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 30th post in the series.
Monday (May 10)
In first period D-I came on the mic out when she entered Zoom and uttered a pleasant “good morning”; it changed the mood of not only our class, but my entire day. Out of no where, smack in the middle of 5th period, I picked up my laptop, sat next to one of my students in an adjacent room, and co-taught the class with him via Zoom.
Tuesday (May 11)
In 5th period we created a short story with each person typing one word in the chat. It was full improv and hilarious; it was about a Cheeto failing off a bed that was eaten by Shrek who thought it tasted like rainbows.
Wednesday (May 12)
It wasn’t until the end of first period that I realized we don’t have school tomorrow; for the rest of the day I felt like I had superpowers. Did another one-word story in 5th period; I had some fun 9th period with a random ant named Louie.
Thursday (May 13)
No classes — Eid
Friday (May 14)
My cogen and I have been planning an end-of-year math olympics for a few weeks now. Today we spoke about which events (games) there will be; it’s exciting to think about the year in a positive way.
