Hello to everyone! I hope you had a great week. For me and my house, this was one of the best weekends ever. Why? Because I just love being with my family! We laugh, we play, we have meals together, we talk, we disagree and we cry. LaWanna makes sure we exercise together, but most of all, we love each other as a family because we know this is the day the Lord has made! We will rejoice and be glad in it!

Question for today: have you ever thought about how hard it is to teach a virtual class. Teachers are embracing new techniques to keep students engaged as they learn virtually. Some teachers I have talked with said, “It is hard, but we are getting it done.” One of the biggest things they worry about is how well students understand the material, not how well they can access the material. We have great teachers and parents that are working together to make sure the students are getting what he or she needs to be successful while we are in this pandemic.
