COVID lockdown rules offer teacher valuable lessons in life, career.
During the early days of the pandemic, Cayci Weaver was able to hold on to her teaching job. Educating high school students, however, was not easy; the switch to remote learning was a challenge, she says.
"I think we were working 12-hour days for about a week, just trying to get everything set up," she said, adding: "You know, you gotta do what you gotta do to make sure you're not failing the students."
But she says after those initial struggles, students adapted, and so did she.
Weaver said she didn't always want to be a teacher. Even into her college years, she says she was still unsure of what career path to take.
