Virtual Teachings Toll

It’s undeniable, the effects of virtual teaching and learning are taking more than a toll on our social lives- it’s destroying our bodies! I used to come home from a day of teaching with sore feet from standing all day. Now a day of virtual teaching leaves me with strained eyes and a migraine from too much screen time. My posture is evolving to a slumped position, more suited for bending over a computer all day. My gut seems to be growing, and I now realize how much calories I burned each day by pacing back and forth corner to corner in the classroom checking on students. If we are lucky enough to survive this pandemic, the health problems virtual teaching causes may end up being our downfall!
