Do you feel that teaching takes up all your time, and pest management is the last thing you want to have on your to-do-list?  Think again.  Teacher involvement in a school IPM program is important because teachers have first-hand information about student sensitivities and tendencies. They have a direct relationship with students and can influence their behavior greatly.  Everything a teacher learns about school IPM will help them and their students to manage pests in their own homes.  This module, conveniently divided into two learning lessons, is specifically prepared to welcome school teachers and get them interested and involved in school IPM.
