Our teachers are itching to get back to work. WE ALL miss teaching your children. We hope this blog will be a sustainable way to help you survive our time apart. This blog will be full of UPLIFTING activities and ideas to help us TAKE BACK a day-to-day schedule in what is quickly becoming our new normal.
Let’s connect through this blog. Feel free to write us with questions, ideas and suggestions. We will do our best incorporate them into this page. We need to stay together and help each other as much as possible in this age of social distancing. Hopefully, this blog will be a way for us to stay connected.
We want to end each of these blogs with something uplifting – whether it be a good news story, a personal celebration from one of you, or just a motivational quote. We will leave you with something to smile about. Promise!
