When we switched to emergency remote-learning in the spring, I prepared and expected for somebody in administration to approach me for advice or assistance. My district is quite large, with about 4000 high school students. Suddenly, every teacher needed to present some instruction digitally, and our class time was drastically reduced to just 1 or 2 short Zoom sessions per week. Educators needed to develop an online workflow, and many were producing or curating video lessons for the first time.
But nope. Not a single email or phone call from the higher-ups, and surprisingly few from teacher colleagues. I understand they felt trapped in the trenches, and were often just grasping for whatever easy solutions could be found. Still, I am disappointed that none of our copious collection of curriculum coordinators* or administrators made any effort.
*annoying alliteration is one of my many writing crimes -- you may leave at any time!
