I’m set to got back to the classroom tomorrow. I do it because I believe what we do is important and we’ve proven over the past year that we can make anything work. No, we aren’t returning to “normal.” In case you were too busy to notice, “normal” wasn’t working before this pandemic and our return to the classroom is a sign of our professionalism and commitment, despite the foolishness of changing schooling yet again with minimal preparations or testing of the viability of this change.
There is no returning to whatever was before. We move forward. We are making the future. And unless you are working with us, you can kindly STFU and get out of the way. You don’t know this life and what costs us to do what we do. So either join us or get out of the way!
