Advice from the FHS 2020 Teacher of the Year, Andy Wainscott
When asked what tips he would like to share with county students regarding e-Learning, Mr. Wainscott suggested:
1. Self advocacy
2. When/if you e-mail teachers include a subject line. Also, be sure to title Google Docs before sharing, don’t leave set as “Untitled”.
3. Be aware of time management and deadlines for assignments.
4. Get a routine. Write out a schedule-especially if you are struggling with motivation and focus.
5. Study half hour-maybe an hour and take a break!
6. Show us that you are putting for the effort.
