    Since stay-at-home orders began, we have seen many advertisements saying that we are “all in this together.” I have personally seen this in several different languages, and it made me realize there have actually been a few attempts to bring all together linguistically.

    Posted on May 11, 2020 by Rob Glass in Blog, Teacher's Corner.

         One of the most challenging aspects of remote learning that I have come across is how to be engaging in a digital setting.

    Posted on April 20, 2020 by Rob Glass in Blog, Teacher's Corner.

         I have entered my 3rd week of remote and distance learning, and in many ways, while it has been frustrating, I miss my students, and it is not an ideal teaching platform, in many ways I have been grateful for the opportunities it has afforded. I am naturally an antsy person, and feel […]
