My Day Got Brighter

Today I “Zoomed” with one of my students. Her mom sent me an email earlier this week asking if I had the Zoom app saying her daughter really misses me and wants to see me through video and talk to me.

How could I say no?? Of course, I downloaded the Zoom app as soon as I finished reading the email and emailed back saying I would love to! We set up to chat today at 11.

I’ve been longing to see my students. Longing for the connections again. Today, I received exactly what my heart has been aching for since school has closed.

Her smiles and excitement when we talked. Her wanting to show me around her house and things that were special to her (her dog, stuffed rabbit, somethings she made, her plant that she continued to care for after taking it home from school, just to name a few). It was so AMAZING to see and talk with her.
It truly brightened my day.☀️💜

I reached out to all my families saying I had the Zoom app and would love seeing and chatting with more students! I hope to connect with more of my students soon! Virtually is better than nothing!

  1. This afternoon I zoomed (a new verb) with my class. Well, fifteen of my twenty-six anyway. It was so nice to see them. Monday we begin distance learning and plan to Zoom again at 10 AM. Those connections are so very important.
