Students will be enrolled in their public school as usual, and I will work with them to finish their assignments and communicate with their teachers. After they have completed their regular classwork I will work with them on enrichment activities and community building. This is not a daycare. This is face-to-face-to-face tutoring during whatever hours an in whichever location we agree upon.
One of the drawbacks of the Pandemic Pod / Microschool option is that it unequally advantages the middle and upper classes. I would LOVE to have an entirely donations based location in Minneapolis proper where I could offer my services to lower-income families. This is my tiny step towards not widening the 'achievement gap' during the pandemic.
I am a K-12 Media Specialist with 10+ years of teaching experience in Minneapolis, Osseo, Minnetonka and Hopkins. I have worked as a substitute teacher in all grades and all subjects for 5 years as well.
