Teachers Are Not OK. Be Patient and Kind.

This Scary Mommy piece (~5 min read) is my first ever to go viral. Within hours of it being online, people shared the article hundreds of times with thousands of comments and reactions.

I wish I could credit my writing, but that's not it. This piece taps into the frustrations and feelings of every teacher I know. For two years, they have worked miracles to teach our kids. Now, as the life-threatening aspects of the pandemic are going down, they find themselves as the targets of America's culture wars. For many, it is too much.

The strategies I recommend in this piece are easy: be kind, show patience, have a plan. Simple acts can make a profound difference in the life of a teacher who is struggling.

Once you finish, reach out to your favorite teacher and let them know you're thinking about them.
