Boundless Confessions of a Mad Online Teacher by Tó Tó Rupoli

Dear Diary,

It’s day 25 of online english. This whole platform is beguiling.

Today we had our first online injury as Aaron (teacher) and I convinced a student we were coming after him for not doing his work.  While still on a video call with us he ran into a wall in panic.  He’s okay.

A student emailed me to tell me she will not be writing today as her hamster has died. RIP.

Aaron is supporting another student who broke up with his girlfriend and reached out to us to let us know.

Through some technology hocus pocus a group of young boys have realized they can kick me off the video call during my office hours.  I have conceded the virtual office to the rebellion.  We are now engaged in an email meme war and I think I’m winning.

One student will be submitting a poem she wrote for class to a competition!

Another almost did but then proudly declared herself a coward.

At least one kid still does not know how to unmute his mic in video calls.

I think it’s working.
