This August, I will put on a mask and pack a personal bottle of hand sanitizer in my teacher bag next to my favorite grading pens. I will come back to the classroom because it is the most important space where I can make a difference. I will return as a teacher every fall for the foreseeable future because of the challenge, not in spite of it. Books will be loved by the right reader without my tutelage, but I will not be the same without the opportunity to teach.
Guest post: A secluded paradise down the river from Wekiwa Springs, Wekiva Island offers an array of outdoor activities and recreation for all ages! It’s not really a state park but more of a recreation area with easy access to a state springs (if you’re willing to paddle a bit!). While this awesome outdoor Mecca is easily accessible from Orlando, it’s a well-kept, local secret.
