Learning From This Crisis As We Move Ahead

Winston Churchill has numerous quotes he is famous for. Among them is “Never let a good crisis go to waste”. The last few months would certainly qualify as a crisis in my book. The normal that we knew got shook upside down. So where do we go from here? I would put out there that we should not let this crisis go to waste and should learn from it.

No matter what role a person is in, there is much to be learned from the past two and half months. What new skills were needed in this crisis? In what ways did we get stretched and pulled that we can spend the summer learning more about? What are some possibilities we face as we go back to school that we need to get ready for this summer? Any and all questions lead us to using our time this summer to learn, reimagine and reinvent. 

I would encourage everyone to think about what has transpired and what possibly lies ahead. We would love to help any teacher, paraprofessional, administrator or board member reinvent their learning culture or to take time to reimagine your classrooms and learning environments. What can we take from this crisis that makes us better? The future can be whatever we dream it to be. 

Please let us know if we can be of any help in this process. Visit our website and look for opportunities.  If you don’t see what you need please challenge us to come up with it for you.

One thing I hear from schools all the time is that they need textbooks. With the hits school budgets have been taking, schools haven’t had the money to adopt new textbooks, and now the textbook fund has been completely zeroed out.
