I’m trying to become more familiar with using Blackboard, the online course management system that both of my college courses utilize.
I don’t know if it’s being in middle age, having MS, or varying degrees of each factor, but learning how to navigate through Blackboard doesn’t come easily to me.
I’m very thankful that I have been assigned a teaching coach for one of my courses. I’m going to meet with her after this Saturday’s class, to learn how to enter my students’ grades so far this semester.
I’m very determined to do well as an instructor, even when I find myself feeling discouraged. I’ve learned to become more comfortable with asking for help when I need it.
