Recent IUSB alum and English teacher at Jackson Middle School, Alex Wizieck ‘18, knows that his students value connection and being heard.

As learning moves online, Alex describes how Google Hangouts has allowed me to genuinely be there for my scholars and continue to create the relationship that is needed to be able to teach students. We all desire connection and community.”
