But they can still send you messages even though you show as offline. It’s odd. But, they won’t be able to tell that you are online.

Zoom Tip: Give out your zoom code to students RIGHT BEFORE the class starts to avoid zoom bombers (when students give out the code to strangers). Also, make sure the default is set on the waiting room so you have to approve all participants. I learned the hard way.

I think I smile and nod too much. How do I stop? I don’t want to smile all the time but it’s like I’ve been conditioned over time. It honestly is draining. Especially on zoom I can see myself and in my head I’m like wow I am a wreck smiling and nodding vigorously at the most inane things.
