I don't know about you, but I'm struggling
Updated: Mar 20, 2020
It's really only been a few days since we really started social distancing to try and mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in Montana, but it feels like months.
Like many of you, I'm a parent, and with four kids out of school, I am a bit overwhelmed by the prospect of them being stuck at home with nothing to do for the foreseeable future. Don't get me wrong, I love my family and of course want us to do what we need to in order to keep each other safe during this pandemic, but wow - what are we going to do every day?
I started thinking about our situation and realized this isn't unique to my family. A lot of us are struggling to keep our kids entertained while we sort out what all of this means for our jobs, our parents, grandparents, our communities, everyone.
That is why I decided to start contributing the best way I know how - by taking my teaching to you all. Throughout this time of isolation, I will be sharing ways for you to remain connected. From science experiments and activities to do with your kids, to mental health tips to share with parents, and updated resources from the state to help us all navigate COVID-19, I want to be a resource for all of you.
In times like these, we need to stick together. We are going to get through this, and I hope you'll let become a small part of your family as we navigate this together.
Please sign up to receive email updates as I post new ideas and resources and let me know if there is something specific you'd like me to share. I want to be a resource for you.
