Teaching and Learning During a Health Crisis

SREB asked educators to share their experiences and explain how the shift to virtual learning will influence how they move forward this fall. Three educators shared their stories with us:

  • Donna Van Metre, Director/Principal, James Rumsey Technical Institute (Martinsburg, West Virginia)
  • Laquana Cardwell, Fifth-grade teacher, Church Street Elementary School (Riverdale, Georgia)
  • Heather Pitzer, English teacher, Delaware Area Career Center, Delaware, Ohio
