I participated in the November edition of #PassTheScopeEdu and this month's topic was #RestUpTeachUp. In this segment, I talk about the need for sleep and resting and recharging as an educator and how that can't be overlooked.
Whiteboard.chat is an awesome and free virtual, web-based whiteboard. I think it's better than Google Jamboard!
Earlier in November, I had the opportunity to provide some afterschool PD to teachers in my district and I created a session about strategies to engage students in virtual learning. Some of the strategies include:
Liz Sheridan - Proud Rutgers graduate who initially hoped to get into publishing but then considered a career in education. She teaches English at my school and she's a phenomenal educator who is respected by her students and her colleagues. She loves literature and being around reading and she figured that teaching would be a way to help other people access that love, whether they already liked reading or not. Liz is a former teacher of the year and is regularly nominated in our building.
Most recently, she received the 2020 Yale Educator Award along with 6 other teachers and 24 counselors who were recognized as outstanding educators from around the world who have supported and inspired their students to achieve at high levels.
