I can't even wrap my head around the thought that I have seven more weeks of this. 🤯 I know every state, every district, and every school is different. I've heard some teachers cannot use any paper/pencil whatsoever with their students, and ... Read More about Let Me Help You
Hi. I'm not doing a very good job of blogging lately and I would apologize except there is a pandemic going on, and I don't know what day it is, and I just think we are all doing the best we can. Before I go any further, I would just like everyone to know that I understand and grasp the fact that I am safe and healthy in my home, and that my loved ones are safe and healthy in their homes, as ...
