San Antonio schools struggle to find teachers and replacements as pandemic persists

For second-grade teacher Dina Toland, the workload of trying to fill the learning gaps for the 21 students in her class is becoming overwhelming.

The San Antonio Independent School District teacher often stays after school four days a week tutoring several students who are still reading at the kindergarten level or who have not mastered math concepts in second grade.

That’s after a full day of teaching his students – each of them learning at different levels after nearly a year and a half of virtual education and uneven attendance. She estimates that two-thirds of her students learn below grade level, which is more than in previous school years.
