Teaching 3:00:00 [1]

I'm not consistently logging anything, but today I taught 6 30-minute PE classes in orienteering to grades JK/K or 1-3. Today marks the end of the first week, of 3 weeks, of teaching at the Tobin Montessori school. I definitely did not see myself as a PE teacher, ever.

I'm enjoying the partnership with Tim Gill, the PE teacher. He did a nice job of calling out how kids were helping each other.

Kids tested positive for COVID in 2 different classes we teach in. We were outdoors, wearing masks, with other precautions, and were not therefore in close contact with either student. We got tested, as we do each week. I was not worried, but we did make sure to communicate fully across the folks we're working with.

Tomorrow morning Ethan is teaching orienteering on the new Auburndale map in Newton, made through the Orienteering USA youth map program. Andrea was the cartographer. The Parks & Rec person did the field checking, and said she learned a lot from doing that. She created a photo-O from the photos she took for Andrea, and Ethan will use that tomorrow.

Tomorrow I'll be teaching at Brookline Rec on the map I made. Then, on Nov 21st, we'll be teaching 15-25 people with mental disabilities, some of whom are special olympians, also on that same map.

Tomorrow afternoon, Ethan will teach girl scouts geocaching and slip in some orienteering. I need to design that event tonight!

Monday I'll have new employee Charlotte with me. She'll teach on Tuesday, and also take on the remote lessons for the Tobin.

Next Friday, Ethan and I are delivering a 90 minute workshop at the international experiential education conference. !!!

Love you all! Have a great weekend!
