Ms. Bond’s Zoom Message
Never in my teaching career would I have thought that I would need to teach elementary class via online classes. Yet, here we are in uncertain times, teaching in a media platform that is geared towards the children of this generation.
As apprehensive as I was before the first day of Zoom (I woke up a number of times during the night like it was my first day of school!), I now feel energized and excited about what we are able to do with the Zoom program. I’ve found that I’ve been able to keep most of my teaching the same as when it is a live class! In Reading, we’ve done an author study and vocabulary work in just three days! I am so proud of how much hard work my students continue to do while they are at home!
Zoom has allowed me to continue to teach them as if I were there in their home right next to them! The students are able to ask me questions and I love being able to check in with them and see how they’re doing! Even though I can’t wait for the day when my students are able to greet me in my classroom, I am excited to be able to teach them through Zoom! It certainly makes this process a lot easier when I see their smiling faces stare back at me from video boxes on my computer!
