Full and Part-Time Remote Learning at UVAC

Full and Part-Time Remote Learning at UVAC

Have your child learn remotely while you go to work!

We understand that during this difficult time you want to keep your child healthy, happy, learning and safe. While at the same time you need to work!  Remote Learning at UVAC is an opportunity for parents to remain at work while their child (in grades 3-5) learns remotely in a safe and stimulating small group setting where all the best COVID-19 protocols will be in place.

Students are assigned to a socially distanced desk area protected by a shield, where they will be assisted by our qualified and experienced staff throughout the day. We will provide guidance and answer questions as they arise, so your student will not have to wait for their teacher to be online or email them back. To get them moving, there are indoor and outdoor physical activities, weekly free swimming, and twice-weekly swim lessons. Free time will be filled with fun projects and crafts designed to foster learning in science, technology, engineering, art, and math!

Students in grade 3-5 will enjoy swim lessons, exercise and socializing in a small group!

  • Monday-Friday @ 7:45am – 3:50pm ongoing enrollment until 6/15/21

Jazmine Gittens-Roberts (photo to come)

As a native New Yorker, Jazmine has traded in the big city for a chance to grow her family and career. Originally from Queens, New York, Jazmine relocated to the Upper Valley earlier this year. She attended the University at Albany, SUNY earning her Bachelor of Arts in Communications and a short year later earned her Masters of Arts in Intercultural & Interpersonal Communications. Jazmine prides herself with the experience she gained working with children, starting off as an Activity Specialist teaching Dance to elementary and middle school aged children. Jazmine was promoted within her organization to Program Coordinator after her first year as an Activity Specialist, transitioning her focus from teaching dance to building her former center’s program on an academic level. Jazmine enjoys providing assistance that she knows will help children grow academically and encourages them to ask questions. Social Studies and English are Jazmine’s favorite subjects to teach and help kids with.

Jazmine still has a passion for dance, and has interests in photography, writing, and graphic design. She desires to take her experience with the Remote Learning Program to grow within the field of education and youth development. When Jazmine is not at the UVAC she is spending time with her family or cooking. Her favorite quote is from Toni Morrison, “If there is a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, you must be the one to write it.” Her favorite thing to remind all of her students is that there is no such thing as “can’t”. jgittens-roberts@uvacswim.org
