Education and Covid-19

Covid-19 has brought many changes to my life this past year; I have done online teaching with my toddler class, been a substitute, and an in-person teacher for toddlers. Teaching zoom toddler class is almost like a comedy routine; I can’t count the number of times I have been carried around on a computer by a toddler. I have had to move due to changes in income, and it’s been an emotional year to say the least. Earning my degree online from the start has helped me during the pandemic, while many students have faced a big transition from in person learning to virtual, my school routine hasn’t changed that much. I have honestly been impressed with how many teachers have handled the changes, virtual learning is so different from in person. I work at a small private school, where we have had other challenges such as reduced student body population, teachers’ retirement, and reduced staff, putting a strain on our school. All of these changes seem inconsequential when compared to those who have lost a loved one, and my heart goes out to them.

  1. I can only imagine the challenges you have encountered teaching toddlers via zoom. This technology can be difficult for adults to sometimes handle let alone to keep the attention of toddlers during your lessons. I am sorry to hear that you had to move due to the pandemic, hopefully it will get better soon.
