The RisingStar31 e-Magazine for Teachers!
The late Mrs. Sammy Davis, Jr. and her partner, Pam Sherrod, began a number of creative projects to inspire kids to reach for greatness, both in their academic and personal lives.
This season, RisingStar31 Productions is pleased to continue the work they began with several exciting initiatives, including the Teachers' e-Magazine. This fall, we'll launch the first of many issues that focus on the use of motivational techniques to get kids 'fired up' about learning, especially the use of new technology in the classroom.
A special section will also be devoted to the concerns and challenges of this year's new teachers.
So, join us and together, we'll have a great school year!
