At approximately the same time in March, the coauthors of this communication found themselves in similar situations with the need to teach their students online. The educational crisis caused by Covid-19 required more focused attention on communication, technology, and assessment/academic integrity with students. As members of a coach/teacher team in the Science Coaches American Association of College Teachers program, immediate contact was critical. Challenging times such as the impact of Covid-19 on education required the need to adapt to an online environment for teaching. The two teachers, one who taught chemistry at the university level and an AP Chemistry teacher who taught high school, used the time to continue to work together, support each other, and brainstorm ways to maintain meaningful contact with students. The article addresses education during a crisis, the AACT coach/team program, the hybrid nature of the coach/teacher team with suggestions/questions to be considered, what contributed to the success of the team, and a comparison of student communication, use of technology, and assessment/academic integrity of the coach/teacher team.
