that entertains and informs you while building your capacity as an educator."

When You Need Images 
"Finding free images of high quality is a tedious task - due to copyright issues,

This inspired us to create Pixabay - a repository for stunning public domain pictures.
Your source for royalty free stock photos and copyright free vector graphics.
You can use any Pixabay image without attribution in digital and
printed form, even for commercial applications."
