Technology Engineering - Distance Learning
April 1, 2020
Note from Mr. Shepherd
Well, we have had a crazy last couple of weeks! I want you to know I really miss you. I just want mention to you a few things about the rest of our school year. I want you to know, I feel real bad about not ending the school year with the projects and activities we had planned. It is like we are still on a long weekend break. I hope everything is going good for you and maybe you have found some fun things to do with your family that you seldom had time for before.
For my class, I’m giving some links for to enjoy and keep you thinking about technology innovations around us. I hope you can continue to focus on your awesome future. If you have questions about things I’ve posted or just want to keep in touch, I will be available every Wednesday at 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. on Zoom. You can also contact me by email, if you need anything. firstname.lastname@example.org
My lesson plans are for your educational enrichment. Nothing has to be turned in to me and no response is needed unless you want to.
Again, please contact me at anytime with questions. Thank you for your patience, and understanding during this time.
