  • Sharing/Copying this Resource

    Feel free to purchase just one for your department - no need for a copy for each teacher.  However:

    • Please do NOT share with the school down the road. 
    • Please do NOT take it with you to a new school.
    • Feel free to suggest the website to others - that'd be great!

    That's pretty fair I think!  Let's help each other out.  :)
