When my husband, a College/Career Teacher, had to fill in for a sick staff member and needed ideas, I sent him to Kidology. He was very impressed and really bragged on the wealth of resources. When I need ideas, products, encouragement, or help with a CM problem, Kidology is the place I go. You are great!
