Blissful Year

Cassie Stephens

Tennessee elementary art teacher Cassie Stephens continues to remind her readers that ‘we got this’. And, the reality is that she continues to seek ideas and design lessons that ‘walk that walk’.

Recently she interviewed family doctor Dr. Deborah Gilboa who is a resilience expert and whose skills are in high demand with the pandemic. Cassie learned some tips on how to manage her own stress during the school year and you can listen to part of the interview at THIS LINK.

In her first two weeks in her classroom Cassie realized what she misses most is being able to tell how her students are really doing since she couldn’t see their faces where they normally provide the continuous reminder of feelings. Cassie’s response? She built a lesson around creating facial expressions so each student has the necessary tools to communicate with Cassie. Find the lessons at THIS LINK. I plan to use the idea with my middle schoolers. If you have ideas you’d like to share please contact me at meartsed@gmail.com.

Please remember in order to provide for our students we need to take care of ourselves.
