Here are my weekly Diigo posts for the week of June 2, 2014. Tomorrow begins my last week of school. It is an exciting time, but a little sad, as I say good bye to my first class of 8th graders. They were sixth graders my first year at Tomahawk Creek Middle School. I will miss them.
Make this week ridiculously awesome!
