School Outreach Coordinator Matt Jaeger is just a virtual touch away providing parents and teachers additional information that may help families and educators through the school year. School work has become just another thing parents are balancing. By tacking on part-time educator, parents are juggling so many roles in the household that patience and just a little help from the library might be a saving grace.
Teachers are instructing students using multiple teaching plans. Students either learn virtually or in-person, while others are participating in hybrid formats. This type of curriculum must be mind-blowing.
Jaeger is hoping to be part of the bridge between teachers and parents by providing a virtual place to receive resources such as books and lesson plans all in an effort to assist the riggers of multifaceted learning.
The job title of outreach coordinator dates back prior to the coronavirus pandemic. Thanks to COVID-19, the position has evolved. Before COVID-19, Jaeger coordinated outreach programs by going out to schools, book clubs and other services.
During the pandemic, interactions are less in-person and more of a digital nature. By introducing students to online books, music and videos, there’s a whole world to explore. Providing an ease of learning with a few small gestures can be meaningful to many that are struggling with resources during this unprecedented time.
The McCracken County Library is open to walk in traffic. This is just another service provided by the library and one in which parents, teachers, and students can all appreciate.
