She's finishing out the year at the Scholar's Academy with a broken femur. Lynn Stowers can't make it to class, so she's teaching from home through video conferencing.
Her students say they're just glad to have her around even if it's just her picture and voice.
At first glance, it looks like a normal classroom...students, books, pens and paper. Only the teacher is plastered across an overhead projector screen.
"Surprisingly her lectures are the same. She's just in a different room. We get everything out of it, it's just not face to face," says one of her AP students, Sunny Altman.
On January 2nd, Lynn Stowers fell in the bathroom of her home, and shattered her femur.
"This is the type of injury that takes months to get to the point where you can walk again," says injured teacher, Lynn Stowers.
Since Mrs. Stowers could no longer go to her classroom, she decided to bring the classroom to her. And even though changing her style of teaching during her 43rd year was difficult. For her, and her students, it's worth it.
"Sometimes I feel like I want to get eye to eye and say now look, but you can't quite do that with the video conference. But I'm telling you, it's a wonderful substitute, so I'm delighted," says Stowers.
"She's definitely the best teacher I've ever had. I would prefer her to be here with us, but it's better than not having her here at all," says student Sarah Sterling.
"I don't think any other teacher would be coming back over a video screen with a broken femur!" says Altman.
So with the help of the internet, a microphone, and several speakers, the teacher students say is irreplaceable is able to continue doing what she loves, from the comfort, of her couch.
Stowers teaches four classes a day through video conference. She plans to be back in the classroom next fall. Feedback
