Today was not a very productive day. I woke up about 7:30. A nice 9 hours of sleep. I did what I was hoping I wouldn’t do…sat in front of the tv. After listening to about 2 hours of Covid-19 updates and an increase in stress, I changed over to a marathon of Friends episodes. I need to be more productive tomorrow and get working on some of those house chores I had planned.
We got the email that we will be moving to Connected Learning. Not sure what that is and what that means for me as a teacher. I know many are currently doing distance learning. The unknown and how it will all play out causes me undue stress. The whole situation is just so unreal. I am wondering how I will manage my online classroom and keep my high schooler on task with their work. All you out there who are currently in the midst of this type of teaching, please send me your tips and tools.
I am hoping this will not become the new normal but I fear it might.
