Questions and answers

21 Apr

Officially, I have office hours. All the teachers in my district do. And yet, I get interesting questions by email at all times of the day (and night). I thought I’d share a few of these with you today, with my answers.

    Wow!

    Sincerely, Kathleen Parker 💕

    I love your response in to these questions! It must be so reassuring to your students to know that you are not in a panic and they shouldn’t be either!
