Schoolbelt Story (part 1) -The Light at the End of a Tunnel

Life altering events can often impact our destiny in unexpected ways. Prior to March of 2020, the idea of entrepreneurship was hardly a thought for a teacher, volunteer, and busy mother of four. When the COVID 19 pandemic closed schools in March, my world was turned upside down, and like most educators, I had a difficult time dealing with the separation from my students and the sudden halt of a busy life. Transitioning from an outgoing, productive lifestyle to social distancing at home was an emotional struggle, and I needed an outlet with a purpose. I decided to focus my time and energy on brighter days ahead, and the light at the end of this pandemic tunnel. I made the decision to pour my energy into a product invention that was always in the back of my racing mind - one that could positively impact my workday and students upon returning to the classroom.
