Iris Jensen on Distance Learning During the Friday Morning Show

Sep 26, 2020

This week on the Friday Morning Show Iris Jensen joins John and Heidi to talk about distance learning.  Iris is a fourteen-year-old student at TrekNorth Junior & Senoir High School in Bemidji. She shares with us what it is like being a full time distance learner during the pandemic.  She walks us through her daily schedule, describes what her Zoom meetings are like and how her and her brother Augie share their workspace in their home.  Iris thanks and praises all the teachers for their hard work and tells us what Ruth Bader Ginsberg means to her.

Each weekday morning now we're adding an hour to our Morning Show - opening up our phone lines and reading stories submitted by listeners about life now with the new norm. 

None of us have experienced this before, but if we keep connected - through radio or online media or calling/texting/facetiming friends and neighbors, it'll be a little easier.  What are you doing to stay sane?  Job loss?  Tell us your stories. 

Let's Visit is Northern Community Radio's way of sharing communities and places in our broadcast region with listeners.  This past month, Let's Visit focused on Remer, MN.    The Remer School District serves children from Outing, Boy River, Longville, and Federal Dam. Nearly half the students at Northland Community Schools are Ojibwe.  Ojibwe culture has become part of the daily and extra-curricular offerings in the district.  In this Let's Visit, Indian Education Director Leah Monroe discusses the positive impact those opportunities are having on students and the community at large.
