It’s getting pretty wobbly around here these days.
Where’s the balance?
Where’s the balance between maintaining high and consistent standards for us all… and being tasked with offering optional opportunities for my students?
Where’s the balance between giving enough meaningful personal feedback to each student to excite and motivate them to keep going… and stepping away from the computer for more than half an hour each day?
Where’s the balance between needing and wanting to meet each student’s individual academic needs… and making sure their hearts and home lives are as safe as possible (or as much as I can realistically influence those pieces)?
Where’s the balance between getting all of my videos recorded and all of my students’ videos responded to… and being done with my school day before 8:30pm?
I know it’s only week 2. I’ve heard horror stories of week 3.
I need to find some balance because what I’ve got going on now…
is not sustainable.
