Response to kimbutgar (Original post)

82. Last year yesterday, I was planning the rest of the next three weeks with my colleagues.

We had been told we were going to teach from home through Spring Break due to COVID. We laughed and said how we'd see each other in a month. Ha ha. Fast forward one year later.

I'm about to return to the classroom for the first time to actually teach there almost to the day, one year later. If you had told me then what was going to happen over the course of the next year, I probably wouldn't have believed you.

I hope people work with the vaccinations and we are able to have some version of normalcy again. I know I'm not alone in that respect, but I'm probably going to have masks around for the rest of my life, so the changes of COVID cannot be understated. That doesn't even count the deaths and suffering by those left behind.

I am a changed person due to the past year. I've examined myself emotionally and spiritually to find holes that I can repair in new ways. Now, I'm ready to apply what I've learned to the old me from the physical classroom, to which I return in two days. What a whirlwind.
