How are you dealing with the disappointment of digital learning?

I know it's the safest for everyone, but I can't help but feel upset and disappointed. This is my favorite part of the year. I love decorating my classroom and getting ready to meet my new little...

Agree

Don't try to work around it or lie. They will know and it will look super bad.

I switched jobs mid year and I'm 90% positive my admin gave me a bad review. She didn't like me, I wasn't part of her...

Wow

I feel this so much. I'm also a K teacher and like you I am almost entirely play based. I do no assigned seats and my style of teaching is independent exploration with 'group meetings' for about 10...

Here's my thoughts

I think we'll be back in school by December at the latest.

I BARELY start teaching the writing process around that time. Here's how I teach the writing process (not letter writing/tracing)

That would be concerning to me too

There's so many reasons for why he could've been doing that. Impairment, age, possible mental issues. If my family member was acting like that, I'd be grateful to someone who called it in.

Most houses have two thermostats and and 2 HVACs for this reason, at least in my city. I have a pretty small house (1600sqft) and still have two.

Heat rises so my upstairs is always hotter than my...

I'm 23 and don't have a will. I'm worth a lot of house debt and the remainder of my meager paycheck if I die...I think my family would prefer if I just didn't have one.

That being said, I might...

I was thinking the same

My parents are in their 50s, and decently healthy (though overweight) and I frequently visit them. My dog LOVES them, their house, and their dog. I'm more worried about my dog being disappointed that...

Totally anecdotal

but when I have UTI's, I rarely get pain when peeing and typically just have to go constantly with some back pain. My mom, on the other hand, usually has stomach pain. So symptoms can definitely vary...

Do you like the state you live in?

Why or Why not? Or are you mixed?

Personally, I'm mixed. I don't like the aesthetics of my city or state (Las Vegas, NV). No trees, large city, no backyards, and I prefer a rural lifestyle. But on...
