It is March 13. Everyone is asked to go home. Classes are cancelled. Suddenly, the government announces that the country is going to go on a total lock down.
My reaction …
Oh my, what is going to happen to my students?
Is their learning going to stop?
All of us were caught by surprise. We were not prepared for such a situation.
Schools and tutorial centers did not know what to do.
We had to find a way to find a way to continue schooling. Learning has to continue.
We teachers care. We are concerned of about students’ well-being. We know what is going to happen. New problems will arise. Besides, we miss our students.
So what did we do?
We explored what programs we could use. Some used google classroom while others used google sites. No face to face interaction.
But the beauty is we all did something to reach out to our students.
We learned from it. Next school year, we will do better.
What did I do?
I am currently developing a website called Your Tutor Cares. Why did I think of this name? This is how I feel. I miss talking to the older students. I miss hugging the younger ones. They all are like my family. It is because of my love for them that I developed this website,
This website is for Nursery to Grade 6 students. It concentrates on Math, Reading, Language and Writing. It will be offered to the students at an affordable price. There will also be a zoom interface.
I will be launching this program soon.
