Like most of the United States, central western PA schools
have been closed for some time now. For children it seems
like school's been done for 2 1/2 months, for us parents
though, school is still going! Yes, children aren't spending
their days with their teachers, we are now their teachers.
We are killing it. Some parents aren't as well as others,
but I for one am!
I have 4 Elementary-aged children, 3 of which I have to have
hands on with their learning. The 4th one and my step-
daughter in middle school are capable on their own with a
little help when needed.
Daily I am a kindergarten teacher, a first grade teacher and
a second grade teacher. Not to mention the ocassional sixth
grade and eighth grade teachers as well.
So do I have my degree in Elementary education now?
Today was the big day. We handed in all the school work! I
have emailed each teacher daily with their work, but to get
credit the school needs it. It's done, it's there, summer
vacation here we are!!!
Now during this COVID season, what are we going to do? Are
we going to be able to do the summer things we are used to
like going to the beach and whatnot? I sure hope so.
What are some of your plans for summer?
