ImageImages like this one will be the norm this year.  Forty-Five students in a classroom is something that I have never seen before, nor should it be.  However, like many things in life, you get dealt a hand that is out of your control.  How you handle adversity truly defines who you are as a person.  My main objective as an educator is the form powerful relationships with my students that will, hopefully, allow me to motivate and encourage their success.  The challenge this year:  can you form meaningful relationships with 200 plus students?

I’ll let you know the answer to this question at the end of the school year.  In the meantime, everyone needs to step up their game, which starts with me.  “We’re all in this together” should be the running theme this year.  Communication is key, so, more than any time in your educational career, please advocate for yourself!  Take care, and despite all of the obstacles, have a wonderful year!!!
