Teaching looks very different this year ! This time last year, I was torn about returning to work as a public school teacher. While I loved my career and students so much, my caretaker situation wasn’t ideal. Leaving Celine with a nanny for 9 hours a day and seeing her for a few short hours in the evening just didn’t feel right. ⁣⁣⠀ ⁣⁣⠀ After deciding to take an extended family leave and getting some backlash for doing so, The Village was born. A place for parents to spend quality time with their children while also having an option of focusing on work or choosing to relax as their children play and learn in a safe and clean environment. ⁣⁣⠀ ⁣⁣⠀ The Village was created by and for families. While many would predict that a business like this would fail during these uncertain times, the need for The Village is further reinforced. As the demand for safe, clean, and educational environments grows, we are grateful that we have been able to provide learning pods for 20 students. I am now lucky enough to say that I am teaching once again! Providing children with an education they need and deserve is a passion of mine and is something I will never give up.⠀ ⁣⁣⠀ ⁣⁣⠀ This is my year 8 teaching in my happy place. I am so unbelievably grateful to have been able to take this chance and be given the opportunity to teach once again. ⁣⁣⠀ ⁣⁣⠀ How has having kids paved your path? ⁣⁣⠀ ⁣⁣⠀ ⁣⁣⠀ #northjerseymom #momblog #coolmom #njmom #mom #women #womenfounders #businesswomen #womensupportingwomen #momboss #playspace #moms #njmomblog #njblog #love #teachlove #cofounders #woodentoys #hobokenmom #njtoys #toystore #njtoystore #village ⁣⁣⠀

Welcome back to the FIRST DAY OF HOMESCHOOL 2020!…Where everyday is pajama day! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you are new to my page, hi! I'm Melissa and these are my three kids! We are pre-pandemic homeschoolers going into our second year of homeschool. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last year, as we began #homeschoollife we quickly discovered that most days would be spent learning in our pjs. My childhood dream for sure! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anyways, this is how school looks for us this year and we are excited, (although not completely ready) to get started! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What does school look like for you this year? Home in your PJs? In person? Or a combo?

🥰🥰 “Let go of your heart⁣ Let go of your head⁣ And feel it now.” ~ David Gray 🥰🥰⁣ ⁣ So many feelings. So many emotions. Along with exhaustion, stress, lunch packing, double & triple checking school lists, extra clothes, everything labeled. But all #worthit because these teachers are putting in 1️⃣1️⃣0️⃣% to make it work when the world is in a very strange place right now.⁣ ⁣ We may not know what lies ahead & we most certainly can’t predict the future. All we can do is do our best in the given climate. This has been our recent ethos at oceans 🌊.⁣ ⁣ We’re super EXCITED for our son to start! Kids are really resilient & more adaptable than we think sometimes. So even though all this “new normal” is hard for us to process these kids can adapt & acclimate. They got this!!! 👊👊👊⁣ ⁣ In the meantime, all we can do is TRY. Try to make the BEST of it. Try to get COMFORTABLE with the UNCOMFORTABLE. FEEL all the feelings & emotions because we need to to get through this. Parenthood is a wild ride & while absolutely no one could’ve predicted this, we gotta chalk it up to part of this WONDEROUS journey called life.⁣ ⁣ Masks on 😷😷😷! Smiles on 😁😁😁!!! Wishing everyone a HAPPY 😊 back to school whatever it may look like! . . . #backtoschool #firstdayofschool #2020schoolyear #school #preschool #backtoschool2020 #westfieldnj #njfamily #njmom #momlife #dadlife #toddlerlife #cranfordnj #learn #feel #grow #smilesthatmakeasplash
