Teacher Photo Story: How are Teachers Dealing with Remote Learning?

The remote learning situation caused by the coronavirus that shut down Passaic Preparatory Academy classrooms since March 13 has been inconvenient, and just plain difficult, for students. But it has also had serious effects on Prep teachers, who have been forced to come up with new ways to teach — without being able to see their students in person.

The Boulevard hoped to find the silver lining in these dark clouds. So we asked teachers, “What is your favorite part of working from home?” And “How has this new teaching experience challenged you?” So check out your teachers’ PHOTOS, below, and their answers!

Favorite part of working from home: Fielding questions from the students. I miss them and it gives me a chance to speak to them. How has this new teaching experience challenged you? Not having face time with the students. Anything else? Wishing my best to all the students and their families. I miss you all and can't wait for things to get back to normal. Everyone stay safe....
