In a personal essay for Chalkbeat, Cara Schiavone, who teaches in Washington, D.C., writes that the need remains for what she calls “too nice” teachers.

“So as we get ready to throw Zoom and hybrid teaching aside in favor of a return to the classroom next year,” she writes, “let’s remember that our pre-pandemic ‘normal’ was far from perfect, and hold onto this additional level of compassion and grace we’ve extended to students during this challenging year.”
