Teach the World!

If you’ve ever said to yourself as you watch an online video lesson, “There has to be a better video on this!” now is your chance to make that happen.  The Khan Academy team is looking for teachers to share their lessons online through video.  Check out the video below and go for it!  It would be awesome to have Westside students, as well as students all over the world, learning from you!
