Feeling a sense of limbo around back-to-school? You’re not alone! With so much uncertainty in the air, parents of school-aged children are getting more creative than ever, faced with “reimagining education” so our kids don’t feel a sense of limbo, too.

Though one would think we’ve had time enough to get into a sort of routine or groove by now, most of the people I’ve talked to still feel less than motivated and have fallen into a creative rut.
