After the past 18+ months we’ve had, I feel myself asking the question “is it just me?” The Littles coming into the classroom seem to be at a different maturity level. The transition hasn’t been easy for our Littles or us as teachers. So what is fair right now?
In this episode I talk to you about how to make time and space in your routine to understand where our Littles are at emotionally so we can break down our bigger goals to create smaller, more palatable change!
In this episode, we learn about:
