6.  New Look for Educators
View of the new HPC Teachers pages

The "Teachers" section of the site is undergoing a face lift!  You may have already noticed the sleek new home page.  Subpages will follow suit during the next few months.  The goal is to make the section more adult-oriented and easy-to-use not only for teachers, but for coin clubs, scout troops, home schoolers and other educators.

Pay special attention to the main box in days to come, which will actually be four boxes in one.  Tabs along the top will let you choose from among "Classroom," "Community," "Coins" and "H.I.P. Pocket Change" displays, with links to relevant features.  In the lower right corner, "Trivia Treasures" will give you an assortment of interesting factoids about coins and the United States Mint.
