With the coronavirus forcing schools across Kentucky, and the nation, to shut down, educators are being pushed into new territory.
A husband and wife, both teachers in Owensboro Public Schools, are expanding the boundaries of the classroom to keep students engaged while they’re learning at home. Sarah and Joshua Sullivan are among thousands of teachers across the U.S. who are creating the new reality for education in this unusual time.
When it became clear that Owensboro Public Schools would close down to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, sixth grade social studies teacher Joshua Sullivan said educators leaped into action.
“The school district actually set up Google Classroom to have special NTI classes,” said Sullivan, who teaches at Owensboro Middle School.
