As we begin week four of our social distancing and homebound learning, it is time to take stock of where we are. I feel I am a little more comfortable with this online classroom. I have a way to go, but I don’t feel so frustrated. Most of my students, and hopefully their parents, have reached a zone of comfort. I wish I could say that all of us are totally at ease, but that would not be true.
