You've probably heard somebody describe remote learning like this - educators are building the plane while they are flying.
I dare say at this point, the plane is built and many of you are flying beautifully. I invite you this weekend to step back and reflect on this awesome plane you have helped build. You're going to see some things running smoothly and some things that might need to go back to the drawing board.

Thinking back to the analogy. It does leave out one part of your experience. You have basically been in a lab setting where your every move has been watched and critiqued. So go ahead and give yourself a pat on the back. If you are lucky enough to be at home with someone you love, ask them for a big bear hug. And squeeze them back hard!! Then exhale slowly and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Give yourself some quiet moments and listen to librarian Amy Andrews as she reflects on the transition from a fixed to flexible schedule. Listen here.
