Hello teachers! Here at Scope HQ, we are always asking ourselves how we can best support you in your classroom: What problems can we help you solve? What challenges can we help you overcome? How can we help make your days more joyful?

We want to share some great ideas and timesaving tools you can use to secure funding for next year’s subscription.
