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,
