My Students

I so very happy and fortunate to work with diverse and unique students through our Distance Learning Program on a daily basis. My learners are proud of their accomplishments, but also struggle with their weaknesses.

While we have had to adapt to our changing world as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, we still work to ensure students can be successful in as many academic endeavors as possible.

Teachers are learning the best practices and methods of delivering quality instruction through the technology available, and we need to continue to develop innovative ways of engaging the home schooled students.

History has not always been afforded the respect it deserves as a core subject, but it is the understanding of our past that can make a significant impact on sculpting our future. We cannot afford to let the current situation pass without doing everything we can for these kids.

My Project

COVID-19's impact on the classroom has been epic. Our school is closed and the halls are empty. But change is a part of life and our students are trained to adapt.

Help me give my students access to new technologies in the Distance Learning classroom with fun lessons as they continue to learn from home.

I have enjoyed learning new teaching methodologies such as Google Classroom, Microsoft Teams, and Quizlet. I can see the excitement in students' faces when they hear their lesson is going to come via NearPod. And they love working together to outperform their classmates! This is how we keep our students engaged with education while at home.

I continue to search for ways to provide my students with innovative and proven methods of learning in order to reach their highest academic potentials. These resources will provide a means to that end.
