The New Normal
PCTELA Family...how are you? The start of the 2020-2021 school year has truly been like none other. You and your colleagues are working harder than ever before, and bringing to our students an educational experience we never planned for. For some, your summer was just as busy, possibly serving on your institutions pandemic committee, to assist in bringing our students back in the safest way possible. For others, it was hopefully a chance to take a small break and catch yourself from the winter, where in a moments notice you took the learning and teaching from your classroom to your living room.
As we begin to restart from the pause that was the first half of the year, we cautiously enter the final act of 2020 (which might be a good thing :-). Know that PCTELA and your professional family is here with you to help in ANY and ALL the ways we can. Our new format of presenting information to you via this blog was off to a great start prior to the events of earlier this year. Realizing we all were in survive and sustain mode, we took a pause. We now will be entering back into the conversation, both with the normal slate of reoccurring entries, as well as ones specific to this "new normal".
As always, our members have the best voices, so please contribute. Drop a e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with what you have to share with others. Be well, stay safe, and keep learning.
Together, as ever, as one,
The PCTELA Community
