Questions About Going Back To School This Fall? Chat Live With #NJMOM This Tuesday At 8:30PM


When Governor Murphy gave the green light to opening schools this coming fall, it brought on a wave of relief, but also a lot of questions about what’s safe and what’s the right path to going back. That’s why for this week’s Instagram LIVE series, we’re chatting with a mom who’s been there and knows both perspectives—teacher and founder of the website, This Season’s Gold, Jessica Lisboa. To hear what she thinks about going back-to-school during COVID, what changes to expect and how she’s prepping for her students, and her son, head over to our Instagram page on Tuesday at 8:30 PM and click the live button on our logo. Send a quick hello in the comments, tell us how you’re doing, or ask us a question—we’d love to hear from you.

 Jessica Lisboa, of This Season’s Gold, is a mother, educator, actor, entrepreneur, and motivational speaker.

About Jessica

Jessica Lisboa is a proud #NJMOM to the sweetest little boy and a little girl in heaven, as well as a high school theatre teacher. Along with teaching, acting, motivational speaking, and being a mom, Jessica has created her own website, This Season’s Gold, where she shares little bits of her life from style to beauty, motherhood to travel, and more. When COVID hit New Jersey and schools shut down, not only did Jessica have to quickly adapt her classrooms and students to distant learning, but she had to juggle helping her son adapt to his new online class setting, too. Now, with in-person school starting up again, Jessica will discuss what we can do to start getting ready to go back to school now, how we can prepare little by little, and tips to make the transition easier on both your kiddos and their teachers.
