I love Rita Pierson!! I watch her video exactly how the presenter does!! I need a quick pick me up or to remind myself of what is important. It should be shared with everyone.
I always thought it was only my job to know about the kids, but never thought of them knowing about me. I love this idea and will use it in my coming up years.

I'm using journals right now as people are apart from each other during the COVID-19 closure. It really has helped!
