Monday started with a lot of uncertainty as teachers, students, and families got their first look at what many are now referring to as “the new normal.” Coast to coast, we shifted from daily routines of rushed mornings, busy school days moving from classroom to classroom, and afternoons filled with practices and homework to long days learning and working remotely in our homes together.
Here at XQ, we’ve spent much of our week working closely with our schools and partners, listening intently to better understand the gaps and needs of the people in our community and around the country. As we’ve worked, we’ve been inspired and motivated by the people who have stepped up to do their part and make a real difference.
We know that some days it feels like we’re learning more than we’re teaching, there’s always beauty to be found in moments like these. So, keep your head up. We got this!
Here are 10 things that inspired us this week that we hope will inspire you, too:
