Lauren Jewett is an elementary special education teacher at a school in New Orleans. She’s been back in the classroom since Sept. 21 when younger grades began going back in NOLA Public Schools.

“I’m mostly serving students in person, but I have some virtual so I’m doing both at the same time,” Jewett said. “Everyone has to have patience and know everything will take longer.”

Crofton Mom Shares Family’s Virtual Learning Experience

CROFTON, MD — A hug. A smile. A high five. These are just three of many things students learning from home really miss. Elizabeth Fine of Crofton, a former public school teacher who gives private music lessons out of her home, delved headfirst into virtual learning when Anne Arundel County Public Schools finished the spring semester and started off the fall semester with online learning.
