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 13th post in the series.
Monday (Dec 14)
In a bout with Zoom fatigue, I’m discovering the utility and refreshing nature of dialing into zoom sessions with my phone. It essentially turns zoom into a phone call and, in stepping away from my screen (yay!), enables me to shut up and listen more.
Tuesday (Dec 15)
Stumbled upon a fun thing in 8th period: if I get a 100% response rate on the poll for any given day, I must run into my front room or kitchen (whichever comes first), grab the first edible thing I see, and bring it back to the computer to eat it on camera. Today it was turkey from the deli.
Wednesday (Dec 16)
Had a one-on-one with my AP for the first time in over a month. Had a pointed discussion Not So Nice Black Parents episode from the 8 Black Hands podcast in the Continuing the Conversation group after school (I basically listened to the group).
Thursday (Dec 17)
Used Desmos to do a group quiz in class which I really liked; I may turn it into a routine. I nervously and purposefully gave my MT2 talk in the evening.
Friday (Dec 18)
Only 1/2 of my cogen showed up today for our conversation, which was disappointing. The second faculty-wide RSJ session went well; we began to formerly address White Supremacy Culture at our school and a math colleague, Lo, stepped up in a big way.
