Zero dollar day.
Found out today that my college has dropped the mask mandate for non-academic buildings, and is dropping it for academic buildings too come Monday. This is in direct contradiction to current CDC recommendations, as this county is still considered “high risk.” So I moved my classes 100% online for now. And sent an angry email to the admin.
The students are understandably less than thrilled. We’ll see how the admin reacts. We’ll get back to in-person as soon as that threat level hits “medium.”
Teaching online is so much less exhausting. But I recognize that it’s less effective for most students. And, as the man says, this job may be hard, but at least the pay is shit.
Took a walk this evening and saw another bald eagle. Haliaeetus leucocephalus — white-headed sea eagle. They’re pretty cool.
