I was going to create a self-wellness area for myself-drawer with my goodies only in it-journal, bible, lotion, water bottle, fancy pens, paper to write positive notes to students or co-workers, heating pad, chocolate, a fun book to read so even if I take 10 minutes for myself I have everything I need!

I decorated my classroom in a beach and flip flop theme. I painted one wall lime green and the others grey. On one wall I hung photos of my family and friends and vacation pictures. I titled it This Is Us! I allow my students to bring in their pictures to hang on the same wall. I’m going to add some string lights too.

Is it okay to wear an N95 mask now?? I know at the beginning all N95s we’re supposed to go to medical personnel, but I recently was given a new one from a friend and want to know if it’s acceptable to wear it, or if I should stick to my cloth mask. Note: don’t comment saying “you don’t need a mask”. I WILL wear my mask outside to keep others and myself safe; I’m just wondering if it’s socially acceptable to start wearing N95s if you have one.

It's been said by mgmt that they will be more transparent with employees going forward, but the way they handled reviews/raises/promotions this year was cowardly. Thank god Fishbowl keeps us informed.
