We live in an extraordinarily complex world. As schools have been forced to embrace remote learning during the pandemic, teachers and students alike have found ways to adapt to the new normal. And as schools plan for the semester, many are turning to online learning because students and teachers may not be together in their school buildings.
Your actions will dictate your opportunities!
