Over in South Dakota, 12-year-old Rylee Anderson was just not getting the algebra questions posed in her online class. Like many other students nationwide, she has been going to class online because of coronavirus closing down physical access to schools.
Rylee emailed her teacher for help because she felt a little embarrassed to ask her questions in front the the entire class. Lets face it, who wants to be the only one to admit they are not getting it?
She expected an email back. What she got was her doorbell ringing.
There was Rylee's teacher, standing on her porch on the other side of the glass door, holding a whiteboard and marker.
After 10 minutes of chatting through the glass and the teacher explaining the drawing on the board, Rylee understood the math problem.
