I'm ready for summertime. It's been a long and challenging year. It may have been the most challenging year in my 23 years of teaching. Whether you are looking to get something for your favorite teacher or getting something for yourself, here are some great summertime gifts and gadgets. The only requirement for items to be placed on this guide is that they seem pretty cool to me 😎.

Technology and Teaching
Soundance Laptop Stand* - If you've been trying to spend more time standing up this will help. A stand like this would work perfectly on my front lab station.
