On-line learning challenges
Imagine completing almost half of your high school experience on Zoom, and then being sent full force back to in-person for your senior year. It is the reality for Senior, Sarah Hamel.
After making the transition to online classes a year ago, students struggled with losing the social connection that came daily with being in school in person. When asked about her experience online, Hamel said it took a toll. “I’m a pretty social person so being online was really hard for me in that sense,” Hamel said. Jennifer Nguyen, a junior at Okemos High School, agreed with Hamel that the year online was anything but easy.
