I went into the school building with students for the first time in 17 months and 18 days. That’s how long it has been since I taught school while physically in the building. And the last time I taught kids in a building, I was in a completely different school.
I’m super excited. I’m meeting all of these kids who I never saw (because they hid their faces on Zoom)! It’s WILD. Today I heard, “You’re SO SHORT, Miss!” a million times. “Yes. Yes I am.” But the truth is that, while some of them are HELLA tall. Most of my 10th graders are short themselves.
Onward and upward! Day 2 tomorrow. Let’s learn some American Literature. Whee!
