Crisis schooling exhaustion is real.
It's not just you, your routine (or lack of routine) or something that you can just figure out and then it goes away.
Think back to when you've had other changes in your life forced into your daily routines.
Maybe it was a move, a marriage, a divorce, a death, a job change, special needs challenges or a surprise medical diagnosis ... whatever it was, it was exhausting. But it was different. You knew the exhaustion was temporary and you either had survived this type of life change before or you knew someone who had gone through it. In fact, you or that someone you know probably came out stronger on the other side.
Here's the huge difference of what is happening right now. You and your children or students have been forced into a huge change, it's exhausting, and we don't know when it will end. We don't even have specific examples of how people have survived this in the past because schools have NEVER been shut down like this before.
Parents and Teachers... look at these minutes recommended by the Illinois State Board of Ed.
Give yourself grace. Kids aren’t supposed to work for 6 hours at home. Your goal is NOT to replicate school at home.
Your goal is to care for a child as a whole person first and then facilitate additional learning.
