vBlog 1_Homeschooling in the Time of Corona: Day 1

Today begins Day 1 of e-Learning/homeschooling. So far, there have been some bumps, but, overall, we are figuring this out. This is one story amongst millions/billions of others around the world right now. As an educator of over 25 years who has taught multiple grade levels over the years, teaching my girls at home poses many interesting challenges (and opportunities). I am posting this vBlog as part of my EduSpirit journey and also as a way to provide support and solidarity with all my fellow educators (teachers, students, parents, caregivers, and all others navigating these strange times). Please feel free to comment about your experiences at home and what you are doing to support the children/students in your life.

End of day reflections:

Here are some resources you may want to check out for supporting learning at home. This is just a beginning list. I will keep posting as I come across more.
