Back to school

Back to school

Hello, my little fishes …Professor Orbie here!

With all the little fishes going back to School this week (well home schooling in their own fishbowl), here is something for you to ponder in these times.

The teachers did not sign up for this home schooling either.

Imagine their lives are about to become one giant conference call with two dozen seven-year old’s who have no set bedtime, are hyped up on way too much chocolate and whatever their parents have been stress-baking for the past 3 weeks.

What could possibly go wrong?

But by these teachers just showing up, by checking in, by caring enough to do to their job – they have already taught the little fishes some important things in life:

  • Taught them that people are flexible – they adapt to new things.
  • Taught them that people will show up for them even when it’s hard.
  • Taught them that communities work together for the greater good.
  • Taught them the world is a good place. That even when circumstance are scary, people are good.

Till next time…keep swimming and stay safe.
