Dear Friend of Eight,

"We at PBS are humbled by the work that teachers do."

"We love teachers. And the second thing we love is technology. Technology can enhance what educators have to offer," said PBS Interactive's Jennifer Rodriguez. The inspiring comments were made at our Oct. 2 Educator Institute, when more than 200 of Arizona's Pre K-12 teachers descended on our ASU campus studios in downtown Phoenix.

The full-day institute featured proven classroom resources from PBS KIDS, PBS Teachers and PBS Parents, and attendees were given opportunities to test the latest in technologies from mobile apps and widgets to interactive whiteboards.

We at Eight love teachers, too, and with your continued support we can ensure our Arizona educators have the resources they need.
