Mrs. Baus - DD2 Middle School Virtual Academy Teacher of the Month
Susan Baus has gone above and beyond assisting and supporting fellow VA teachers with eLearning platforms and technology, beginning with Microsoft Teams and GoGuardian. She has held impromptu learning sessions and tutorials in her classroom with colleagues, and practiced strategies and applications with her own child before the start of school in order to trouble-shoot issues. Susan even led an initiative to hold two two-hour long tutorial sessions on a Saturday and Sunday before the start of school where she invited teachers to attend to set-up their classrooms, invite students to class, and address issues and concerns. This was her own idea she shared with administrators; she was not asked to do this but volunteered her own time. Many of our GMS faculty and long-term substitutes attended these sessions and felt reassured and supported by Susan's help. Susan also serves on the GMS Technology Committee where she led teacher trainings to assist in setting up gradebooks in PowerSchool. Susan has been a great help to the GMS VA faculty, and through her leadership, she has reduced stress and built confidence among our teachers.
CONGRATULATIONS to Mrs. Baus for being the DD2 Middle School Virtual Academy Teacher of the Month!
