Hello, Welcome to a new section of the TES Community dedicated to our American readers and visitors to the site. I hope you enjoy being a part of this vibrant community and will use the forums as your online staffroom to meet and chat with like-minded people in your industry or to use them as the ultimate go-to resource for feedback on your ideas, inspiration on dealing with an issue or specific query, a chance to get valuable peer-to-peer advice and tips or to share best practice. You can use US - Staffroom as a general topic forum and start discussions about the things that matter to you in and outside of school. US - Education news is a forum dedicated to current issues affecting education in your state or across the country. I hope you enjoy having your say and being part of the online conversation. Don't forget to introduce yourself so that other forum members can welcome you to the Community. You can find more information about how to post on the forums here.
