Schools Opening Too Fast

Bethany Silverton-Green, Grade 7 Teacher

As we watch our students cram into crowded hallways and mix in and out of the classroom, I can’t help but wonder what might happen if any one of them is positive for COVID-19.

As teachers we have not been trained on proper social distancing, and we seem to be making things up as we go. In my 40 years in education, I have never before feared having to go into my classroom like I am today.
