Master of Arts (MA)
Through feedback from the community, largely in the form of continued interviews and conversations with teachers about what they were looking for and how they consumed news, I learned that a newsletter was the best way to reach them.
Navigating the challenges of hybrid learning has meant for teachers multiple lesson planning, which has compounded the existing challenge of being incredibly busy and potentially overwhelmed. A newsletter that could arrive in an email inbox — a place where public teachers spend much of their time — could help bring information directly and prevent teachers from having to spend more time seeking out stories and resources.
My newsletter offers solutions based, teacher oriented resources to differentiate classrooms and emphasizes work that fosters an environment of holistic student development. Through an online landing page (website) teachers can find an online community and expert vetted resources for classroom support.
