The Back to School Life is here and in FULL SWING. I am teaching alone in my classroom, since the kids are staying home for virtual learning. Of course I have a much better camera/microphone/technology at home, and I'm attempting to stream live to a dozen people on a Chromebook. It is...going. At least the kids are patient when everything isn't going well. But it's weird sitting alone every day in a classroom. Online meeting is fine, but it does get lonely.
I work in a smaller building too, so if just one staff member gets COVID, we'll all be getting it. I'm a bit concerned that some of the protocols they've put in place do not stop transmission of the virus; their definition of "contact" if someone gets it is not scientifically based either. I'm really hoping the decisions of my school district doesn't kill me or one of my coworkers as it has these educators and others in different professions. That's why I am BEYOND angry with anti-mask, anti-science people. Those people are stupid.
In other life news, I'll be teaching a punch paper class at Costume On this weekend, as well as a class on how to do online research. If you're interested, I still have spots available in my workshop. It's looking like we'll have a good turnout. Also, I made this cool badge that is definitely not functional, but at the very least I used punch paper for the lettering. I feel a win here somewhere!
