As an educator myself, I can say confidently that we are working harder than ever before. This new world of online-emergency-remote-learning – or whatever else you want to call it – is not normal to any of us. Then, add the possible additional pressures of home-life chaos, children of your own you must teach at home, financial struggles, and mental health decline due to isolation and you have a stressful scenario most of us have never dealt with before.

This is why this year’s Teacher Appreciation Week is more important that ever. I hope you will take a minute this week to message your children’s teachers, text a fellow teacher, or call your teaching partner to tell them they are doing a great job. It is a message that goes a very long way when we are just trying to make it through day-by-day, doing the best we can under the circumstances.
