73. March 13, 2020 was my birthday

and the last day of nomarl school in my high school classroom. We went into remote learning within a week and the nightmare of Covid and no kids, getting laptops for all kids and wifi for the kids and faculty that needed connectivity, including me, our wifi is absolutely horrible. At the slightest hint of rain or snow or moderate winds we lose connectivity. THe school provided me and several other teachers that live in rural parts of the county with a Verizon Hotspot. Which was great, I could teach out of my barn. I put a huge chalkboard down there years ago when our kids were young, they do as all kids do when given huge blackboard with color chalk, they drew and wrote stuff and had fun. That hotspot saved me for the rest of 3rd and 4th quarter. I even got to use it for a month when remote classes kicked off again in late August. By then the school system told us to return the HotSpots it was costing them too much money....Now weare back in school with 4 cohorts of kids , 2 cohorts of kids, monday and tuesday and 2 more cohorts on Thursday & Friday....we've been doing this for about 3 weeks now and the largest number of kids in my classroom has been 4, 2 of the kids did not return to school for their second day of cohort, they went back home and joinded the class in remote learning or dropped out again....I don't see us returning to normal school until next fall if we are lucky.....The city/county school system did get vaccinations, at least the first round of vaccinations for all teachers starting last week. I got my first vaccination 2 weeks ago and have another 2 weeks until my second Moderna shot.....Life goes on, at least I have a big pasture with lots of wildlife visiting our creek and posing for my game camera. I hate remote learning as do most of my fellow teachers.....So yeah, I remember last March 13th very well.
