When I started teaching virtually, I wondered if I’d still have the collaboration and community-building environment I had in a brick-and-mortar public school. At Coastal Connections Academy, not only have I developed incredible relationships, I’ve also learned so much from my team. Being part of a team that fosters positivity and is made up of happy teachers provides a great learning environment for students.
I try to make my LiveLesson® sessions upbeat and exciting. I always bring high energy for my students with a variety of technology that makes learning fun. I offer “Fun Fridays” where students can dance, sing, play games, chat with me, and talk to their classmates. We also take virtual field trips all around the world.
I want them to want to log in to see me and their friends.I make daily phone calls to compliment their success and also make encouragement calls.
