Even in the chaos swirling around you, there is a lesson to be learned. 2020 is going to be one of the most challenging seasons of our careers, however it doesn't all have to be bad. Each day you are becoming a better version of yourself if you are choosing to stay present, positive and in problem solving mode. Tune to hear Gretchen discuss how you can make each day count and not miss the lesson of the 2020-2021 school year.

Don't Miss the LessonQuotables

  • Walk out of the woods, be like Kevin from Home Alone. Whatever you have to do to survive is what you have to do. 
  • Everyday you may have come up with a new plan of what to do. You have to pivot!
  • We will get back what we put into our profession. It may be leaders decades later. We don’t know where the impact will be.
  • You will always get back more when you do it with a great heart and you give it your best.
  • This will be one of the hardest seasons of our career, but we will make 2020 worth it. 
  • You are becoming a professional at making split second decisions. You are adding invaluable skills to your resume. 
  •  Regardless of the chaos that swirls around you, educators are resilient.
  • 2020 doesn’t have to be memorable for just the bad. We can become the best versions of ourselves right now.
  • Stay present, stay positive and stay in problem solving mode.
