In lieu of an abstract, here is the article's first paragraph:

In the era of COVID-19, difficult adjustments have been made. The world of education is very different. Many of us aren’t able to see our students every day. We monitor student progress and growth but worry that we are not doing enough. We are unable to give morning hugs and high fives. We can’t always be there to listen and comfort the way we used to do. As educators, though, we are problem solvers. We did not create this crisis, but we continue to figure out ways to make this challenge work the best we can. Neuroscience can help us do that.
