In this podcast, we are joined by Dr. Aimee Frechette, principal of Pine Tree Elementary School. Aimee describes how the staff began their initial conversations about moving to distance learning by identifying what they truly valued. They determined that ensuring connections and continuing relationships with all 270 of their students was the priority. In this vein, they have daily check-ins with students based upon need.
Dr. Frechette also discusses some of the questions they are keeping a close eye on, things like student accountability and attendance. Aimee also delves into the delicate balance of supporting her own children while also performing the role of a principal.
