Re: The Relentless School Nurse: Sesame Street in Communities & the Circle of Care

Thank you, Robin - always the champion! This is so timely, especially with all that has happened to undermine children's sense of safety. This really resonated with me: " There is something comforting about watching Big Bird, Elmo and friends talk about “Big Feelings” during these complex times." . Thanks Robin!
