Connect First; Teach Second
Language Arts Teacher (7th and 8th Grades), Woodrow Wilson Academy
It’s National Teacher Appreciation Week! To celebrate, we are dropping an episode every day during the week of May 4-8th. Each episode will feature an interview with a classroom (K-12) teacher about his/her experiences teaching in the COVID19 era.
Stephanie Burke-Liggett is a Middle School Language Arts Teacher at Woodrow Wilson Academy in Westminster, Colorado. She joined us to talk about migrating her classes to an online format. Her suggestion that we connect first; teach second demonstrates her approach to working with middle school students during the COVID19 era.
