September Teaching Tips from Lynn

  • As we all gear up for the beginning of the school year, I prepare for family, friends, flowers, food and lots of air mattresses to arrive at our home in anticipation for our daughter’s wedding! We are excited to host many events and out of town guests over the next several weeks. If you are my friend on my Lynn Kleiner Facebook, I’m sure you’ll see what's going on here at the Kleiner's in Southern California.

    Now, let's review that important preparation to start the year off with the foundation for a successful school year.
