Teacher Voice: Going Back to School Safely

Teaching through a computer for more than a year was challenging. Just ask Madrona Elementary School teacher Cinthya Ayon-Ramirez. 

"Many of my students weren't showing up. At one point, I had just three or two students in my Zoom lessons. It was just very, very frustrating," Ms. Ayon-Ramirez shares. "It wasn't that [students] didn't want to be there. It was just not working."

Since returning to in-person learning, Ms. Ayon-Ramirez has seen a big change in her student's engagement. Attendance has gone through the roof, and students are excited about learning. 

See the first few days of learning taking place in Ms. Ayon-Ramirez's classroom.
