Teacher Encouragement Thread!

 

I am a teacher, and I went back to work this week. I just finished five days of pre-planning, and our students come back on Monday, most in person.

Some school districts are going back in person (maybe with an option for online), some are going back all online, some are waiting. I feel safe saying the vast majority of teachers are at least somewhat concerned, and some are extremely stressed. Some are even leaving the profession.

The village I grew up in had a population of about 850 (not including livestock). It was a peaceful little place, nestled next to mountains, and far away from the hustle and bustle of any city. In winter, I played outside in the snow; in summer, I played outside on the lawn (or in the […]

There is one in particular about a group of college students discussing whether or not human sacrifice is acceptable. Yes, there is one college student whose reply to the question is, “Who are we […]

My father taught me one of the most valuable lessons of my life when I was a teenager. He was in his late 40s and had severe joint pain (we found out several years later he had an extremely rare disease). I was young and had moderate arthritis. On one particularly bad knee day, I […]

Old Ten Senseless (@10cents) started something called the 90-Day Challenge. We did at least two rounds of them in the past, and I plan to revive it starting September First to give us all a chance to get our Christmas and Hanukkuh projects finished before those days roll around. However, to do it properly will […]

’round about August 2014, a band of merry aquanuts started hanging out in this swimming hole. Our time here is geared to the encouragement of one another, not only in watery endeavors but in others that are good for the body, mind, and soul. Some of us swim regularly and we chart our yardage. Others […]
