Jonte Lee, a physics and chemistry teacher from Washington, D.C., spent the spring teaching students through social media. The platform enabled him to connect with students from San Francisco to Maine, in addition to the group on his actual roster. And it fulfilled a longtime goal of his, to be a teacher of the community, beyond the four walls of his classroom. Now he’s partnering with Education Week to continue those lessons.

Jaclyn Borowski is the visuals editor for Education Week leading video and photo initiatives.
