With our beloved Chemistry teacher out sick, I tried to step in to cover classes. As an Arts major, I always promise teachers that when I “supply teach” in their classes, I won’t actually try to teach math or science. Believe me, it’s for the best!
When a teacher is ill, it is a perfect opportunity to teach empathy. The students were given a few minutes at the beginning of class to think about how their online teacher must be feeling and to create a Get Well Soon card.
One student hesitated to add a chemistry pun, but the class discussed it and decided that “Laughter is the best medicine!”
Get well soon, Mrs. Cule!
