former students interests. Wiki pages One through Ten contain current student interests." -HeyMrsW
