Yes!!! I am so energized after reading student work submitted through @Schoology on day 1 (or 2 for some). Such a joy to finally read student work! THIS is why I teach. All these voices. Our future. #cpsbest— Ms.Thelen (@thelensthinkers) September 9, 2020

Take it from this student, parents work very hard and are sacrificing... chores prepare us for the future! She is right, parents are working SO HARD and are SACRIFICING so much right now.

We did it! We completed week one of virtual learning. We may have had some bumps in the road and some learning curves with the technology, but this class rocked it!!!
In a short amount of time, students have worked to navigate between apps on an iPad. They have learned to use a learning management system, Schoology, AND students submitted assignments!
Students showed up for every Zoom and they gave it their all. Our future looks bright and this WILL be a wonderful year!
