Both students and teachers are relearning how to manage during this time of  remote schooling. Among the confusion and stress, both parties are actively making efforts to adapt to our new normal. Students have given their opinions on remote learning, but teacher voices on the topic are rarely heard.

History teacher Peter Mashinski said, “It’s a tough situation to be in… I strongly feel that our Zoom/remote schedule can be tweaked to benefit both teachers and students.”

This first full school year amidst COVID-19 can be considered nothing but trial and error when it comes to the way education is delivered. Things are constantly being shifted and altered to better the experiences of students and staff.

Mr. Mashinki said, “There is really no need to teach the same lesson twice in one day (Zoom AM/Zoom PM). If we completed the A/B schedule in the afternoon, and allowed A/B kids to get online at the same time, it would be less screen time for everyone involved.”

Teachers value their students' education and want nothing more than to teach effectively. Face-to-face teaching is optimum when it comes to learning, but in a situation like this, CV makes the best with what it has.

Stronger communication between staff, students, and teachers is key. Better understanding of all parties’ concerns and needs makes for a much better learning environment for everyone involved.
