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 third post in the series.
First period was a joke, but it wasn’t a terrible day. My kids aren’t learning any math, but at least we’re getting more comfortable with each other.
My first few “lessons” have been subpar. Realized that, while things are still going horribly, I’m feeling better about things this week; my binder is helping.
Gave the kids some individual work and did one-on-ones; some good, needed conversations. This was the first day with students in the building and my brain was all over the place; teaching with a mask on ain’t cool.
I was finally able to give Mathematical Voices to several of students from last year; that was special. Had a heavy talk with BD after school which reminded me that life is more than White privilege.
