I’m not going to lie, it’s been a tough 6 months. There have certainly been many days when I was grateful for the restrictions because I’m not sure I could do anything but stay at home and just make the most of each day with my family. But at some point I started to feel a new enthusiasm grow and it was largely driven by this group of women working together in the most extraordinary of circumstances. Each time one of them suggested a new idea for a class, made the jump to online teaching, offered to deliver fliers, or even just told me how much they are enjoying teaching again, it made me smile. They amaze me with their resilience, their focus, their incredible wealth of skills and knowledge and most of all their compassion. I’m blessed to be working with them.
