I’ve done a few posts over the years to honor teachers, especially this time of year. As I have such wonderful memories of my own school-age experiences, as well as of the wonderful mentoring I received while getting my undergraduate degree in early childhood education, I didn’t think I could possibly have more admiration for these overworked, underpaid, tireless advocates for children. And then 2020 hit like some horrible never-ending nightmare. Like so many frontline workers, teachers stepped up and rose to the challenge to navigate complicated new ways of teaching. One such teacher is one of our fellow bloggers, Jennie Fitzkee.
Jennie has been teaching for over thirty years, and she’s the epitome of what I think of when I hear the word teacher. If you’re not familiar with her blog, A Teacher’s Reflections, https://jenniefitzkee.com I highly recommend you pop over and visit. Her posts never fail to put a smile on my face and brighten my day. She is a constant source of inspiration and hope, two commodities that we’re in precious need of now more than ever before.
