Inclusivity and accessibility
Tips for a successful school year
Ask questions during class, and write them out first, so you don't forget.
Organize documents ahead of time and make them easily accessible to share in class.
Be prepared to take notes throughout class. Have everything you need ready ahead of time.
Instead of sharing your entire screen, share the application only, so no one sees anything else.
Use ear buds to maintain privacy and not disturb those around you.
Don't be the one with distracting background noise. Mute yourself!
If you've got a lot going on in your background, blur it or try a virtual background.
When you're on video, be expressive. After all, everyone can see you.
If you miss class, ask your teacher for the recording to catch up.

Quality education is paramount, so I do everything necessary to
ensure operations run smoothly in the background. I need
resources to help streamline processes.

I run the technologies that make teaching and participating in
hybrid classrooms possible. I also manage technical problems, so
I can't spend hours reading unhelpful articles.
