Tomorrow's the first day of school. This day is usually an exciting time when you wear a new outfit, meet parents for the first time and see how the children have grown over the summer. It's going to be a little different tomorrow.
We begin with distance learning exclusively in my school district and county. I didn't know what I wanted to say to my teachers to encourage them, be inspiring, and somehow take this load from their shoulders. There has been a lot of concern, perfectionism, frustration, and overload.
Then I received a group text from one of my teachers that says it better than I ever could. "Let's allow this school year to be awesome. Please don't throw away or don't throw a label or judgment on it before it begins. It may just surprise us in a big, beautiful way."
I love this quote and intention. Big and beautiful anything demands strategies and skills. Here are seven things to do that will make these first few weeks of school awesome.
