Distance learning is a term educators are using to describe how our children will be taught without being in a classroom. Distance learning while new for many parents has been a style of learning used in higher education and for professional development for some time. Use of this type of learning for children at scale is new. There are a lot of things that need to be discussed, shared and improved. As a candidate for San Leandro Unified School District Area 5 I will make sure that our distance learning addresses the needs of our children, families and communities by ensuring we go beyond basic instruction and strive to achieve even greater success. I will bring my decades of experience with technology and years of doing distance learning in the professional world.
