This morning I was impressed by an article in the Free Press about what school is like during this pandemic. The journalist wrote a thorough description of what a classroom looks and feels like with masks and glass dividers in the classroom.
The teacher asked the grade 3/4 class to write about milestones in their lives. At first the class was stumped. Then a student suggested a trip his family had taken, being able to finally ride his bike, and then the class was abuzz with ideas.
A remark by the teacher that warmed my heart was that the changes are going well. And, she remarked that she wonders why we didn’t do what’s they’re doing now, before. Change is challenging but necessary.
Rather than staying stressed about our present pandemic, let’s be grateful for what is going well.
