The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how we live, work, and learn. This is the first of an occasional series that will look at our new normal in the COVID-19 era.
BLENHEIM — Blenheim Middle School of Discovery teacher Keydareon Graham went into uncharted territory this summer with several other teachers.
The group taught students during the Summer Learning Academy for Marlboro County School District for students grades K-8.
Each morning for three weeks, Graham arrived at his classroom, got his laptop ready to log into Google Meet to greet his students.
Graham was in the classroom but his students were in their homes.
A seventh grade math teacher at BMSD, he has been teaching for three and a half years.
“This is uncharted territory,” Graham said. “I was very nervous to do any kind of learning on a digital platform.”
