I’m Matt Miller, and I know exactly how you feel. It’s my passion to equip teachers to thrive in this new era of education and think differently about the craft of teaching. It’s back to school time again and this year might be different once again. As summer comes to a close teachers are preparing for that big first day of school. This year, for many of us, it means going back to in-person instruction after over a year away. Or perhaps your instruction is a hybrid of in-person teaching and distance learning.
However, one thing we know is true, no matter where you or your students are learning from, those first few weeks of school are crucial for community and relationship building. Lucky for us, many of the beginning-of-the-year activities we know and love can be done in any classroom!
