As many of us are entering our third week of quarantine because of the coronavirus, I want to check in with you and see how you are doing. I realize that many of you have been working at the speed of light to set up and deliver distance education to your students and you have not really had much free time.
On the other hand, some of you are in states that are not allowing distance education and you may find that you are having trouble filling the days.
I want to share a few ideas with you.
This is the perfect opportunity for you to freshen up your own skills, create new classroom activities and games, and plan great new lessons for your students.
These are all things we know we should be doing, but we never seem to have the time. So take advantage of the quarantine. I know it is tempting to spend the time binge-watching Tiger King, and by all means, do some binge-watching, but take some time to get yourself ready to return to work when all of this is over. You’ll be glad you did!
