Hey y’all! It’s Ty, and I am back for more on the TEP blog. Today I am coming at you live from quarantine in Pittsfield, Massachusetts during peak social distancing. Today I have scoured School Spring, applied to a few other miscellaneous jobs, completed my weekly Moodle post, and began working on my dilemma for Practicum. But you do not want to hear about that boring stuff!
Although March tends to be a long month, we have been unexpectedly released from the confines of the classroom due to this coronavirus pandemic. I miss Ms. Perkins and the students dearly, but there is still much to do remotely! Aside from searching for remote learning opportunities for the seventh graders, the weather is getting better and we are finally seeing some sun! Yes massholes, SUN – Tom Brady did not take it to Tampa with him…tomorrow will come.
Just this past weekend, my family celebrated two birthdays. My grandmother, GJ, turned 77 on Saturday. She currently lives in Naples, Florida with my grandfather and a hodge podge of their elderly friends.
Well we were glad we were able to FaceTime in, we miss them all dearly, and told them to send more of that sunshine up north!
My sister, Taea, celebrated her birthday on Friday. The big One-Eight! She is still deciding where to go to college in the fall, but with all that is going on in the world now, she has been given a little extra time to decide. More recently, her basketball team had their season cut short, but they were still named Co-State Champions! Although her softball season is now in jeopardy, I was so proud to see her accomplish this feat after the backlash she has suffered from transferring schools. My mom made an ice cream cake and we ordered in from a local Italian restaurant.
I have come across a few math educational websites I think will be useful, but I am still waiting on a Worcester Public School email address in hopes I can upload some links myself. If anyone out there wants to check out Prodigy and Splash Learn for me, those are the only two I have not finished going through yet.
That is all from me on Tuesday! Tune back in for tomorrow, as I break out of social isolation and visit my girlfriend for a special surprise!
