Teaching with Teams is optional for Elementary Teachers (3rd-5th). Elementary educators will mostly be using Teams to communicate and collaborate with their colleagues. Interaction with students can happen using SeeSaw. Training resources are available on the EISD Teacher Virtual Learning Website.


If you are a SeeSaw user and are comfortable, you may start working in your virtual classroom.
