Consider this an entry into my COVID -19 journal for the last two days.
This is the fucking truth right here. Pulled an 18 hour day a few days ago helping parents and students get online AND other local teachers who never had never done Skype lessons before. I end every day exhausted anymore. And there’s still a lot of work to do, a lot of people to help.
For all those folks who give teachers shade, or see the teacher badge at NAMM and act like we’re invisible (and no, thankfully not everyone or every manufacturer does this, but there are some folks who act like this)…here we are, the teachers pulling together, helping each other get online, connecting students, still working very hard developing resources and infrastructure, and getting some *serious* shit done as a crisis hits.
