    Hello Amy! John’s cousin, Michele, here. Loved the podcast today with your sister! I’m a teacher, Montessori 3-6 yo children, in a public charter in Dallas. So much to think about now! Little ones need a lot of close contact and it will be a challenge keeping them physically distance from me and others but looking forward to the time we can get back in the classroom!

      Hi Michele! It’s all so confusing and heartbreaking for students and teachers! Thank you for listening–and for caring and loving those little ones!! That is what they will need most.?
