“Last year when we went to remote learning for the last 3 months, I didn’t really feel like I was doing my craft of teaching. I felt like I was just trying to maintain, trying to get the kids to learn, but it was very difficult because I just felt like – some of these kids, I don’t know if they’re learning. And that was very frustrating for a teacher – to know that her students are not learning.
This fall I’m doing 3rd grade with one student and then I’m working with another family with two kids in public school. For them I’ll provide support plus also supply extensions, projects, and additional learning on top of what they’re getting from their regular teacher. I can get excited about working one on one with a student, teaching based on their needs. I found curriculum suited to her learning style and I’m planning lessons and projects and activities based on her interests. I think it’s going to be really fun.” - Caroline in San Francisco
