That educators confront mental health problems amid a pandemic is something DepEd must recognize. Educators’ mental health problem is real.
It is our problem. The government, not just DepEd, must help us. But even if the government can’t (they are overwhelmed), we must.
I have anxieties.
I swim in uncertainties these days.
Mondays became Mondays without notice.
But I must bounce forward and control what I can.
Every teacher needs help. The strong must help others who are weak. The weak can become strong when they pay attention to helping others.
Educators are not ready. No one is. But we have to bounce for our sake and the sake of our children. We must find ways and use what we have to get where we want to be.
