    For some reason, it was very difficult to write an answer into the polleverywhere site in order to respond to this question. I was all set, ready to answer and I just couldn’t get it to work. I had done it for the 2nd question but not sure what happened. Any problems with the site yesterday? Any ideas? I’m really bummed out knowing that I was all set and couldn’t get the answer to you.

  2. Thank you for your comment. I am so sorry that you were unable to access the site. The website did experience technical difficulties yesterday and many teachers were unable to enter the contest. I am awaiting a response from the site as to specific reasons, so we do not experience this issue again.
