After the tragic hurricane that impacted Texas and Louisiana, we’ve seen teachers and educators throughout the T2T community reaching out to share resources and words of comfort for school communities directly affected by this disaster.

Educators created these resources:

Teacher Carol Salva shared how she plans to teach newcomers and refugees after the hurricane.

Educator Joe Marquez shared a Flipgrid link so staff and students can show support and love for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Principals are helping one another with this Google spreadsheet. They’re using it to match their schools with ones in the affected areas that need help.

Educators shared these resources for helping students and families:
