THOUGHTS FROM THE FRONT LINE
April 10 at 7:59 AM ·My heart broke yesterday finding out I won’t be able to continue learning in this space with my students this year.
My heart breaks thinking about this room that is sitting silent and dark. This room is usually loud and full of smiling faces. I miss the hugs, the big smiles, the curious questions, and the light bulb moments. I even miss never sitting down and hearing my name 1,000 times a day (Who knew I’d miss that ??♀️) I mean seriously, I even miss only being able to use the restroom at 11:28 and 1:45!
I always encourage my students to find the good in situations and practice positive self talk. Now is my turn to practice what I preach…
️I’m angry we won’t finish learning together…I’m thankful for the time we had learning and know we can continue to learn online (Thank you Zoom)!
️I’m angry I can’t hug my sweet students…I’m thankful for parents who will hug their kiddos a little tighter for me because I know their hearts are hurting.
️I’m worried about the nutritional needs and mental health of some of my students…I’m thankful Park Hill is continuing to provide nutritional services and Zoom allows me to see kiddos face to face to check in.
️I miss my Line Creek Team and how well we work together. We check on each other 10 times a day by “popping” in to say hi…I’m thankful for FaceTime, Zoom, and group messaging. We are checking on each other in a different spaces.
️I hate this whole situation…I’m thankful for our time together and I can promise you I won’t take for granted our learning environment next year
Room 215 I love you and I miss you! We got this!
