Shannon King, MNHHS
Shannon King, who teaches Spanish at Madisonville North Hopkins, wants to make learning fun for her students – even virtually.
“We’re already having lots of conversations with them,” King said. “They’re excited. We use YouTube to make videos and we upload it on Google Classroom. We try to pose a question right at the end so they have to watch the whole thing, then they have to respond.”
“This is my 20th year and it’s definitely different!” she said. “I’m just trying to maintain my positivity and energy, especially in the videos, so they can say, ‘Oh, that’s the Señora King I know.’ You’ve just got to keep on rolling. Just remember who you’re talking to. These are our students. They deserve to get our very best so we need to remember that, remember our audience.”
