My Students

Every teacher says this, but my students are the sweetest. Distance learning has been difficult for everyone, but they have exceeded all of my expectations and continually surprise me with their endurance, positivity, and loving nature. For example, on the last day of our course this semester (we're on a 3x4 schedule), one of my classes surprised me with thank you posters and a whole Padlet with heartfelt messages. As a teacher, it's so hard to know if you're doing well, and not gonna lie, they made me cry. I look forward this semester to meeting even more of these beautiful souls.

My Project

Transitioning into distance learning has drastically changed the way that we teach. In class, we rely on constant observation of our students; being able to see them all at a glance is crucial to effective teaching. To meet all my students' needs online, it is essential to have a second screen.

Using a monitor in addition to my laptop will allow me to engage my students in quality lessons while still being able to see all of their lovely faces!

I will be able to provide quicker and better quality feedback without having to constantly switch windows between the lesson and the Google Meeting.

After distance learning is over, I plan to use this monitor to improve learning in class. I will be able to set it up as a station in station rotation lessons, and it will also be helpful for showing videos in class.

Thank you all for your support during this difficult time!
