Teachers who began teaching on Zoom are now on campus for their first in-person school year. No more being the only one with the camera on while the rest of the students have theirs off. 

“It was weird being a teacher and not having a classroom,” said math teacher Sue Oh. “But it was a learning experience for the teachers, for the students, and myself.

“Now we’re in person. I love finally having people in my room instead of just blank screens on zoom.” 

Online learning is different for everyone. But now teachers are back in the classroom getting to see their students again.

“The first word that comes to mind is refreshing,” said history teacher Ethan Krizman. “It’s nice to be with students again. Despite that, you know the protocols and wearing masks, getting tested and all that stuff, I can see development in their work like the assignments I’m getting turned in this year versus last year.”

“What was hard was having no interaction, so I would prefer having to plan and grade more while interacting with the kids than not.”
