Teachers juggle online classes, helping their own children with virtual learning
Teachers across the Rio Grande Valley started virtual classes Monday.
Some teachers, though, are juggling two sets of students: The students they teach and their own children, who are taking classes from home.
Erika Pena, a fourth grade teacher at Victor Fields Elementary School in McAllen, welcomed students to her virtual classroom Monday.
Meanwhile, her children — one in kindergarten and one in middle school — started their own virtual classes. So did her husband, who is taking classes at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.
"I'm actually upstairs, so that way I don't have any distractions," Pena said. "And they're downstairs."
