Dear Educators,

Navigating through this year has tested all of us. The challenges have been extreme, and seemingly never ending! I think it’s important to acknowledge our wins along the way—not just our own, but those of our students too. When we feel stressed and challenged, we need to take a moment to pause and congratulate ourselves for the little things we have achieved. While our Zoom lesson might have gone awry, a year ago we might never have taught a Zoom lesson at all! While our students might not be performing academically to their normal standards, they’ve never learned through a pandemic before!

Perfection might not be attainable, but if we focus on our successes along the way, we can build from them.

Our GNN article this week focuses on NASA’s successful landing of a spacecraft on an asteroid! A great success for NASA! What have been your great successes this week? This month? This year?

As always, we’re in awe of the great work educators are doing across the country, and we hope you’re in awe of yourself too!

Geography News Network

News about asteroids is typically a bit stressful! Either they might hit us, or we just got missed by one! This time, however, we got to it before it got to us!

It’s incredible to comprehend what it took to get a spacecraft on an asteroid. We hope your students enjoy this K-12 friendly article about the Bennu asteroid and other asteroids of note!

Why You Should Always Acknowledge Achievements

We tend to have reverence for people who hold themselves to high standards, and most of us strive to uphold our own high standards also. The only concern with this mindset is the trap of perfectionism. If you’re always looking for how you could be better, you might miss how great you already are!

Why bother talking time to acknowledge our achievements? Find out why in this fantastic article!
