Teaching in times of crisis

Personal touch: Muhamad Fazri (centre) has reached out to his students and their families since the start of the MCO.

IN a bid to curb the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, coupled with the pressing need for social distancing, many learning institutions have been conducting remote learning since the enforcement of the movement control order (MCO).

Despite the lack of familiarity with such a classroom environment, many teachers nationwide have embarked on this new challenge to deliver their lessons. Among them is Muhamad Fazri Hassan from Sandakan, Sabah.

The 27-year-old has been a special education teacher for close to three years now. A teacher at SK Gas, Sandakan, Muhamad Fazri – along with his colleagues – has actively reached out to students and their families since the start of the MCO. During the first and second phases of the MCO, they had collectively pitched in money to supply groceries to their students’ homes.
