So I just found out that each teacher at my school is getting $100 stipend to purchase covid-related supplies: masks, sanitizer, etc. $100 is not very much so I want to prioritize. Any ideas?

We're supposed to be social distancing/wearing masks when we teach, but using proximity and "the look" are 2 of my most effective strategies to redirect off-task students. What can I do?

In a time of uncertainty, stress, anxiety, and sadness, I want to reflect on things that make you happy. Tell me something you enjoy about your school. This could be a people, a space, an ideal, something that makes you happy when you think about your school and your job. Here’s mine: All summer a small group of teachers and administrations have been repainting the whole building and adding murals to spruce up the school. When we reopen we want the space to feel exciting and welcoming.
