Theater teacher Rebekah Hess has spent quarantine and summer break preparing her home office for the school year. “I ended up decluttering over 2,320 items in the last three months,” Hess said. Her office contains scented candles, an open window, a ginormous planner, and a special furry friend, Gibbs.
Loudoun County Public Schools will follow virtual learning for the first semester until further notice. Quarantine gave teachers the opportunity to prepare lessons, workspaces, and schedules. This school year, some teachers spent their summer break designing and exploring interior design within their home spaces.
