We are moving right along and love seeing everyone, even if it’s on Zoom. While we are all thinkers and we are striving to find balance, let’s not forget how far we have come. We have multiple accomplishments to celebrate!
With this said, we want to brag on our teaching staff that continue to seek out learning opportunities to enhance student learning, who have all learned new tools for their instructional practices, and smile through the struggle! Our Meridian family is working together, powering through.
Just today in team meetings, teachers were sharing strategies and resources with one another. They were also bragging on students. Students are our joy, the reason we stay in education. And here at Meridian, we have excellent students. We have seen many principled students signing in to Zoom classes on their own and doing incredible work during breakout sessions. And parents, you too have been incredible: supporting students, reaching out with questions, participating in our surveys, and contributing through committee work.
Here is a little something trending on Twitter (source unknown) for the times when we don’t feel so confident:
Affirmations as we continue in distance learning...
The best I can do is my best.
How human of me to feel nervous about trying something new.
I will give myself the same grace I give others.
I may not be able to control this situation, but I have control over my attitude.
This is temporary.
I can do difficult things.
I don’t have to have it all figured out to move forward.
I will make mistakes, and that is okay.
Lions are in this together! Let's give ourselves and others grace!
