We Love Our Teachers Wednesday

"The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book"

For this week's teacher spotlight, we stopped in to chat with Ms. Nancy Alston, one of our Kindergarten teachers at Mariam Boyd. Ms. Alston has been working hard to keep her students learning and motivated during the school closure and we are so appreciative of her efforts both now and always! Here's what she had to say about distance learning:

“Remote learning has been quite a challenge for all of us. I know that our approach to teaching/learning has completely changed.

I have been working on and continue to work on becoming more tech savvy. In doing so, I have enlisted the help of more qualified colleagues. I am currently practicing video lessons/attachments.

I really miss the personal teacher/student collaboration in whole group and small group instruction. Students need that classroom interaction with their peers and instructors.In these unprecedented times, I would ask my students to be safe, and continue to practice skills daily. Practice makes perfect.”

Mariam Boyd thanks Ms. Alston for her unwavering dedication towards supplying her students with the best education possible! We are so lucky to have you! Stay tuned for more of the awesome things happening with Mariam Boyd Staff and Students!
