No one will ever understand the stress and worry and tears that were shed as they worked to help reach those students. It was them that did the hard work… It was them that struggled and wrestled through all of the difficulties of distance learning and finding the students and their parents when work was not coming in and them that found ways to reach out to the kids. No one will ever understand what they went through and no one should ever try to say it any other way. Thank you, classroom teachers. Thank you. • of the Class of 2020!
