These two Florida teachers have really made their students enjoy school during this pandemic. Since the Coronavirus outbreak, preventive measures such as social distancing, hand-washing, and the wearing of face mask have been practiced.
It isn’t surprising to see people practicing social distance in public places these days. This year has really been different, especially for children. It feels kind of awkward to wear a special kind of uniform and as well as wearing protective plastic screens.
These children have to adapt to this new lifestyle as they need to keep learning. However, these Florida teachers have done great by having plastic dividers that are less nerve-racking installed on their students’ desks.
Patricia Dovi and Kim Martin are first-grade teachers at St. Barnabas Episcopal School in DeLand, Florida and they have turned coronavirus dividers into the windows and windshield of Jeeps.
Anything that we can do to add some silliness and some creativity to get them excited is going to be really important in the longevity of this school year,” Dovi
The two teachers paid for the decorations and the school provided the Plexiglas. According to Martin, the desks took about a week to complete. After all, it is worthful.
These desks were later turned into colorful Jeeps and they were also designed with personalized plates. Each student arrived at the school to see a ‘new jeep’ awaiting them.
It’s going to be more fun to say, ‘Hey, purple Jeep, you’re getting out of your lane. I think it will be a smart way to keep the kids engaged. We have no doubt about that.
It is quite amazing to see teachers have the interest of their students at heart, especially during this pandemic. These Florida teachers made school interesting for their students.
