In mere weeks, coronavirus toppled a longstanding pillar of our education system: students receiving in-person instruction from teachers. In the face of this turbulent change, teachers around the country have stepped up to help their students—and their colleagues—adapt to these constraints.

Today, Nat talks with three teacher-leaders who are forging a path for successful distance learning amid the coronavirus pandemic. Joining are Jodie Jantz, a science teacher at Goodrich Middle School in Lincoln, Nebraska; Megan Helberg, Nebraska’s 2020 Teacher of the Year and an English teacher at Burwell Junior-Senior High School in Burwell, Nebraska; and Kansas’s 2013 teacher of the year, Dyane Smokorowski, an innovation and technology lead teacher in Andover Public Schools in Andover, Kansas.
