Member spotlight video: Nick Coombs

During our virtual House of Delegates on Dec. 4 and 5 we showed several spotlight videos of members who have overcome the challenges of teaching during the pandemic in unique ways.

One of those members was Nick Coombs, a fifth- and sixth-grade Spanish language teacher at Drexel Hill Middle School in the Upper Darby School District.

Nick was new to virtual teaching when the school closures began in March. But he managed to make the best of it. Just like so many of you have. Watch the video above to hear how Nick learned a new set of skills to connect with his students, and even take them to wonderful new places.
