Educating in the Era of COVID-19: Ending a School Year

The daily cycle of online learning has become the most cyclical cycle. Initially, I thought it would bring unique challenges I could document. Instead, as one of my friends call it, everyday is ‘Blursday’.

So, instead, as specific matters related to online education arise—and they will—I’ll blog about them. But this will be the last entry from the ‘dear diary’ approach.

On Facebook our school has been posting picture of the lawn signs we’ve dropped off to our graduates. Of course, they seem to be social distancing appropriately as they do this. It’s fun to see their pictures but sad to have to end their senior year this way.

Usually I take a class selfie on the last day of instruction. I’ve done it every semester since I started teaching. Then I shake each student’s hand and thank them for studying with me. There won’t be any selfies or handshakes this year. Ugh.

Anyway, we’re all doing our best. Let’s continue to do so. Next week is our school year comes to an end. But don’t worry, summer school starts June 1st…online.
