Ok guys, time to address the elephant in the room. Parents across America are STRUGGLING with Remote Learning or Virtual Learning or Prison School (as Tracey calls it) and loads of kids are struggling even more. This global pandemic has upended all our lives in so many ways, but those of us with school aged children have a whole new layer of anxiety, stress and frustration when it comes to navigating remote learning with our kiddos. So, let's talk about it.
In this episode we go deep with Ms. Josie a 4th grade teacher here in Denver (you may remember her from Episode 37 - What Do Teachers Really Want From Parents?) and we hold nothing back. But neither does she. We ask her all the questions we've all had these past few weeks, and she offers quite a lot of perspective from both sides of the school desk.
If you've had any grumblings while trying to navigate virtual learning these past few weeks (and who hasn't?) please do yourself a favor: lock yourself in the closest - or better yet - go for a looong walk and take the time to listen to this very important conversation. We hope it helps.
We love you! This sucks, but we know you're doing the best you can. And to all the teachers trying to make the best of an equally crappy situation. We salute you. We really, really do.
