I will be out Monday and Tuesday of next week. One of the other math teachers will be covering my math classes and a sub will cover my science classes. The math teacher has young children, and you never know when someone will be sick, so I provided backup plans.
Usually, when we use technology, we have a backup plan in case the technology fails us. In this case, the technology IS my backup plan. Is that even sane? Not sure. It's definitely a shift for me. I have an innate love of gadgety things and tools for students to use and I am ever-hopeful that things go off without a hitch. I know they don't, so I plan for it. Now, I'm doing it backwards.
There is a backup to the backup, but it's boring. I hope the sub doesn't have to go there.
