I survived week 3 of online teaching and our “stay at home” order here in Ohio. The weather was nice this week, so I spent a little time outside (but not a lot-my allergies are wretched right now).
I had another job interview this week. It was via zoom. It’s for a reading specialist position which would be pretty cool. I’m not gonna lie, having had several 1st and second round interviews and still not having a job is kind of beating down my self esteem. I mean, what am I doing wrong???? I have 2 more interviews on Monday, so send good vibes and prayers please!
Teaching from home has presented some unique challenges and I have found I am working more hours than I did when I was in a physical building! Where I used to be able to sit down and explain something to a students, I’m now having to zoom or make videos and that is a lot more time consuming that I expected! Plus, my students have 7 different classes a day, so I’m helping with 7 different contents! It’s a tad overwhelming. It put a lot of stress on my department members this week and we had a view zoom sessions to vent.
How are you doing with the pandemic and the various stay at home orders? Are you an essential worker? Working from home? Laid off because your place of employment isn’t open? I can’t imagine not having a paycheck during this crazy time on top of everything else!
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
