“The test of a great teacher is not how many questions you can ask your students that they will answer readily, but how many questions you inspired your students to ask which you find it hard to answer.” - Alice Rollins
We, as educators, have endured the test of time. The past two years created a test of questions that were almost impossible to answer. The learning curve was moved to accommodate our inability to pass the tests of 2020 and 2021. So here we are today still faced with the uncertainties of our new way of living. COVID-19, Delta/Omicron Variants, N/KN95 masks, PCR test (polymerase chain reaction), Rapid test, and Asymptomatic were some of the new words added to our vocabulary list. We have googled the initials/acronyms to define CDC, OSHA, and PCR.
Let us girth ourselves with a breastplate and a shield to protect our bodies from the upcoming tests of 2022.
