Liza’s Links to Keep You Informed
This time of the year is rough. All teachers seem to work together to make sure you have a project or a test in every class on the same day. You may think you have no time to stay informed, and while this may be true, we all know that you aren’t going to remember whatever you are studying right now after you turn in the test or project.

Obama has gotten pretty clever during his three years in office.
