Samantha Spencer, digital media teacher at Sullivan High School, has started a video blog to communicate with students and emotionally navigate this challenging time. “They are helping to give me a sense of purpose and helping me to not sit in my anxieties :)” she writes.

We appreciate Samantha’s bravery and selflessness in sharing her vulnerability, and invite all members to contribute their own words, videos, poems, art, playlists…whatever you’re comfortable with, to stay connected to your colleagues and school communities. In this time, just as in strike time, we must maintain our sense of CTU family, and be stronger together. For more info, or if you’d like to contribute, please let us know at
