My two cents (Week of Nov 30, 2020)

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 11th post in the series.

Monday (Nov 30)
I felt unexpectedly relaxed all day; I found myself speaking slower than normal — I was more controlled, more calculated. Referencing James Baldwin and Begin Again at the RSJ meeting after school felt vindicating and hopeful.

Tuesday (Dec 1)
I shaved my head in 5th period. That was random and fun.

Wednesday (Dec 2)
Shaving my head while teaching has officially become a routine for my 5th period class. It was democratic, we voted.

Thursday (Dec 3)
My collection of virtual handshakes (call and response) is growing and it’s getting fun. I now have eight — and counting.

Friday (Dec 4)
Worked all day in an empty classroom. Added a new member of my cogen and discussed a way of increasing engagement in breakouts.
