Dear CoE Colleagues,
As we enter the second week of delivering all of our courses and working remotely, I am in awe of the commitment, flexibility, innovation and can-do spirit that everyone is demonstrating.
Classes are meeting, students are learning, advisement is happening, meetings are taking place, forms are being processed, calls are being answered, and we are demonstrating that the adage, “Huskies never quit” definitely applies to the College of Education.
While I miss seeing you, our students, and other members of the NIU community, I must admit I have found a few unexpected benefits to working in my den. The commute takes less than a minute each day, I don’t have to pack my lunch, yoga pants are perfectly acceptable work attire, and through Teams meetings, phone calls and emails, I am still able to do my work and stay connected.
Please stay safe and healthy. I hope you are finding at least a few unexpected benefits to Illinois’ Stay-at-Home order.
