Teaching Kids Virtually "Kindergarten was tough!"

"We really missed that part, contacting and the connection with our kids," says John Rendon. “We didn’t have the time to say goodbye …. give them the final hug" adds Sandra Vargas. This couple has been working on language immersion programs for more than a decade. They invited us into their home, near Atlanta, GA., via zoom. We shared a conversation and discussed things like their early struggles of transitioning to remote teaching, many of the details and adjustments they had to go through. They described some differences between working with primary students and preschoolers, some of the main applications that enable them to do their jobs, the reasonable need for flexibility in assessment, and the great support received from their school district, parents, and other educators within their school community.
