Neville High School History teacher Katherine Sandifer is taking a note from her son's gaming practices to virtually meet with her students.

"[The] best part of it, [it's] great to answer questions and review content, but the biggest thing to me has been those emotional connections," she said.

On Monday, Sandifer navigated the digital realm as she taught her students about World War II.

"Even though we can not be there, they are still reading their WWII books," she said.

For the students, they said it hasn't been easy with the stress of the pandemic, but Sandifer said she's doing her best to help them overcome the tough transition.

"I have nothing to reference this with. I have never seen anything like this, so trying to keep some things normal," she said.
