Nobody expected the school year to be this unpredictable, and as much as you think students are struggling, teachers are too.Their email inboxes are piling up with questions and issues, grade and schedule changes, and more from parents and students alike.
One major challenge teachers are facing with distance learning is understanding how to use Canvas, CISD’s distance learning management system, and adjust to use modern technology.

“A lot of what we will have to do will be after hours” French teacher Terri Whiteman said.
