Most teachers have turned to Zoom during the pandemic to allow school to continue via "remote learning." But for most educators, students, and their parents, it hasn't been the smoothest transition. Remote learning has proved to be a learning experience for everyone—teachers, students, and their families—in ways that far exceed what anyone could have imagined or expected. Turns out, setting up live video streams into students' homes has resulted in more than a few accidental overshares, and even some outright disasters.

I taught first grade remotely all year at a high poverty school. Thankfully I'm going back in person in this fall. However it was very enlightening seeing each kids home life and all the obstacles they deal with on a daily basis and then seeing their awesome resilience. I've had dads walking around without their shirt, which is just funny, imo. It's insane the amount of terrible language parents use when kids turn their mics on. Like, really disturbing stuff. Had to call home on that one.
