Nutrition Exploration

At this site you will find resources for school nutrition professionals, educators, and parents, plus fun food games for kids. There is a school milk financial calculator, lessons connecting school meals and classroom learning, and lessons to teach food groups. You can find recipes, including the results of a snack recipe contest (first place: rocket salad; second place: sweet 'n' cool fruity snack bars; third place: peanut butter chew balls).

"The Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment (BTSA) Progam is designed to support the professional development of newly-credentialed, beginning teachers. My eCoach has allowed our new teachers and their support providers a one-stop-shop for accessing the necessary tools for becoming successful teachers. Most new teachers are "tech" savvy and love being able to collaborate, communicate and have access to their BTSA materials electronically. My eCoach is the perfect fit for our program."
