Helping teachers find a sense of calm, balance and rejuvenation in these unprecedented times is critical. They’re under enormous pressure. But how do you do that in a virtual environment? How do you nurture connection, support and community?
Two keys: relationship and instruction. Investing time and energy into these areas has helped us foster morale, focus on a purpose and create a sense of normalcy for our teams.
It also includes renewed focus on teacher support and relationship. To help staff unwind, our school recently hosted a virtual Kahoot! game, and we’re planning another session to close out the year. It was so fun to sit “together” virtually and laugh at everyone trying to stay on top of the leaderboard. Laughter is refreshing.
