Forgetting How to Teach

Published by MrHonner on

The holiday break brought some much needed time off. I felt refreshed as I returned to work, but my first day back was a bit disorienting.

I opened my agenda and my SMART Notebook, but forgot to open my lesson plan. I forgot to assign my Geogebra classroom activities ahead of time. I forgot to print out my rosters. I forgot to share my screen. I forgot to check if I was muted.

The muscle memory of teaching I had worked so hard to rebuild had faded after 11 days of vacation. I suppose that’s what vacation’s for, but it’s been many years since I’ve been caught off guard like that after a break.

By the end of the week things it felt like we were back to normal again. In school, at least.
