8 Ways COVID Has Changed Some Teachers Forever is the headline of my latest Education Week column.
From SEL and mindfulness to asking students for advice, educators share how the pandemic has made a lasting impact on their teaching.
Here are some excerpts:
The Covid-19 pandemic hit the world hard. My first year teaching was at the height of the pandemic. I was nervous that my student would not connect with me and I would not be able to connect with them because we had to wear masks. I was also on the edge about teaching physical education through virtual learning. My first year as an educator taught me how to adapt and roll with the punches that came with the pandemic. Teaching during a pandemic was challenging but, I was still able to help my students thrive.
Now that’s a tough first year!
