Just-in-Time Learning

In March, as I started Spring Break, I remember the frustration and tears of teachers, mainly one, that spurred me to ask, "How can I make this remote teaching journey a bit easier?"

As I put my face mask on in the mirror, being sure to cultivate a masked avenger vibe, I reviewed my next steps.
Grabbing a trash bag, I heaved it through the garage to land near the wide opening. The door slid up with a crash and bang, and I crept through the semi-darkness of the garage towards the gaping maw of my garage. As the door into the house slipped closed beside me, I sensed preternatural movement, a scurrying that made the garage floor appear like a writhing sliver of darkness had dropped a tendril onto the hard concrete.
