Staff Spotlight - Cassidy Jones, Noel Hatcher, Jackie Walsh and Morgan Williams - Urbana #116 All 4 of these teachers at Dr. King Elementary school have done incredible work preparing remote learning lessons for their students. They are progressive in finding ways to engage all students using a variety of online platforms including Google Slides, Google Classroom, Peardeck, Nearpod, Kahoot, Breakout EDU, etc. They are willing to share their knowledge and model lessons with their colleagues. They have been inspirational to me! It's fun to pop into their classes and see what they are using to keep their students motivated and engaged.
