139 – SPARK – A Corona Lament: Giving Shape to Our Struggle

By Tim Cavey

As educators, we will do what we can during this crisis.
We will acknowledge the shape of our sadness.
And we will love kids. We will serve parents. We will support each other.
Where we find problems, we will form solutions.
Where we lack resources, we will improvise.
Where we need to change strategies, we will innovate.
It won’t look perfect, but it will be our best.
And in the struggle that our societies and schools face right now, that’s all we can do.
Welcome to SPARKS: mini-segments intended to spark your thinking and ignite your practice. These short episodes are based on my written reflections, which you can find on the Teachers on Fire Magazine at Medium.com.
