I sent you a video tutorial,
the missive began…
I noticed you were struggling
With tech today
I found a work-around
the kind student continued…
I thought it would be easier
to show you,
rather than tell you
my heart gladdened…
We all need a little direction
every now and then
No matter what this pandemic
has thrown at students…
kindness and humanity
every. single. day.
I thank heaven for my students.

What a sweet story! Your student sounds like a gem! I love this stanza: “No matter what this pandemic /has thrown at students/kindness and humanity/shine through/every. single. day.” It’s so true that they’re there, if only we notice them.
What a lovely, heartwarming story! I loved hearing this from a student when my mind was already banking on “colleague.” “We all need a little direction
every now and then” says so much about the student and your relationship in which such an exchange is possible.
Tech savy students and adult chidlren have save a lot of us – me included! Thank you for reminding me that this whole thing is a community effort – even the technology!
That is awesome that your student was so thoughtful to help you in such a kind way. You must have a strong bond! We all have to work together in all of this craziness!
Wow, this tech savvy student is always welcome in my classroom. I keep telling my students that despite the challenges of pandemic schooling, they are learning some pretty amazing skills.
I am so glad you documented this act of kindness during the pandemic. This slice shows so much about that student. Sure, they get tech. But they also got into your shoes and felt your frustration and then took time to synthesize it into a solution and then took time to send it to you in a way you could comprehend. As Cindy says, these kids are learning some pretty amazing skiils.
