Experiencing Interruptions?

Together We Succeed: From Disruption to Recovery

In March 2020, teachers at Texas City ISD left for spring break with plans to return a week later, not realizing that in just a few days COVID-19 would shutter their classrooms for the remainder of the school year and change everything they knew about teaching.

In Together We Succeed: From Disruption to Recovery, four teachers tell how COVID impacted how they taught their students in the aftermath of the pandemic and the long-lasting impacts they're still facing.
