  1. Hi Kimberly! Thanks for the post, it's very rewarding to see educators sharing the enthusiasm for Nearpod!

    (Please note that this "FIRST and LAST slide MUST be nearpod informational slides." does not need to be like that anymore :) Now you can rearrange slides and interactive features in any way you like!)

    Keep on enjoying! Please join our community at community.nearpod.com . . . regards!
