Teachers 'go the extra mile' during tough circumstances

May 12, 2020 Jenn Schultze / Buffalo


The school year isn't ending the way many of us expected. Across Wyoming traditional, in-person schools have closed their doors to stop the spread of COVID-19.

This has forced teachers to change their approaches to teaching. I want to recognize their heroic efforts because they are on the front lines of ensuring no student is left behind.

As a teacher, I know first hand the adjustment it takes to get used to online teaching. Seeing how my brick-and-mortar peers are handling this transition is inspiring.

They are putting in hard work to convert their lessons into digital presentations and fostering student success along the way, all while dealing with a global health crisis that is plaguing every community.

I encourage all teachers to take a moment to be proud of the work they're doing. For those who are parents, as I am myself, they're balancing their classes while helping their kids from home.

Parents are also going the extra mile to help their kids transition to online school.

This is a difficult time for everyone but your efforts to add a sense of normalcy to students' lives is courageous.

To all readers, if there is a teacher in your life whose made an impact on you, make sure to let them know how much you appreciate them.
