My morning class will start again in 6 weeks. It is not that far off. My morning class meets in an Elementary School building. I teach moms English at the school where their children go. Classes for the children will begin in Mid August.
Some things to PLEASE remember about teachers when the school year begins. I interact with teachers for the children all of the time.
1- Teachers have no say in decisions about whether to have classes on site or not. If you complain about it to the teacher, you are only piling on them over something they have NO Control over.
2- Teachers care about your children.
3- Teachers had NO CONTROL over decisions about the shutdowns of school. They tried to make the best of an impossible situation for the sake of your children.
4- Teachers can not refuse to let children into class. Doctors can refuse to see patients showing signs of COVID in their office. Teachers can send the child to the school nurse.
5- Teachers had NO say in the decisions about whether to have in person classes, about requiring children to wear masks, or anything. They will be trying to make the best of an impossible situation.
The list could go on!!!
The coming school year is a time that we can show teachers the love of Jesus, the fruit of the Spirit, and gratitude.
I know this is not a normal type of post for me, but it is an issue near and dear to me.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
