Triad teachers are struggling to balance remote learning, lesson plans and taking care of their own children.
“I’m very sorry to my students and my parents this year but in reality, I’m not the best teacher for this situation,” said Erica Bean, after resigning from her teaching position with Guilford County Schools.
Bean has taught sixth grade science, social studies and language arts at Western Guilford for almost 20 years.
“You just try your best to make it interactive and have fun with them,” Bean said.
Bean, like many teachers in the Triad, is juggling online students, technology glitches, and helping her own children.
“It’s just a lot. It’s very time consuming,” Bean said.
