    I'm a 5th-grade teacher whole loves connecting my class to the world. I'm just trying to provide a global context for my students' learning experience. I started connecting my class using Skype 10 years ago with working artists when my art time was cut.

    The Fake News Challenge is my new passion. Check out the lesson posted in the Microsoft Education Site. You can also help by having your class submit articles for my class to fact check at factchecking.us or see my TEDx talk from Bratislava on working to develop truth seekers in our students.
