I am a teacher, and I went back to work this week. I just finished five days of pre-planning, and our students come back on Monday, most in person.
Some school districts are going back in person (maybe with an option for online), some are going back all online, some are waiting. I feel safe saying the vast majority of teachers are at least somewhat concerned, and some are extremely stressed. Some are even leaving the profession.
There’s a lot of negativity going on right now regarding school returning, especially online. I thought this thread could be the opposite, a place of encouragement for all the teachers of Ricochet – so please, share an encouraging word, quote, Bible verse, story, etc. below. I know I and the other teachers here would appreciate it.
I lift my eyes toward the mountains. Where will my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. | Psalms 121:1-2 CSB
Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. | Philippians 4:6-7
You will keep the mind that is dependent on You in perfect peace, for it is trusting in You. | Isaiah 26:3
