Surviving a Teachers Salary is ALL ABOUT HISTORY for the month of February!

Ok, so I admit, history was not my favorite subject, but we can certainly learn a lot from it. AND we can make history happen today! What if you’re teaching the next president, the next great scientist, the next big movie actor of all time? We tend to think of history as something in the past, but we are creating history right now!

And to celebrate that all month long during February we will be posting reviews, giveaways, and different tidbits of history! So to kick off our month I have compiled a list of different things through history that happened during the month of February!
