It is certainly disappointing that our quarantine times are continuing.  As a teacher, I miss being in the classroom and seeing the children very much.  I trust that you are all managing fairly well, but I know that it must be such a challenge. 

Not only are the kids stuck at home, which is not customary for most of them, but many of you are trying to work from home as well. 

If I can be of any help to you with ideas or encouragement, please feel free to contact me or leave a comment. Your ideas and feedback are welcome.

Sending you loads and loads of love,
