Hello Drillers!

How are you? Really, How are YOU?

It’s been a rough journey for me. I’ve never been through something like this before so I didn’t know how to prepare myself for it. Learning how to operate Canvas, changing up all my lessons virtually, and figuring out how to make the learning fun and engaging were just some of the things I struggled with.

But you know what? All the struggle, frustration, and a steep learning curve are all worth it. Late night Remind texts, emails, and messages are all worth it. Weekend lesson planning and grading are worth it.

Because you matter to me.

This year is definitely different but not difficult, because we are all in this together.

Sincerely,

A Teacher
