All teachers are working extra hard during this pandemic, and I know one who is pushing through each obstacle she faces. She is an advocate for her 1st grade virtual students and prioritizing the growth of their young minds with every trick/tool she knows. During many nights, she's the last car to leave school. My favorite memory is watching her talk about her student's so passionately and purposefully even when she's at home with family. She often says, "They teach me as much as I teach them."
