Jerah is doing well. He has in person school 4 days a week and on Wednesdays he has virtual school (if you can call it that!)
At first they did an online Microsoft Meetings version of school. Wednesday at 10 AM we would log in and see his teacher and his teacher assistants. Jerah LOVED IT! He really enjoyed seeing everyone on the screen. First week, only Jerah and one other student logged in. Second week, same thing. Third week, Just Jerah. All that set up and all three teachers/assistants for Just Jerah. One student.
So, they changed to tablet school. They send home a Google Chrome Tablet on Tuesdays and we send it back on Thursdays because they don’t want anything to happen to the piece of junk that doesn’t work. Google should stick to their search engine, because their laptops and tablet completely suck. If I were Google, I would not want my name associated with those pieces of crapola. But that’s Just Me. First day of tablet school, we finally figure out how to turn the dang thing on, and its battery is more than half dead. Then it decides it must do a “Critical Systems Update” which logged us out of EVERYTHING. And we did not have the information to log back in. I emailed the teacher and we had an email conversation half the day trying to fix it. There are four different log ins and all four are set up with a different log in name and password… cuz, that’s helpful to parents. Last week was week 3 of tablet school and I finally scrapped that idea and logged him in on my own tablet which worked much better. Except that Jerah has decided that he LOVES the noise it makes when he gets a wrong answer. So now he gives wrong answers ALL the time. He knows the correct answer, so I just let him have fun. We do goofy tablet school for a bit and then turn to more important things such as how to do laundry and how to cook food in the microwave.
Will be trying to write more here… I love blogging, but my life is incredibly full at the moment. The ministry I oversee was awarded a very large grant for expansion of the program. Lots of planning and preparation this month as our expanded program launches Nov 1.
I will part with this… I saw a T-shirt recently that stated “Hustle so hard your haters ask if you’re hiring.” I did.
