Annie Tan, a special needs educator from New York City, Shashikant Ubale, a public school teacher from Maharashtra, Sanjana Soman, a Tokyo-based Montessori school teacher, and well-being consultant Kelly Hannaghan tell us how the pandemic upended their jobs, doubling up as digital literacy and COVID-19 guides for students and parents alike, juggling burnout and its impact on their mental health, and how the pandemic has exacerbated pre-existing inequalities in digital accessibility and funding.
