For Ms. Chaimainis' and Ms. Schomp's classes

Welcome

Here are some presentation tools you might want to try for your project.  Mrs. Hanson can help you use them, and help you decide which one is best for your project.  If you don't want to use any of these, she can also help you find something else or troubleshoot with you.
