Arkansas teacher Justin Minkel believes it is a teacher’s most important mission to make their students feel loved, no matter what happens. Having wrapped up the school year and spent the last two months doing distance learning, Minkel experienced the digital divide first-hand. A significant percentage of his class was unable to participate due to a lack of internet access. As he prepares for the fall, and the uncertainty that remains around when, and if, schools will reopen, he’s planning to be more intentional in his approach to distance learning.
