“I have an IEP for math and science and certain requirements I just can’t really get over Zoom. One of these requirements is that I need additional attention while in class. Before the pandemic, if I was sitting in class the teacher would be right there next to me. Not all the time, but if I needed help, he would be right there saying step by step what I needed to do. Now, over Zoom, being in my math class has been kind of stressful. My new teacher just goes super fast and I’m trying to keep up on assignments, but it’s hard. I know that it would be better if I was in class because I need that extra help to make sure I stay on track.” — Anonymous-2
