We know—you’re just doing your job. 

We want you to know we see you.  

Your decisions, never made lightly, which have a ripple effect on your entire community. 

Your planning to bring necessary tech infrastructure to homes without any. 

Your struggles to ensure hungry kids won’t miss their only reliable meals. 

Your herculean challenge to ensure a generation of kids won’t lag behind on essential knowledge and skills despite closures stretching into weeks. 

Your magic behind a 2D screen, making learning come to life in households across your community. 

Your improvisation and willingness to learn—and teach—entirely on the fly. 

Your worries. Your uncertainty. Your fears about looming deadlines. 

Your hopes for health, and your best efforts.  

We see it all, and we thank you.

Your herculean challenge to impart essential knowledge and skills despite closures stretching into weeks.
Your magic behind a 2D screen, making learning come to life in households.
Your improvisation and willingness to learn—and teach—entirely on the fly.
Your worries. Your uncertainty. Your fears about looming deadlines.
Your hopes for health, and your best efforts.

We see it all, and we thank you.
