Kerry Shorr

Kerry Shorr (Vanguard member at Independence) has gone above and beyond not only supporting her own mentee this school year but all members of the teaching staff. Our school switched to a blended learning model this school year with utilizing the Edgenuity platform plus other tools to offer a blended learning experience for our students. Our structure allows for flexible pacing and scheduling and includes new dynamics and teachers are having to adjust their teaching and best practices. Ms. Shorr has dived in and supported teachers on Edgenuity along with other technology tools that can support blended learning. She is thinking outside of the box to help teachers and even students!
