E is for:
Those of you that have been with me for
awhile probably guessed E for education.
It is my jam as the saying goes.
I have been in the field for over 30 years!
From Preschool, Pre-K, Early Childhood
Special Ed to Elementary Special Ed.
The end of last year and this year have
been some of the toughest times. Never in
my life would I have expected to teach from
home! Thankfully this school year, remote
happened three times due to weather but
other than that we have been face to face
since we started back in the Fall.
I have been so impressed with our kids
dealing with all the different changes.
Wearing masks for 7 hrs a day minus
eating and drinking. They do a great job
keeping them with reminders sometimes.
The masks are very hard to teach in but we
have plugged right along. Another change
for us was that our whole dept was moved
to a new building in the middle of a pandemic,
so learning a new building and staff complete
with masks on has been a ride.
Hoping for a "normal" year next year, but we'll
see what plays out.
If know a teacher, pat them on the back. It has
not been easy at all! (Not digging for complements
F is up next.
