Starting Tomorrow

Well, tomorrow is going to be interesting. It's the first day of school and we are doing virtual learning. Many of my parents are in a panic because the laptops that were handed out are not working. I have fielded questions from my parents all day. I gave out the Help Desk phone number to them and turned my phone off about an hour ago. I cannot handle this, my co-workers are struggling using the virtual program and we have not been given much guidance from the district.

I guess I should state that I teach K and many of my students don't speak English. I've been using Google Translate to trouble shoot their problems. I see a major disaster coming tomorrow.

Do your best

I'm so sorry this is happening to you and your students/families. I wish you luck tomorrow.

My best advice is to just do your best. That's all you can do. Be flexible, compassionate, merciful, helpful, and accommodating to families and students, which I'm sure you will be. That's all you can do.

This is a tragic situation for both you, your students and families. I hope all of the problems get sorted out and that the school day eventually runs smoothly very soon.

I will be thinking of you! If you have the ability, please let us know how it goes after the first few days. I'm still in denial that it's even possible to teach kindergarten online...
