Teaching With Anxiety is Hard - 8 Tips to Help You Cope

"Living with anxiety is difficult. And teaching with anxiety can be especially difficult. Teachers can’t just close their office (classroom) door and take a moment to compose themselves. They can’t just go for a short walk around the building to get their breathing and heart rate back to normal."

Third-grade teacher dies of COVID-19 while students were in quarantine

Davis's brother, Stan Andrews, told WSOC-TV that he was upset at the claim that his sister did not get sick after returning to in-person work.

"She told me when I talked to her that she had definitely gotten it from the school," he said.

Davis's husband and son have both tested negative for COVID-19, but remain in quarantine, meaning the family cannot grieve together.

A third-grade teacher in North Carolina died over the weekend following a recent COVID-19 diagnosis, roughly two months after the school district resumed some in-person classes.

Merle Rutledge for Virginia Governor discusses his recent road trip to Gloucester, Culpeper #2A, and Fredericksburg. Rutledge outlines his plans for teachers and students. It's time to get them college educated and career ready much sooner then later. A plan for a debt free education and making teachers entrepreneurs with better pay and more control of their classrooms. This part starts at the 15 minute mark of this video.
Thank you for your hard work, chasing down elusive answers and continuing to push for solutions that are best for students AND staff.
BEFORE there is talk of opening schools and the safety of students, shouldn't.... All teachers and staff be tested and quarantined (if they test positive) BEFORE schools open? All teachers and staff be assessed to determine who are at the highest at-risk, ie... compromised immune systems? All teachers be surveyed as to who would be willing to teach "face-to-face" (lowest at-risk).....and who would be willing to teach "virtually" (highest at-risk)? Parents and students decide which form of education (in person, virtual or a mix) they prefer, which would determine how many teachers are need for all scenarios? These are just a few questions I have while listening to all the news about "just opening schools". It seems the news is just concerned with the safety of students with no regards to the safety of faculty and staff, especially those that have compromised immune systems.
