Back to school time— it’s usually a time of excitement, anticipation, and maybe even a little bit of nervousness. But for the second year in a row, it is unfortunately overshadowed with uncertainty, fear, and frustration. With the ever-evolving ebbs and flows of this pandemic, our students, teachers, and administrators are gearing up for what’s sure to be another memorable school year. So how do you go into this new school year with a new mindset?
As we all know, it takes a little dirt to grow in life, and you, our nation’s PreK-12 educators, are like expert gardeners! You have adapted and overcome all of the challenges and changes over the last year and a half to provide the best student learning experience possible. And unlike the previous year’s start of school, you now have some experience under your belt with running classrooms during a time of Covid. All of the blood, sweat, and tears you’ve endured have made you stronger, more prepared to tackle the new school year.
