Looping

31 Aug

The email came in the early afternoon on Thursday:

With the opening of the new middles school that would drain off many of our students, I’d been wondering which of my former students I would get to teach again this year. I checked Synergy right away. Nothing.

A follow-up email came:

I had to be patient. It was hard. At 3:30, I took Richard to the park to calm myself down. It was after 4 when we returned and I logged in. Up popped my classes and I scrolled through. I won’t deny it, I was excited and audibly reacted to seeing some of the faces. There were a few faces that made me chuckle in a different way. Those were students who might not be that excited about having me again. I am looking forward to working with them again – even if they think I was a little hard on them.

Schedules were released to students at the same time. A few hours later, I received this message from a student who had been at outdoor school with me in March 2020, when the whole world turned upside down:

I am excited to be back.
