Reintroducing The Prepared Parent!

TeacherVision will continue to partner with our sister site, Family Education, to bring you a new and improved "The Prepared Parent": a weekly newsletter for parents and teachers that has everything that you need to homeschool and teach online during this unprecedented and unpredictable time of COVID-19.

How are you doing?

A lot has happened since last March, and our lives have continued to be altered due to COVID-19. Schools have flip-flopped from in-person to hybrid to remote since school opened in September, and may continue to pivot in real time as we see a COVID-19 surge tick upwards over the upcoming winter months. Many teachers are still teaching online from their homes, while many parents are juggling work and trying to oversee their children's remote learning from home. As we begin to hunker down [again!] for the remainder of 2020, we could all use some help and support.

As a mother of two children and a former public school educator who continues to support teachers, I am experiencing many of these challenges myself (working from home and overseeing my children's hybrid schooling).  Rather than panic, our team here at TeacherVision continues to ask ourselves: What can we do to help?

So we continue to team up with our sister site, FamilyEducation, by providing a weekly newsletter called The Prepared Parent. Together we have curated our best resources to help you, your students, and your families teach, play, cope, and pause during this time.
