Going Back to School

18-Aug-2021 • San Francisco, California United States

It seems I will really have to return to school next week.  Yup, after a year and a half, it's back to school for us, teachers, and students all over the USA.  I was hoping I wouldn't have to yet, given that the Delta variant is spreading like crazy. 

Anyway, whether kids or educators get infected, get sick, and even die, classes will resume.   I heard on the news that three teachers in Florida already passed away, all within a day since returning to work.  Some schools have had to shut down for two weeks when some kids tested positive for Covid.  You all know how I feel about it.  I think it's ridiculous and crazy.  Why now when the Delta strain is more virulent and deadly than the Alpha variant?  Sure, many teachers have been vaccinated but there have been thousands of breakthrough cases now. 

I did go back to my classroom twice in the past two weeks.  I had to get it ready for school opening.  All I have to do now is attend all the Beginning of the Year meetings and annual workshops and meet the kids Thursday next week.  May God help us all!
