Week 2 Teacher Reflection from Mrs. Kennebeck:
“My teacher reflection is it is really really hard to be a special education teacher via telephone or email. But not giving up and hoping our students aren't giving up either...sending emails all day with simpler, easier to read directions and calling kids to check on them to see if they need help. Watching all classroom videos and lesson plans that I have access to so I can take notes and help a student better understand the content. Emailing teachers to work with them on goals. Sometimes that is an all day endeavor.....Keeping the lines of communication open is a must in our situation. We will endure!!”view image
Week 2 Reflection from Mrs. Tipton:
“Classroom presentations for enrollment are easier than digital presentations. Recording my voice on slides is no fun, but it works! I would much rather see student faces instead of talk to a screen! As I was wrapping up today, however, I was reminded about the Grit to Great assembly we had a few weeks before school was dismissed. Wow...we have so many students that are showing ‘grit’ right now. When this is over, I know they will be able to say, ‘It was hard, but I didn’t give up!’ I’m so proud to be part of CHS!” #hornetsr2 #grittogreat #yesyoucanview image
Week 2 Teacher Reflections from Mrs. Keller:
"1. Coffee tastes so much better at work. All along it must've been the friends-- not the coffee.
2. As soon as I saw my students' faces on Zoom, I had so much less worry. It was sooo good to see them.
3. After my first 3 Zoom meetings, I received the Inter-office memo on Zoom Etiquette. Oops! It's so hard to contain excitement when seeing students and colleagues!
4. Our district sure was on the ball with this online Distance Learning business. Other districts near and far are still dilly-dallying wondering what to do. Thank you, Mr. Nagel and Dr. Watkins and tech people.
5. Pets are living their best life right now!" #hornetsr2
Week 2 Teacher Reflection from Mrs. Forbes:
“I am so thankful for technology because it has allowed me to connect with my students even though we aren’t at school. I’ve been conferencing with kids about their rough drafts this week, so Zoom and the screen sharing option has saved my life. Even though we can’t be in the same room, this is definitely the next best thing!” #hornetsr2view image
