NORFOLK, Va. – A Virginia teacher is getting national recognition for finding a way to ensure her students’ art got the recognition it deserves amidst the pandemic.
Detra Johnson, an art teacher in Norfolk, was featured in Monday’s issue, which highlighted “high-tech heroes.”
When school was shifted online, it created a new challenge for Johnson — there were no physical hallways or classrooms where she could display her students’ art.
Johnson decided to create a digital museum to showcase their work online as a way to make up for the lost physical space.
