Switching to online learning has been challenging for everyone, but nevertheless we are going to have a great semester! There is so much we can do together, and separately.

In order to do well you need equipment. Please make sure you have access to a computer and a camera. This can be your cell phone. If you need a computer, please reach out ASAP to the school for a loaner at: https://www.citytech.cuny.edu/loaner. The school has a limited number of computers available. Email me with any questions at CShepard@citytech.cuny.edu
