I’ve had to stop teaching. My family held an intervention. My daughters were crying. My sons looked stern. With a problematic medical history, they were concerned about the lack of a mask mandate and uncertainty about who was vaccinated, so they insisted that I quit. They don’t like me saying that they bullied me, and really, they didn’t . I consider it being showered by concerned love. So I’ll ed tech and give PD lessons to teachers from my home.
I’m going to turn over existing materials to another. But of course, after 19 years of teaching the course I can’t really turn over everything in my head. I had plans to update my materials, as it’s an ongoing process. I will try to do that, anyway, and if somehow my materials can be of help to someone, well, that’s what I want.
So bye, bye, teaching.
