It has been difficult to get back into teaching. We have been teaching face to face since August but with all different kinds of ‘rules’ in place. It has really tested me to find the love of teaching. Now for those of you who are still remote or hybrid teaching…you my friend, most likely need to dig a little deeper to find that love. Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love teaching but this year has made me realize how much we took for granted. For example, seeing our student’s whole faces, hearing their soft whispers or noise making, and knowing who actually made the sound instead of looking at a see of eyes and wondering where it came from because everyone is muffled under a mask. It’s time to find a new grove, realize that this isn’t going away as soon as we had hoped and that the love of teaching is still possible.
