Kaley Clark is a teacher at Sioux Mountain School, and she's finding this year to be totally different -- but rewarding -- experience.
"I, obviously, was teaching hockey academy in the elementary school, and since that wasn't happening this year, I guess the cushion to the blow was that I got to go and virtual teach, which was a little nerve-wracking at first. I've had the call to go back to Sioux Mountain a couple of times, and I've turned it down, because I want to see it through to the end of the year," she said, during her report to trustees last week.
After listening to the virtual presentation, trustees thanked their teachers, as they continue to adapt to changing circumstances. Last week, the Ministry of Education decided to delay March Break by a month to mid-April, in order to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Education assistant Tia Hoey has also been teaching virtually this year for the Keewatin-Patricia District School Board, and she sees some opportunities.
"For some of the students, just even chatting in the Google Meet chat is a huge breakthrough for some people, who are really anxious. So, it's been really nice to see that kind of a thing," she told trustees.
