New Year Nerves: Teacher Writes Book to Calm Students during COVID

September 18, 2020 - Employee Excellence

When Mitchell Elementary 2nd grade teacher, Elaine Weck, watched a school board meeting over the summer—where they discussed the reopening plan for the fall—she immediately thought of her students. She knew they would be nervous and possibly stressed about the new procedures when they returned to school, especially at the elementary level.

She decided to put her thoughts into a book that would help her students put their fears aside to be comfortable and ready to learn.

It is the first book she has ever written, and it has been well-received by the students in her class and other classes at the school. Congratulations to Ms. Weck!
