Teaching has always been a challenge, but this year has been especially tough. As teachers navigate the new world of virtual school, they are still facing challenges like mental health that require new, adaptive solutions. To highlight how teachers are adapting to the new world of teaching, TEDxOhioStateUniversity is partnering with East Lindon Elementary to share the stories of three amazing teachers.
