How is your life different now than it was before the pandemic?

As a teacher, we currently have a shortened schedule, we wear masks when we cannot socially distance, and we have smaller class sizes. Instruction has slowed and work is completely different. I also found love during this craziness.

If you’re a student, was school canceled? Were you able to complete your studies online? Do you think you’ll be back on campus in the fall?

I was a student in the spring. I completed my studies online and graduated with my MSEd in May 2020. We had our own graduation ceremony with masks and social distancing (bending campus rules a bit)

Did you have to postpone any major life events? (e.g. Graduation, wedding, major birthday) What did you do instead?

Yes. My mother and 4 good friends met with me in full doctoral regalia to do our own graduation ceremony, including speeches, a giant, crayon covered diploma, and a tassel change.
