“The most positive change this year has been having the kids face to face in class instead of having part of the class attending from home. It’s made the atmosphere much more conducive to learning. I feel like my class has returned to normal, I have been able to return to games, discussions, activities, and projects. I learned a lot about Canvas during the online teaching period that has made me a stronger and more efficient teacher. I’m much better at providing organized resources and schedules online now. When I had students online, I always felt like I needed to stay near my laptop in case the online students needed something. This kept me from walking around my classroom and interacting with my in-person students. There is much more freedom to move around the classroom, monitor progress, get feedback, and get to know my students this year.
