Thoughts From My Garage

Written by Ramsey Khasho, PsyD

It’s our eleventh day of “shelter-in-place.”

I’m working remotely from my garage, a makeshift office comprised of a dining room chair, portable folding table and a laptop. My wife, who is not a teacher, is in the house helping our three kids “distance learn,” trying to get them to focus on fractions and word problems. View post

thoughts from my garage

Mental health is more important than ever.

Don't delay in times of uncertainty.
