After switching to online instruction due to the pandemic, I realized that I was well suited for online instruction as I thrived with this method and my students thrived as well.
I understand the importance to make sure every child's needs are met, and this is something that is easily forgotten when it comes to online teaching. As someone with a lot of experience with special needs (including in my own family,) I would like to teach virtually to help close those gaps and to help students who fall through the cracks if their needs are not being met.
I also believe that online learning needs to incorporate opportunities for hands on learning and exploring off-screen, and the teacher should create an engaging, fun environment that the students look forward to joining every day.
