Let’s get to know our team! Today we are introducing paraprofessional North Self! North works at the Moorhead Online Academy. 🔶 When asked what inspires them most, they said: “My students inspire me every day. I know it sounds cliché, but watching such young students work so hard to adapt and support one another throughout our ongoing pandemic has inspired me more than any other teaching opportunity has. Despite a world that continues to change and strain, my students choose to be patient and kind to one another, and I hope we're learning to be more patient and kind to ourselves as well.” Thanks for all you do, North!
