As I sit here writing this post it’s been 6 weeks (42 days) since the announcement came from the provincial government that all in-class instruction in our schools was being suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
If I’m being completely honest … it feels like its been closer to 6 months. The information onslaught, video-conference calls and numerous educational changes have been relentless. Changes that include:
- from how we were doing school to an UNFAMILIAR way of teaching, learning and assessing;
- feeling UNSETTLED about not knowing what comes next;
- increased levels of ANXIETY among many in our community.
