Editor’s note: Photo editor Victoria Martinez documented a day in the life of her little sister during the pandemic.
Allison Ramos tries her best to complete her classwork at home without daily instruction from her teachers. Like other middle school students in San Antonio, Ramos began remote learning March 16 after her school closed because of the coronavirus.
“Usually, if I don’t understand a question then the teacher could help but not in this case,” Ramos said.
While she enjoys being at home, spending more time with family and playing with the family dog, she emphasized how the absence of her friends has affected her.
“I like being at home all day but sometimes it gets a little boring without my friends,” Ramos said.
Ramos said she struggles to understand the situation and misses spending time with her friends at school. She tries to stay connected with them through phone calls, texting or playing video games virtually.
“I felt sad knowing I didn’t give my friends a proper goodbye,” Ramos said.
