I used to complain about having the kind of job that didn't allow for teleworking.
Well, here I am at the end of week 2 of online teaching so I guess I do have the kind of job for teleworking.
In this new reality, I find structure works best. Every workday I wake at 7:30 and jump right in the shower. What a bonus to sleep two and a half hours more than I was just fourteen days ago. By 8:00 am I'm in my "office" checking on what work my students have completed overnight.
As the day wears on I respond to students who have questions about assignments and due dates.
3:00 pm signals the official end to my workday.
I'm hopeful that we will all be back in the classroom when the new school year starts because, even though we can make do for now, teleworking and teaching aren't the perfect match.
