For each school day of the 2020-21 school year, I will be writing two sentences to capture some of the impressions, feelings, experiences, or thoughts I had that day. This is the second post in the series.
Teachers teaching students in empty classrooms throughout the school. By far the strangest first day of school — EVER.
My periods feel rushed, my throat is killing me. A heated RSJ meeting after school leaves me absolutely depleted.
Today feels like it should be Saturday. Responding to the students’ virtual name tents is somehow keeping me grounded.
Feeling isolated in both body and spirit. I have no idea who I’m teaching; the future seems bleak.
Put together a binder with half-page “portfolios” of students; this lifted my mood for the week. I end the week feeling somber, so unsure about everything.
