Hello Teachers!As of now, this page will have for you any information or important dates for meetings, trainings, conferences, or anything else related to GATE. Eventually, I am hoping this page will be a spot for me to share with you great lesson plans, projects, and programs I see as I visit all the PSUSD District GATE classes. To that end, if you ever have anything that is working really well for you that you would like me to share with other teachers, feel free to email me at email@example.com or you can use the contact form on the Home Page. Thanks! Erik
