How will you continue to integrate an aspect of GK-12 and your partnership with graduate students into your teaching, philosophy, etc.?
We have created a sustainable map for our curriculum. The map allows us to use stations to conduct small group instruction and use formative assessments to guide our instruction. 

How has the GK-12 experience changed you, and how has your participation changed the GK-12 project?   
My overall understanding of the concepts is much greater.  This allows me to feel more confident creating guiding questions and small group instruction.  I also have a clearer picture of what key concepts are vital for each area of study.
