Presents

A student made this for me a long time ago.

I mentioned that I love to roller skate. I don’t even remember telling my students that about myself. Teaching is demanding and the parts that I don’t enjoy: “paperwork/grading,” meetings, and (now) wearing a mask while talking all day and handling parent frustrations with online work…are growing.

We just went on break. I intend to refresh. Reflect. Re-energize. I love my job. I have the rest of the year to be better.

Coping and Thriving

These will keep you out of trouble.

4 days to Election Day. Covid is rising (again). Civil Rights protests are simmering. Lots of stressors out there, but keep your nose to the grindstone. Regulate for positive input and positive output will follow. I’m watching comedies, listening to mellow music (Jack Johnson, Johnny Nash, Alexi Murdoch) and taking in affirming podcasts (Marie Forleo is a great one)!
