Brindlee Mountain Elementary School principal Amanda Hollaway couldn’t simply sit idly by during the closing of her school because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

She wanted to do something to keep herself busy but, more importantly, to keep her students engaged in learning.

To that end, she’s been hosting streaming classrooms on Facebook and on her YouTube channel.

“I have a relationship with a lot of my students and this helps me build this relationship and it helps me have a little fun myself,” she said.
