o What advice do you have for kids struggling in school?
Ask for help when you need it! Your teachers want to hear your questions and make sure you understand. I know it may be intimidating to ask questions or you aren’t even sure what you should be asking, just let them know you are struggling. Especially during virtual learning, it is hard for teachers to always recognize when students are not understanding the material. Letting them know you’re struggling helps them to adjust and help in the best way possible.
