High School Teacher Pokes Mother Nature in the Eye Holds Virtual Class in Traffic Jam

Hun School instructor Lynn McNulty has missed plenty of days giving classroom instruction this winter due to the extreme snowstorms. However, this past Thursday as Mrs. McNulty was on her way to teach her advanced placement class in European history, she got stuck in bumper to bumper weather-related traffic on the Pennsylvania turnpike. Rather than thrown in the towel once again and cancel class, she used her tablet to video conference her lesson. She was adamant that the weather would not force her to miss another day.

Now, it certainly helped matters that every student in the school is given a tablet during their freshman and sophomore years. The school’s investment in technology paid off and she was able to conduct the lesson as planned. She did receive technical and supervisory assistance from her class co-chair and the school technology coordinator both of whom were physically present in the classroom.

So just what was the lesson material? It dealt with the Crimean War of 1853 to 1856 and Napoleon III. As for her commute, weather conditions on the road were largely to blame for the slow pace of the traffic. She was fine. She ought to be. It isn’t always the case that a person can best Mother Nature.
