The times we’re living in have certainly changed our lives in the short run and I think they’ll have a long lasting effect on us too. I suspect many of us will have a new appreciation for the ability to live life the way we want to, to go where we want to go, and for things as simple as dining out with friends when things do return to normal. I know many of us will have a new respect and appreciation for the work our teachers do each day because many of us are helping students to do that work with kids at home perhaps for the rest of the school year. Keeping at-home students on track, motivated and devoted to the tasks they’ve been given are new challenges many of us have never had to deal with before. If you’re like me you’ve probably been impressed at the level and difficulty of work students are expected to do each day as well. I also think there may be a fair number of people out there who’ve been thinking home-schooling might be a good option who are rethinking that whole idea too. That’s the way I see it.
