Coronavirus Chronicles 026 – Sarah Pyle Academy

I am talking with schools to see how they’re responding in the wake of this global pandemic. I invite you to join me for the Coronavirus Chronicles, a series of 10- to 15-minute check-ins with educators all over.

Episode 026 is below. Thank you, Kristina MacBury, for sharing how Sarah Pyle Academy in Delaware is adapting to our new challenges and opportunities. I especially appreciated our conversation about students with mental health needs and ways to serve them during remote instructional contexts. Kristina also mentioned her new project, Recovery Mode, which is focused on leadership behaviors and support structures during rapid change events like the COVID-19 pandemic. Some links to that work are immediately below.
