The start of a new year is a time to rejuvenate, celebrate, and reflect. And with a new semester upon us, many teachers will use this time to seek new resources, strategies, and opportunities to enhance their practice and students’ learning. That’s why GPB Education is continuing its commitment to create and curate exceptional free content for Georgia teachers and why we’re kicking off 2020 by highlighting 366 free educational resources for 366 new days!
