As the Writing Center shifts over to an online program, Secretary of Tutor Morale, Hailey Harris, 12, reflects on what she will miss the most about in-person tutorials. “I will definitely miss the one on one in person interaction you get with each student when you meet and have a conversation with them in the writing center,” Harris stated. “I find that personal interaction is extremely valuable as it connects you with your tutee and helps you quickly learn how to best communicate with them based off of their body language.”

Managing the current chain of events with school dismissal, Mr. Navarro, Integrated Math and AP Calculus teacher, is taking it one day at a time. “The first week was difficult reaching my students because of technical issues with Khan Academy, where I assign work to my students. I would try to reach my students that I could not see that they completed the assignment and they would not reach back.” Mr. Narravo stated. “I am feeling better now, I am finding more time to be available to my children. I am spending more time playing with them and chasing them around because they lost all their playtime with their friends from school.”
