Message to Teachers

Not only are we faced with having to learn new tools to teach with, we are faced with having to teach our students how to use these tools as well. I know your plates are full and not with Thanksgiving food, but with lesson planning, grading, zoom meetings, etc.

I'm here to help!

I had the pleasure of working with Ms. Karen Winters at Brooklawn and her ELA classes this week, showing them how to navigate Gale Online Resources so they could conduct research. I am looking forward to joining them again next week to help student's access eBooks for independent reading time. Thank you so much Ms. Winters for allowing me to work with you and your students!

I am more than happy to work with you and be of assistance in any way that I can. Some of what I can offer includes:

  • Assisting you in learning a new tech tool.
  • Showing students how to navigate the LibGuide in order to access eBooks or research tools.
  • Delivering paper books to students.
  • Planning and/or teaching lessons.

So please feel free to reach out using the contact information below. I look forward to working with you!

Veterans Day is Wednesday, November 11th!

Feel free to share the following link with your students so that they may create a short video on Flipgrid thanking veterans.

I will be sharing these recordings with local veterans so please ask students not to mention their names or any other identifying information, only to respond to the prompt, I am thankful to you for...

The join code is #thankful
