  1. One of my go-to sources. Full thread has more insights.
  2. It was time. I have enjoyed reconnecting w/former students especially ones now in their mid-years w/families, businesses, successes and struggles. Had a great exchange yesterday. I’m still open to a return in 2021 or 2022 for a year or two. Would have to be the right job and not full-time.
  3. I’ve said this many times, but I picked a good year to retire. I know it’s a lot deal with. My wife has a full class of 1st graders now, and it’s easier on her than the modified. She didn’t have to do synchronous days, but when A/B days were in place, after a full day she would spend the evening evaluation on-line assignments and communicating w/parents. My niece teaches HS, w/multi-preps. Exhausted. Best wishes and I’m sure you will find some efficiencies in due time. Cheers.
  4. Elementary schools in the larger Boise area district are full on traditional w/full classes attending daily. Secondary is modified with A/B days.
  5. No need to be embarrassed. I learned new things about the Great Depression, WWII, the Civil Right Movement, the Cold War, and more every year — still do. It’s not infinity, but the study of huge historical events and eras has that feel.
  6. I used the PBS video of “Liberators: Fighting on Two Fronts in WWII” for years teaching WWII. It mostly followed the 761st and a member of the 183rd Combat Engineers (involved the rescue of the 101st Airborne at Bastogne). Great stories even if the Buchenwald part, among others?, had factual issues. Two important themes of WWII.
  7. Not exactly, but probably the closest thing you’d grasp. It’s not as fun as reactionary populism, but it works better.
  8. Wrong, dickless Bob. Never a Democrat. Wrong on the rest of analysis, too.
  9. Not pro-life, I take it. Also, unable to differentiate fundamental changes in voluntary behavior from government policies.
  10. Suicide data, at least nationally, seems to have a fair time lag. In Idaho, a high rate state, reports through August were stable (just over 2019 pace, but behind 2018) But, I am fearing more for the young as this thing drags on into the dark months. There are many localized reports (across the nation) of a rise in youth and young adult suicide. A definite concern.
