It’s a tough time to be in K-12 education. Educators are dealing with crushing staffing shortages, shifting COVID-19 protocols, and challenges to the curriculum, sometimes all before they’ve had their first sip of coffee.
Yet on February 14, thousands of teachers will welcome students to school with a smile (though it might be hidden under a mask) and an emphatic, “Happy Valentine’s Day!” And why not fight weariness with some warm fuzzies and chocolate?
At Education Week, we’re embracing this holiday, and sharing a little love — and snark — with the K-12 community in the form of valentines. We hope you enjoy these. (We had fun making them.)
