The virus has been difficult for all of us but, it has really taken a toll on teachers whether they are virtual or in person. Our teachers are risking their lives like never before so our students can gain the proper education.

Teachers are also taking the vaccine to add a little more protection to their health while they are interacting with the students.

Since schools in Michigan have spiked with COVID it because even more important to protect our students and our teachers since the virus has a reputation of spreading.

In an article from Fox 2 News called "Grosse Pointe teacher resigns after board implements new COVID policy; teachers call out sick in support" by Amy Lange and Fox 2 Staff stated

"Grosse Pointe North teacher Sean McCarroll resigned at Monday's school board meeting when the board voted to relax COVID protocols for in-person learning that he and other teachers say put more people at risk."

"We're not angry at the situation - we can't control COVID - we're angry at you. We're angry at you and angry is a nice way of putting it," he told the board on Monday. "You don't respect us - if you respected us you'd listen to us. You don't appreciate us - if you did you wouldn't make our jobs literally impossible to do."

The teacher had the right to protect his health and his family because if we were going to relax protocol for COVID it would only create a bigger problem in teachers' and students' homes.

What is the best way to protect both the teachers and students with the COVID rise?
