    • Coaching/relationship building is better in person
    • Connections are richer with staff and students this school year
    • Work-life balance in person has been challenging
    • Accessibility may be key to balance - social vs personal space

    • Relationships and building empathy are important and changes your approach and outlook
    • Pandemic has highlighted so many issues in education and pushed our learning
