Anyone you ask, even non-teachers, will agree we are experiencing a new and challenging time. Numerous teachers I have talked with in-person and online, are very overwhelmed with all this new information and getting ready for the school year. I believe collaboration with coworkers and your professional learning network (PLN) will both be very important for this school year. It was already important before, but I think it will play a bigger role this year. It helps you gain new ideas, continue to learn, and keep tabs on your students. We are all learning new things this year, and it is overwhelming at times and adds extra stress.
