Topic #1: It Seems Foreign: Stories of Teaching World Language During a Pandemic

Wayside Publishing is excited to launch Story Owl, a new platform showcasing stories about teachers who succeed despite challenges or find humor in difficult times.

Our kick-off topic seeks to honor your teaching stories reflecting this critical moment in history. The largest global health crisis of this century is changing the way we educate. From working remotely to teaching in socially-distanced classrooms, it's brought new and unique stressors and threats to our wellbeing. What's your pandemic story?
