Introducing... Ask an Educator (and our new blog!)
A teacher friend recently posed a difficult situation occurring in her advisory, and we talked about context, intervention ideas, and what supports already existed. Too often we don’t have the time, energy, or proper resources to seek help, and we turn to each other for advice, lesson plans, or sometimes just a little validation and empathy. Frequently this need extends beyond the classroom, from frustrations with administrative duties and negative interactions with adults to self-care and philosophical ponderings that prove necessary from time to time.
To bridge that gap, we're excited to introduce Ask an Educator. You submit questions (/frustrations/conundrums) and we tap into our team of educators (teachers, counselors, social workers) who will gladly offer feedback and resources. (Think: education's version of Ann Landers.) We all know this time of the year often proves especially frustrating, so submit your questions in the comments below, on our facebook page, or by emailing email@example.com. Stay tuned for Ask an Educator part 1, coming soon!
