It was a short week, a teacher workshop day, our internet was flaky, our student information system was even flakier, some of it could be attributed to the newness of it. For me, it didn't help I worked in the 09-10 school year for a day! Thankfully, our data chief figured it out and now I have student access.
Amazingly, resilient students sat and listened, engaged and participated during the heat and humidity. All a tribute to the social nature of their beings and the learning situations that face to face school puts all of us in.
We have all tested the waters, we will be back next week and we will begin to find the balance of learning, social networking, connections and collaboration in this journey called high school.
