"I Know You"

The kiddos don't all log in at once. A couple log in early. Then there's a mass of log ins. And then it tapers off to the last few. It's very much a bell curve type of situation. 

The first ones to log in frequently do say hello when I greet them. And, last week I got a few who recognized me and let me know. 

For the band class Monday and Tuesday, the drum major for the brass section said it first. "I know you." Of course, that worked both ways. I remembered him as well. 

And so, on Wednesday and Thursday as I started a new class (that I'm going to be covering until winter break), I got a few more. "I know you." 

Well, they are juniors and seniors. I recognize quite a few names. Hopefully that'll bode well. We'll see.


  1. It's easy for students to remember teachers. But if a teacher remembers a student, it's generally not for a good reason XD.

  2. I would have said "I know you" but Songbird beat me to it.

  3. Are the first ones that log in usually the better students?


  4. Chair does look comfy.

  5. I like that moment, before all of them are logged, it's the opportunity to chat before the course start.

  6. It is so cool when students said "I know you". Thank you for sharing your experience about online teaching during these times.

    1. I don't have anything else to write about. . .

  7. These on line classes and interactions are going to be the order of the day in future. Like Dora said, the chair does look comfy.
