I've stated before that my school district is now operating on a hybrid model:
Monday morning, 1st-3rd periods in person. Monday afternoon, 1st-3rd periods online.
Tuesday morning, 4th-6th periods in person. Tuesday afternoon, 4th-6th periods online.
Wednesday, "office hours", or sometimes I'll have students take a quiz online.
Thursday and Friday are repeats of Monday and Tuesday, but with different students in-person.
One thing I've realized with this is just how much harder teaching is when it's online. Not only is it exhausting (and often demoralizing) for the teacher, it's significantly less effective for all but the most motivated of students, perhaps the top 5% or so.
This is wearing me out.
Combine this with some family stresses, and I got home from work yesterday just sapped of energy. I decided to lie down around 5:00, but not too much later I got an entirely unexpected drop-in visit from my mother and aunt. They were here perhaps an hour, and when they left, well...I don't remember getting back into bed. When I woke up it was 5:00 this morning. I don't feel entirely rested, but I'm better than I've been in several days, so that's something.
Here's to a relaxing weekend!
