Oh, a mic would be a good idea! If we're going to continue distance learning after this semester I definitely might ask admin for one.

I'm also not allowed to have fridges or microwaves or coffee pots or I'd just put one in my room. Unfortunately I'm dependent on the lounge's microwave.

I'm teaching distance learning and I just had admin comment (for the second time) that I'm adding Schwa sounds. Like /p/ versus /puh/.

Ring camera is a good idea! I think I might be asking for help with that from my parents this Christmas (I'm still young enough to get gifts LOL ). I currently have no security system.

I so so agree. Fall is also my favorite time of year in the classroom because there's so many fun things to do and talk about. This year sucks. I'm streamlining education to make sure that my kids...
