You’ve made it. This is becoming a trend with you ! Welcome to Week 8 of the #8weeksofsummer Blog Challenge 2021. Not only have you stood through a tumultuous time in education, but if you have the fortitude to be reflecting post-process, you’ve probably thrived –  what has been the most beneficial to you, new knowledge, skills, new attitudes? 

As we rejoin the coming school year and all the fresh challenges it brings, some of our colleagues will not be joining us. Some choose a different path than you choose. What intestinal fortitude have you developed over this past pandemic teaching that you will bring to the new school year?

Share the idea of blogging with your colleagues as a way to process the full year of multiple communication styles and types. Take the ideas of the friends in this challenge and hopefully build a future teaching repertoire prepared for multiple communication styles and types!

The Prompt:

Share new knowledge/skills/attitudes you gained this past year.
