Sick Day Challenge

Flu struck and I'm not surprised since many students were similarly ill last week. There's not much educators can do when illness strikes except give in to it and get better as you can't teach well when you're ill.

There are many ways to avoid illness too including the following:
  • Making time for hand washing breaks
  • Getting the flu shot as soon as they are given around midyear
  • Getting enough sleep
  • Eating well
  • A healthy balance of school and work life
Once I recover I'll fit in a few more hand washing breaks for all of us and use wipes more often to wipe down our shared materials such as computers. Soon we'll get to leave the windows open more often too and that fresh air will help.

Now it's time to get better.
