"After coronavirus sidelined in-person learning this spring, school psychologist Brittany Greiert discovered a new side to a normally reserved boy she’d worked with for years.
He was open and funny during their online chats, quick to share his ideas and fill her in on his academic accomplishments.
'I have learned a whole new way to connect with one of my students,' said Greiert, who works at Boston P-8 School in Aurora.
Now, she plans to use such tech-based strategies even when face-to-face learning resumes.
Greiert, who was recently named School Psychologist of the Year by the Colorado Society of School Psychologists, talked with Chalkbeat about her pivot to remote learning, her efforts to track down hard-to-reach students, and the advice she has for children and adults."
