Spring Break

A survival guide for parents

Teachers, you’ve been waiting for this moment. The slow fade of the cold months. A week out of the classroom. A possible tropical setting complete with swim-up bar, or a staycation of laziness and semi-productive adulting. This R&R? You’ve earned it. It’s Spring Break. WOO.

In November of 2017, we set out to create a program to help innovative teachers share their story more loudly and support active leaders that are helping other educators discover what’s possible with Sphero Edu. That program was appropriately named Sphero Heroes… and not just because it has a good ring to it.
