Stronger & More Resilient
"This was an unprecedented situation and I am so grateful to the teachers for making this a productive year for students despite everything."
When school buildings first closed, we were all filled with dread over the danger and uncertainty of it all. We were thankful that CMS took prompt action with regards to the safety of our children.
The most challenging part has been the loss of routine, everyday social interactions and enriching activities. My student is an introvert, so he was relatively alright initially. But this kind of a situation where one is connected virtually--but not really--is a tricky one. It gradually plays havoc with your emotional well-being.
What has been the most rewarding? It has to be our family spending more time together and rediscovering interpersonal dynamics. Also, I personally feel our teachers did an EXTRAORDINARY job with virtual learning. This was an unprecedented situation and I am so grateful to the teachers for making this a productive year for students despite everything.
I have learned that I can survive with very little and it’s all about willpower. I have learned my children are more resilient and sensible than I gave them credit for. Of course there have been challenges, some considerable. But ultimately, I think this pandemic has made us stronger.
