Happy teachers, dancing feet

Faculty at St. Agatha and St. Coleman schools prepare musical welcome for their students

MIAMI | Seems parents aren't the only ones happy about the return of in-person school.

Joy was breaking out all over at St. Agatha School in Miami and St. Coleman School in Pompano Beach, to the point that teachers at both schools were literally dancing in the hallways. Take a look at the videos they created to welcome the children back to their campuses.

Also at St. Coleman, before and after pictures show how Kindergarten teacher Cindy Barry's classroom was transformed on the first day of the phased return to in-person school, Sept. 23, 2020.

The caption reads: "Miss Barry told her Kindergarten class she was sad that they were not at school. A student suggested that maybe if she put stuffed animals in their seats it would make her happy. It's not the same, but the kids loved seeing them on Zoom and THAT made Miss Barry happy."
