After ten years teaching in brick-and-mortar schools,
Miriam made the transition to Wisconsin Virtual Academy nearly three years
ago. Miriam loves the online program as
she says it allows students to work at their own pace, speeding up or slowing
down in courses according to their needs.
Students needing a little extra help are certainly not left behind in
Miriam's classroom. She arranges small
group math and reading sessions for her students, giving them the
individualized attention they need. She
also meets with her students and their learning coaches individually, ensuring
her students succeed.
One such student success story out of Miriam's classroom comes from a student who struggled with reading. Miriam spoke with his mother, and decided the best plan would be for him to take Mark12, the remedial reading course. In addition to this reading-intensive course, Miriam also met with the student once a week in a small reading group session. Due to Miriam's extra attention and care for her students, the student is much more confident and enjoys reading!
Even though her students are miles away, Miriam proves that the innovative tools associated with online learning allow teachers to recognize and provide solutions to the learning issues their students face.
