Day 1 of who knows how many. I’m one of those “scabs” who went to school. The argument I can make for myself is that I’m just here to help others but starting tomorrow I’ll have to do that from home. It doesn’t make any sense to go to crowded places but our Department of Education needs some more time to get to that conclusion. At least that’s how it seems. I’m the English Department head at our school and we have a meeting scheduled for 13:30. Hopefully the last meeting, we need to set some guidelines, everyone who can work from home has to do that. It just doesn’t make any sense to do it any other way. Let’s just hope that the people in charge agree.
I know that everyone is either overwhelmed or our out of one’s depth…or both. Admitting it is the first step, there’s no shame it it. Count me in for both of those conditions. But I firmly believe that we can get through this. One step at time. Do your part, if you can work from home, it’s the responsible thing to do.
Don’t “scab” and stay healthy.
