This chapter begins by presenting Xavier Educational Academy (XEA) and its mission, vision, and practices before the lockdown. It continues by sharing the challenges that Richard and his community faced once in lockdown and the steps they took to create a community of care and belonging as they thought and worked together regarding finances; teaching; relationships with parents, teachers, and students; evaluations; and the preparation for the new school year. A very important component of our values at Xavier is the understanding of a relational approach to learning based on many of the underlying tenets of collaborative-dialogic practices. Graduation would be one of these challenging moments that provided the Xavier community an opportunity to think and create together. Teaching online via Zoom was one way in which we successfully responded to the needs of our students.
