EP 03 A Student Perspective

By Donna Fry

Donna Fry is superintendent the Pine Creek School Division in Manitoba. Her district is home to a unique option that, while it might seem "old school" to some, capturing the imaginations of educators around the world during this time of COVID-19 disruption. Join Donna and her "telephone school" team—Steven Williams, Tammy Kruse and Diana Mae Boychuk in this compelling series about access for ALL students.

The Telephone School (Teacher Mediated Option) team is joined by Morgan, a grade 11 student from Northern Manitoba. The TMO option has allowed Morgan and her siblings to stay in their home community, learn through the telephone and develop a powerful sense of independence and self-directed learning.
