Homeschooling in a Pandemic

I have been teaching my children since they were born. I knew that teaching would be a part of the job, but I never expected to homeschool them. I’m sure none of us expected to homeschool because of a pandemic either. I never imagined teaching them what was on someone else’s plan for the week for four months. Some children learn faster than others, and some are more self-motivated than others. Some parenting days are just easier than others. I just want to take this moment to acknowledge that homeschooling is difficult. More difficult than many parents ever imagined.  At least at school, teachers send kids off to the lunchroom for lunch, and at home, I am making that too. I have never in my life had so many hats as I do now. I just hope for more patience tomorrow.
