I had a Google Hangouts Meet with some of my students today. I was surprised by which students signed up and what they wanted to share.
A girl who literally hated me at the beginning of the school year, but who I made a connection with later in the year. She joined from her aunt’s house in California just to check in.
A boy who loves to socialize and goof off in class. He wanted to share the origami he has been doing to keep himself occupied.
A boy who is a real techie. He wanted to show everyone the beautiful husky his family was dog sitting. Taking the dog for a walk has been something he’s really enjoyed during this crazy time.
They all touched my heart.
Then there was the student who signed up for the 2:00-2:15 hangout — unfortunately, he signed up at 2:35. Yep, I teach middle school. Even when I’m apart from my students, they still give me a good laugh 🙂
