Friends of Bear Paw Creek

One of the most exciting and fun things for Janet, since founding Bear Paw Creek in 2000, is the connections she is making around the world. These doors started opening up the rise of technology.  With the power of WordPress for building websites, with social media like: Facebook, YouTube,  and Instagram the ability to connect virtually has grown exponentially!  Also, with all the ways one can create videos and share their own music movement content from home.  It has all been a game changer.  Here are some people that Janet has been blessed to be connected with.  The beauty of these connections is how it can benefit so many people in diverse ways.  From lesson plans and music, these will be sure to get your creative juices flowing and inspire your home and classroom setting.  These links will take you to their site and information.
