2020 has presented us with so many different challenges, one of which being schools transitioning into either full or part time remote learning.

Schools had to scramble to come up with remote learning plans earlier this year as the Coronavirus began to spread. Now, CMS just today (12/14/20) went fully remote  again until mid January as cases are peaking once again.

Teaching is already a difficult job, but with these new ways of teaching remotely being the norm in 2020, it became even more difficult.
