Empowering students with language-based learning differences
The Learning Continues
Distance Learning @ Siena
Visit International Dyslexia Association's YouTube and Facebook channels with Siena's Jilly Darefsky, Head of School, and Simon Kanter, Director of Technology, for a tools and technology focused webinar delivering practical strategies for employing multisensory education in an online format. A copy of the slide deck is available here.
Overall the virtual learning is going well, teachers have made a great effort to engage the kids and ensure they are learning the new concepts.
The schedule consistency is great. The class projects and curriculum seem to really interest my daughter and keep her engaged. The various opportunities to engage the kids socially (Spirit Fridays, in-person events, clubs) are a great way to round out the school experience.
Thank you for ALL of the work you are putting into the virtual school year. The Siena School has been a dependable rock for us. We are truly grateful.
Thank you all also for the success tips—we all get to learn new skills during this time and managing a house with four teleworkers will be an interesting experiment for us. Love the hints on broadband checks, prepping food in the AM, and scheduling fresh air breaks. We are amazed at the resources and complete plan Siena has in place to keep the students engaged and learning during what can be a stressful time. Maintaining this sense of normalcy is a treasure you are giving us. The Siena family is a special one, and we feel very blessed to be a part of it. Please share our thanks with all the folks who make Siena such a special place.
