Have any of you seen this quote floating around on social media?
We don't know what September will hold for us but when we meet again all the teachers at Mitchell will be ready to support your child right where they are. Mitchell teachers are super heroes and together we will work to get your child back on track. In the meantime we have been fortunate to have educational platforms like Seesaw to continue our learning. We are teachers, we know the value of education but if you talk to most teachers, this is not the thing that keeps us up at night. We worry if our students and families are feeling emotionally supported. We worry about how they are dealing with isolation, we worry about the health of our students, and we worry if they are having to deal with illness or possible loss of loved ones. So share your calm with your children, enjoy their laughter.
I've learned that as my anxiety grows I can quiet it by thinking of the things that bring me joy. Things like laughing children, birds singing, and the sun rising. This time apart has been stressful but you are doing a great job. Keep up the good work and remember to forgive yourselves, we are all learning together.
