Mackenzie Adams recently went viral because of her excellent approach to distant learning. The kindergarten teacher captured the hearts of many mothers, including television personality Chrissy Teigen.


In an adorable video she shared on TikTok, Mackenzie Adams, a teacher in Lake Stevens, Washington, can be seen interacting with her students during the remote school day. While holding up two fingers on both hands, Adams says in the clip:

"Oh! I see Brin is holding up the number 2 and 2. That will also make 4!"


Adams' playful approach to virtual learning has earned her praises online and even caught the attention of a few superstars, including Chrissy Teigen and renowned actress Elizabeth Banks.

In the comment section, one social media user said that Adams should be paid one million dollars every year. Meanwhile, Teigen retweeted the video of the teacher and wrote:

"I hate that kids are losing so much valuable social time out in the world but man, love teachers so much. Making it work."

Banks, who also retweeted the clip, hailed the 24-year-old teacher's patience. The actress, recognized for portraying the role of Effie Trinket in "The Hunger Games" film series, also expressed admiration for other teachers.

In an interview with TODAY, Adams said that the children give her the energy during the remote school day. Seeing her students' grins and chuckling makes her want to put more of a show on for them, she added.

Adams admitted that it had been a bit of an adjustment.


Adams went on to say that she makes sure her students are having a good time while learning. The teacher also shared that her school is just offering remote learning for the time being.

Since classes started on September 2, Adams admitted that it had been a bit of an adjustment. Nonetheless, she said that they are getting there and making it through.


As she has always taught in a classroom, online learning is a completely different world for her, Adams said. But she is now more or less adjusted to the situation, compared to the previous spring when schools needed to rapidly turn to distant learning. 

Meanwhile, numerous famous parents are homeschooling their children in the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Like Adams, homeschooling is likewise a major test for them. 

Actor James Van Der Beek recently told US Weekly that shuffling his children from Zoom call to Zoom call was not his and his wife Kimberly's forte. He admitted that it was not their best moments as parents.

Actress Jenny Mollen, on the other hand, told the publication that she is learning math for the first time while homeschooling her son with husband, actor Jason Biggs.
