School is back in session. Although we are still remote until October 1st, we are running our normal schedule and students are once again learning after a long summer away. As I have been hopping in and out of Zoom classes with students, I have heard students engaged, asking questions, sharing their work and just feeling positive about being back in a space with other students. While so much about this year is different, some key things remain the same. Learning is a social endeavor, and allowing our students to get to know their teachers and each other in a safe space, and provide opportunities to stretch them as students and as people, will make this a fulfilling year for everyone.
