To all of our friends – teachers and students alike, we are thinking of you today as you launch this new school year. We know this year is unlike any other. We can’t promise it will be easy, but we do promise to support you as best as we can in the days, weeks and months ahead.
Present over Perfect
As you get slide decks ready, learn new digital tools, and get used to teaching in a mask we want to gently remind you that, it’s not perfection you or your kids need. They need you to show up and be fully present with them – in the middle, in the mess, in the mistakes of it all. No matter what this will be a year that no student ever forgets.
We are cheering you on and sending you a socially distant cardboard high-five. If you haven’t seen it, check it out here from the @cardboardteach on Twitter 🙂
So share a silly song, read a great story, and lean into this year like never before!
