Hi, my name is Nina, and I’m a senior at Gunston. Distance learning is new for most Gunston students, including me, and this experience has taught me a whole new way to go to school. Personally, I have enjoyed the new experience of distance learning and I’m taking everything one step at a time. Shoutouts to Mr. Lewis, Mrs. Grabis, and all of our teachers for their support during this crazy time. Being stuck at home is not an ideal way to finish out senior year, but I’m making the best of things and enjoying everything I can from home.
