Dear parents… a note from all teachers

I needed to hear this, boy I needed this – a note from all the teachers on Planet Earth.⁠

Dear Parents,⁠

Don’t stress about schoolwork. In September, I will get your children back on track. I am a teacher and that’s my superpower. What I can’t fix is social-emotional trauma that prevents the brain from learning.⁠

So right now, I just need you to share your calm, share your strength and share your laughter with your children. No kids are ahead. No kids are behind. Your children are exactly where they need to be.⁠

With love, all the teachers on planet Earth.⁠

Let’s remind ourselves, however well or not well we think we’re doing, that it’s going to be okay. ⁠

Thank you to all the teachers out there juggling this pandemic, your home lives, your own kids and ours!⁠

Thank you dear Marby and Elm for the wonderful pic and handwriting too xx
