Getting Ready for School

Friday, July 31, 2020

Well this is my last weekend before I report back to the classroom. Yes that is what I said!!! Next week we are to report back to school to get ready and learn all the new things required of us before the students return on August 26th. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

We have no idea what this will look like but we need to get ready and try to wrap our brains around what this will look like. As of now they have tow choices - in classroom or streaming live during school time. So will find out next week my class size, and how many will be at home. I do know that partitions have been ordered for the tables, mask must be worn, temperatures will be checked everyday, etc. etc. --

I am really not looking forward to this year but I will give it my all!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon I do miss the kids but try teaching 2nd graders in normal times is a challenge now add to that the mask and all the other requirements - should be fun!! emoticon emoticon

My sons are not to happy that I am returning to the classroom - so i also have to deal with that and I do understand their concerns - but really I need to get out of the house for awhile!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Well will see how this goes and see if I can make it through the whole school year!!!
However as Dr. Seuss says:

So let’s do this!!

    I love Dr. Seuss's poster! Bruni, this is such a huge undertaking. I am so proud of you for giving it your all. Be sure to be good to yourself and know that no matter the outcome you are doing your best. emoticon

    Very tough Bruni. Honestly, I would not want to be in your shoes...

    Best wishes for a Wonderful school year, my friend. I know this year will be very challenging but you are up for a challenge. I understand your family's concern... but I also understand the need to get out of the house. Just do the best you can to take care of yourself as you take care of your students. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I go back the 10th and kids arrive the 17th. I teach middle & high school, but I still have the same mask related concerns. Our elementary (below 4th grade - under 10 years old per statewide mask order) will be allowed to remove masks in classrooms but staff and older students will be required to keep them on. I'm pretty sure the teenagers are going to be just as challenging as the younger kids. It's hard to be excited about this school year for sure.

    Schools will open in Ontario ... but many parents are skeptical. I sm anxious to see how this plays out. Many precautions but so tough on the littlest ones.

    Cute quote. I was wondering if Florida would have in-class learning this fall. Our Governor just announced yesterday that he has set up a guideline for districts depending on how many cases of Covid per 10,000 people (or maybe 100,000). So the city schools will definitely be starting out with distance learning. Only some of the country districts will be able to have classroom learning.

    Good luck. It's kind of a double edge sword - wanting to get out vs wanting to be safe. And I'm finding that the less I go anywhere the less I want to go! Probably not the best.

    Love the Dr Seuss quote. How appropriate for right now.

    I can understand the need for the kids to be back in school but I sure understand all the concerns associated with the decision. I am sure it will be a learning curve for everyone.

    Good luck!!!

    As a retired elementary education teacher, I fully understand the situation you face.
