Reflections and Takeaways Special Edition | Page 45

As a middle school student, during COVID there were many problems. We had to wear masks during summer. It was hard to breath. We had to learn at home with internet problems and families making noise. We had to social distance which means you have to stay apart.We could not see friends or families like we used to. Loved ones getting covid and dieing. We had to suffer with economic problems. We had news about deaths that gave us more pressure. We faced all of that in middle school, Imagine toddlers.

The positive side of this is that we could spend more time with family, get more creative. We could learn a new language or instrument. We could renovate our house. Get a pet. Learn new jobs. We could do all of that.

Middle school with covid was not the best. I had better years. I hope covid ends soon
