I hope that this will be a place where we can better open the lines of communication between myself, the students and the parents/guardians. I also hope to use this space as part of my general encouragement to use various forms of technology to help us learn in different and meaningful ways.

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! It was pretty quiet here with just my wife, the boys and their grandma. I made WAAAAYYY too much food because I am used to having 15-20 people over for Christmas. The turkey was humungous, but it meant I could make a ton of turkey soup, which I actually like a lot more than turkey by itself. Rest assured, I had plenty leftover for turkey sandwiches as well.
Hope you all had as good a time as possible under the conditions!
Been a lazy first week off over here. Just enjoying being home. We got a little bit of snow, which was neat, but it all melted. I guess making the snowflakes in class really worked. We will have to be careful when we put them up so that we don't cause a blizzard!
My kids did a Zoom meeting with Santa and were pretty excited about that. Some of the normal traditions are changing a bit, but it still feels like Christmas.
I hope the start to your break has been fun and relaxing!
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!
