Shadowing a third grade teacher for one day of remote learning illuminates the reality of educating students during a pandemic.
Deep understanding comes from firsthand experience and stepping out from behind our desks. That includes me, as I lead Follett School Solutions and strive to always understand our customers’ needs. Since the pandemic began, I’ve been talking to district leaders, librarians, and teachers about the challenges and opportunities they face. On a recent Illinois morning, third grade teacher Julie Scroggins invited me to shadow her as she lives what we read and hear about: the reality of a teacher’s day during remote learning in a pandemic.
