19 Things Teachers Really Want Parents And Students To Stop Doing In The Coronavirus Pandemic

1. Don't expect teachers to have all the answers right now.

2. Don't complain about the amount of work being assigned.

3. Don't forget that teachers have more on their plate right now than just, well, teaching.

4. Don't expect a 100% perfect education right now.

5. On the other hand, don't give up.

6. Don't call or text teachers outside of their dedicated hours.

7. Don't imply that teachers should give up their paychecks just because the schools are closed.

8. And if you're a parent, don't imply that YOU should get a cut of the teacher's paycheck just because you're home with your kid.

9. And while we're on the money topic, don't assume your teacher has financial security right now.

10. Don't ask the teacher to repeat instructions that have already been posted somewhere or emailed to you.

11. Don't blame teachers for the hiccups in digital learning.

12. Parents, don't email the teacher on behalf of your kid if they're old enough to do it themselves.

13. And if your kid isn't following directions or listening to you during "school" time, don't take out your frustrations on their teacher.

14. And don't forget that teachers have kids of their own, too.

15. Another tip for parents: don't "backseat teach."

16. Don't turn your camera off during Zoom lessons.

17. And don't goof off, misbehave, or do inappropriate things on Zoom calls.

18. Don't reach out to your teacher *only* when you have a complaint.

19. And finally, don't forget that teachers are people, too!

Inspirational Info


I heard that we are all in the same boat, but it's not like that at all. We are in the same storm, but not in the same boat. Your ship could be shipwrecked and mine might not be. Or vice-versa.

For some, quarantine is optimal. A moment of reflection, of re-connection, easy in flip flops, with a cocktail or coffee. For others, this is a desperate financial & family crisis.

For some that live alone they're facing endless loneliness. While for others it is peace, rest & time with their mother, father, sons & daughters.

With the $600 weekly increase in unemployment some are bringing in more money to their households than they were working. Others are working more hours for less money due to pay cuts or loss in sales.

Some families of 4 just received $3400 from the stimulus while other families of 4 saw $0.

Some were concerned about getting a certain candy for Easter while others were concerned if there would be enough bread, milk and eggs for the weekend.

Some want to go back to work because they don't qualify for unemployment & are running out of money. Others want to kill those who break the quarantine.

Some are home spending 2-3 hours/day helping their child with online schooling while others are spending 2-3 hours/day to educate their children on top of a 10-12 hour workday.

Some have experienced the near death of the virus, some have already lost someone from it and some are not sure if their loved ones are going to make it. Others don't believe this is a big deal.

Some have faith in God and expect miracles during this 2020. Others say the worst is yet to come.

So, friends, we are not in the same boat. We are going through a time when our perceptions and needs are completely different.

Each of us will emerge, in our own way, from this storm. It is very important to see beyond what is seen at first glance. Not just looking, actually seeing.

We are all on different ships during this storm experiencing a very different journey. ♥️ 🚢 ♥️
