I recently watched an episode of the Netflix show Cheer – S2:E6. In this episode, the students were discussing the impact that COVID has had on their college experience. It made me reflect on my own university experience – it was entirely MADE by the in-person interactions. Are we doing our students a disservice by dismissing these feelings of grief for an experience they’ve never had?
Looking for some ways to spice up your classroom activities? Look no further! Here I have compiled a list of all the fun, fabulous, and wacky ‘celebration days’ that are completely unrelated to any of the standard holidays.
The year is 2022. We’ve rolled around to another International Women’s Day. While most corporations and companies will put out words of gratitude and celebration, I feel like this year it’s going to miss the mark.
I’ve spent a lot of time treading carefully around social media lately, and the mood has shifted. Because women this year don’t want to be celebrated. We want to be ok. And we’re not ok.
The world is getting crazier by the day.
Just when we feel like we’re getting a handle on the pandemic, perhaps even coming out the other side of it, Russia goes and invades Ukraine.
Our students are going to be hurting in so many different ways.
You have your student-kids, and now you’re thinking about having your own biological-kids. But when?
When you or your partner falls pregnant with your own child, your whole teaching dynamic will shift. So how and when do you announce your pregnancy to your school and your students?
I never really considered if and how becoming a parent would change my perception of teaching.
When the illness of your own children impacts your teaching, how do you cope?
