Slice of Life 2020 Day 25: I promise I’m working!

“What are you doing?,” My mom came into my makeshift office/classroom/workout-space and asked. 

“I’m working,” I told her. She looked perplexed-rightfully so. She probably heard my giggles from her office and now that she could see me, she probably saw my tear-filled eyes. 

Yesterday, I had asked our LAC what I could to help her as our curriculum coaches prepare for phase two of our distance learning plan. She asked if I could watch some short Pixar films for literary skills and grade-level appropriateness. So, yes, I really I was working.

“I promise I’m working,” I said as I smiled. I explained what I was working on. “Come watch this next one with me,” I told her. 

We sat and watched, laughed, and cried. I think it gave us a whole lot of hope and perspective, too. I can’t wait to see how this looks for our students.

  1. Learning SHOULD be fun! I am excited for your students but what got me most was the moment shared with your mom. Priceless. A great gift in the midst of the whole drama.
