Voices from the Field with Jonathan Vander Els: Jennifer Manning

In this podcast, we are joined by Jennifer Manning, a kindergarten teacher at Memorial Elementary School. Jennifer shares her move as a teacher to distance learning, and how she has scheduled out her kindergarteners day. Ms. Manning describes the various technological tools she is using to provide instruction to her students. Jennifer also discusses how she is adapting to those parents who are in essential jobs and can’t support their children during the weekday due to their job responsibilities and are doing the work over the weekend with their children. Jen also discusses how she is using technology to support the varying needs of unique learners in her classroom, sending direct messages, videos, and lessons for specific students based upon what they need.
