D79 Resource Center

Welcome to the D79 Resource Center!

At D79 we truly believe in the words of Jon Saphier -"Of all the things that are essential to good schools, nothing is more important than the individual teacher and what that person brings to classroom interactions, day to day, lesson to lesson, and minute to minute."

We hope that the resources on these pages will help you to maximize your effectiveness with our students and to ensure that every one of our students makes it to graduation prepared for the next steps of college and career.
