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 seventh post in the series.
A day full of annoying highs and lows. I was forced to change rooms out of no where and fielded complaints from students about my error-analysis quizzes.
Back to teaching from my bedroom for a day. The only highlight was getting to share my kids with my students.
Anxiously refreshing both the CNN a NY Times homepages frequently throughout the day. At a loss for for motivation, I did pushups in 9th period after a student gave a thoughtful response to question.
I was finally brave enough to announce and begin the Token of Appreciation today. It may backfire, but this year the token will be a piece of paper that is mailed to each other.
The cogen strikes again, this time with another member. Had a good departmental meeting today; I see a “problems of practice” distributed facilitation model that I really like.
