True Blue Helping Hands was created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on education. Many parents and caregivers have taken on the role of teacher and “home educators.” As professional educators, it is our responsibility to bridge the knowledge gap and turn crisis teaching into best practice teaching through authentic, engaging experiences that help teachers and caregivers meet this new challenge head on.
