Hurricane Ian was a significant event for a lot of people. Millions of people were affected by the storm. Unfortunately, many lives were lost.

As adults, we face many obstacles and challenges every day of our lives. Therefore, we realize that we must be the solution to the problems we face.

Dealing with issues every day makes adults numb to the challenges they face. But unfortunately, it is not the same for kids who sometimes feel helpless when problems come into their lives. Unfortunately, children often have trouble processing the things they should not have been exposed to at an early age.

On the first day back to school, October 4, 2022, I conducted an exercise that allowed the scholars in my class to talk about the experiences they faced.

Our bell work exercise was simply a wellness check for those who have and are still experiencing the aftermath of hurricane Ian.

I hope their story shows you that no matter what obstacles you will face in your life, you can and will survive them if you're willing to keep fighting!

I am still standing... Surviving Hurricane Ian
