How We Are Continuing To Educate and Inspire During Distance Learning

About a 5 Minute Read – Distance Education During Covid-19 During this unexpected time of distance learning due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, schools have had to pivot nearly overnight to change the way they are educating students. This has been an immense challenge for all schools – teachers, students, and families alike. At The Leelanau School, this unprecedented situation has allowed us to reflect and reconfirm the importance of why being an intentionally small, supportive community, focused on the individual student is so valuable. “The very nature of education is to help people discover the ability to do things they have never done before and such faith in the capacity of each person to rise to the challenge is the very essence of teaching.” – Rob Hansen, Head of School
