Teacher Stays Connected with Students Through Skype During Cancer Treatment
We love hearing about the many innovative and heart-warming ways people are using Skype to better connect with their friends, families and colleagues. That’s why we were so inspired by the story of Kaylene Kramer, an Ohio-based teacher and mother of two.
A story originally reported by ABC 13 in Toledo detailed Kramer’s ordeal: she was diagnosed with and began treatment for breast cancer in October of last year. As a display of her incredible strength, she decided it was important to keep connected with her students every three weeks using Skype video calling during her time away from the classroom.
During her treatment process, Kramer is continuing to use Skype to keep in touch with her first-grade students, read them stories and provide them with updates on her progress.
