“I am very happy not teaching online [this year]. Getting kids to work [is struggling], they didn’t do anything. I still see myself doing a lot at home in the evenings and in the weekends. I think my technology issues have gotten better, I’m better at handling them. I still struggle with Canvas sometimes, I’ve gotten better at it, but there are still some hiccups every once in a while. Making sure everything’s available for students to see and make sure tests are imported correctly and making sure things are being graded correctly for me, averaging the grades. [The freshmen] are not paying more attention, that’s a problem with them coming from the middle school. They don’t understand deadlines, they’re not willing to work, they’re just expected to be passed on to the next level. I think [the pandemic is] part of it, my freshman were in 7th grade when the pandemic happened so they missed that last few weeks of 7th grade, then in 8th grade, they were at home, then they were at school for a little bit, or not at school at all, that has just been a huge problem. Do I let myself down, yea. I know I can do things better but I just get exhausted and it’s just not teaching, the things that happen in the building.”
