Room A203 without a teacher as students lounge on their phones or do school work.

At the beginning of the school year, many of the Probability and Statistics classes did not have a teacher. A temporary solution to the problem was for classes to have a long-term substitute to watch over the class and for AP Statistics teacher, Benjamin Buch, to assign assignments.

Fast forward to the second quarter and the class not only still lacks a teacher but also assignments and instructions as Buch, the math teacher who has been giving the class asynchronous assignments, has stopped in order to focus on his own class.

Since there is no teacher and no work to do, the class has become a form of a study hall or advisory period instead of a math class for many students. Of course, this raises the question for the future of the class as students are now an entire quarter behind in terms of learning.

Students and substitutes alike have shown a bit of frustration with the fact that the absent teacher’s situation has affected the class for this long. However, there has been some news according to Buch that a new teacher, John Maes, will start teaching the class on November 20th.

While the situation can be deemed as solved, there is still a lingering concern about the academic progress made by students of the class as this large period of time without proper instruction will no doubt affect them throughout the rest of the year.

However, with the new teacher Maes, everyone can hope that the combined efforts of his work along with the students will allow them to have a thriving and successful learning environment.
