One year ago, Allison McDonald was teaching preschool in the state of Washington and writing her popular blog, No Time for Flash Cards. Like many other teachers, her class was suddenly canceled when the pandemic hit and the world shut down. After the initial shock, her school began talking about how they could safely move forward and continue serving children and families. While working with her team to answer those questions, Allison was fielding similar questions from teachers in her online world as well.
Over the past year, she’s been innovating to serve her own students while also supporting teachers around the globe during this unique and challenging period. Through it all, she’s not only discovered tips and concepts to help teachers through a pandemic, but she’s also identified key questions that we can all use to guide us now AND as we move forward.
