Question
Hi there,

My name is Caitlin. I am a student teacher in Portland. I'm doing a unit on weather in a couple months and was looking for guest meteorologist guest speakers. Well I can't really get to any news stations. Have you ever done a skype session with a classroom?
I'm trying to set up my unit right now, 10 lessons on weather. I haven't narrowed down the exact curriculum but if you have any tips of what I should or shouldn't teach let me know!
Thank you,
Miss G

Hi Caitlin

I don't do skype or facetime, sorry.
