This year has been hard for many students with so much uncertainty and so many changes happening so fast. One of the groups that have been affected the most is the seniors who are missing out on several privileges that they would get on any normal year.
Senior Lydia Engle talked about the things she was happy about still being able to do this year when school reopened for full-time in-person learning.
“I am happy that I can actually talk to my teacher in person and ask questions in real-time without other students hearing me,” Engle said.
She also touched on the things she didn’t enjoy about distance learning like not having one on one time with teachers when she needed help.
“I didn’t like that the entire class was listening to me when I had questions and nobody else was talking,” Engle said.
She said one of her favorite parts of in-person learning was being able to see everyone even though it is still restricted.
“I like that I get to see everyone,” Engle said, “but I really don’t like lunch because I don’t get to sit by the people I want to because the spots are assigned by your teacher.”
