“I can’t teach you, if I don’t know you.” -Author Unknown
One thing that we as educators have learned is the power of human connection. Oh, how we long to hug and be with our students. Unfortunately, we are reminded daily that we are still in a pandemic AND 6 feet apart with masks on is our new temporary normal! I had the chance to chat with LaMar, a middle school English teacher and college professor, who shared ways that he has and continues to build community while creating an environment of joy with his students, regardless of the environment. If you want to learn more about LaMar, follow him on Twitter at @teachLTL.
