They say the best way to really learn something is to teach it.
We do it in our classrooms all of the time. We assign students to share projects with the class. We jigsaw articles so students have to summarize and teach information. Teaching helps learning.
I need to practice what I teach. Especially last Saturday’s lesson.
Give it a watch if you, like me, have been a little hard on yourself over the quarantine.
We’re living through a pandemic. It’s totally okay to love your baby, knit socks, and keep up on dishes.
You don’t have to:
- Go back to grad school
- Have an even better garden this year
- Read even more books this year
- Lose all your baby weight
- Start a new side hustle
…just for a few examples.
All of the above are expectations I have had for myself, and have beaten myself up over not having accomplished with my super-extended maternity leave. I need to remind myself that I’m okay just the way I am. My mission at the moment is to stay safe at home with my baby, and I’m doing just that.
