    Thanks for thinking of your readers. To be totally honest, this is a time of a roller coaster of emotions. I’m glad that I am allowed, as a substitute teacher, to collect unemployment, plus the guaranteed $600.00 Federal bonus every two weeks. Quite frankly, I’d rather work, even though I’d be paid less. My school kids (Pre-K through HS) are very important to me. I worked every day somewhere. In my state, the State Board of Education has proclaimed that kids won’t be graded for their online work. In San Diego, one teacher was quoted as saying that two-thirds of her kids in her 3rd and 4th grade class didn’t even bother to show up for their online classes. In Chicago, special needs kids (i. e. physically/mentally disabled and behavior-disordered kids) have been set adrift by the state. Their one-on-one paraprofessionals aren’t allowed to help them at home. It’s illegal. One parent said her autistic son’s online class was shut down by his teacher because he was the only one who came online. Didn’t he deserve to be taught?

    Meanwhile, states that have no or less-restrictive stay-at-home orders are experiencing nearly zero per capita instances of Covid and single and double-digit death tolls. It’s really tough out there and the states that are least restrictive have the lowest numbers of sick and dead residents. Interesting facts. (source: CNN)

    Thanks for letting me blow off a little steam.
