The end 2020 is almost here. It has been a long one for most of us. Take some time this week to relax, reflect, and recharge. Here’s how I plan to do it.
Drink coffee in a real mug instead of a travel mug this week. Watch an extra episode of a favorite sitcom this week (btw, The Office is leaving Netflix this week). Teaching my kids how to ski. Sitting outside and watching the sunset (this was my view of the sunset this evening).
I’m going to try to find some moments to think about what did go well this year and brainstorm ideas to keep those good things going.
If you told me at this time last year that I’d be simultaneously teaching in-person and online students, I’d have said that’s crazy. I still think it’s a crazy and flawed idea after doing it for most of the fall. That said, it’s the model my school is using so I’m making the best of it. I’ll be recharging for the second half of the year by doing some reading and brainstorming of new strategies to make hybrid instruction a better experience for me and my students.
My Most Popular Newsletters of the Year
Usually this newsletter features the most popular posts of the week from my FreeTech4Teachers.com blog. Instead of sharing that list, this week I’m sharing the seven most popular newsletters that I wrote this year. Here they are:
Here’s to hoping 2021 is better for all of us!
