Inspired by a conversation with Trevor.
As we begin to welcome more students back to school for more days, I think it’s important to talk about mental health.
Some kids haven’t seen the inside of a school in more than a year.
Some teachers haven’t taught more than four students face to face in more than a year.
Let’s begin to welcome students back with a conversation. Start by asking how they are doing?
Ask them how they feel.
Share how you are feeling.
Don’t be afraid to discuss the anxiety that everyone is feeling.
Let’s have those discussions about mental health.
Conversations with students.
Conversations with colleagues.
Conversations with each other.
