In these uncertain times I wanted to reach out and provide support and resources that are available to us. I hope to continue weekly communication updates and as always feel free to reach out to me for anything.

Tips on teaching kids at home! - 1. we made a daily schedule, 2. we had a family meeting and explained to our kids what was going to happen (you are going to get bored...Mommy & Daddy still need to work, we need to listen and love each other), 3. we created a learning environment (the kids enjoyed making their mini school), and 4. we said it is OK to get off schedule
Stay safe my friends,
