Beth Swaby from Distance Learning. I love my position at DL that allows me to work with students and educators from across our vast district. I have made Alaska my home, and this is my 12th year teaching with KBPSD. Although my background is in Math education, my passions continue to shift and I am working towards getting more Computer Science curriculum and classes in our district! I am also a huge proponent of eSports and all they have to offer our students 😁
PL Strategy to share:
The first PL strategy that comes to mind that I use everyday is self-paced learning. Although I'm constrained by the district to quarters and semesters, I pride myself (as does the rest of the DL crew) in making those deadlines more fluid. All my courses are asynchronous, so students can work at their own pace without fear of "losing points" for late work.
Current Driving Question:
How can we make school meaningful for all students?
