My two cents (Week of Dec 21, 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 14th post in the series.

Monday (Dec 21)
My crusade for student engagement resulted in many minutes of silence today in both 1st and 9th periods. I get frustrated as hell, but, right now, who can blame them for wanting to hide in the shadows of vulnerability and learning?

Tuesday (Dec 22)
I don’t know if my Future Educator Club students know it or not, but I have no idea what I’m doing with them. I’m gasping for air…hoping to find something meaningful to do with them.

Wednesday (Dec 23)
The day opened with excitement as I played the zoom version of my mystery prize game and some students in two classes turned on their cameras to display unexpected ‘Thank You’ messages; the day ended in frustration as I drowned in a pool silence during 9th period. My co-taught 7th period class gracefully and joyfully shared their math haiku.
