    by Greg McVerry on October 6, 2020 at 12:40 pm

    Looking for a an action packed day today. -Early on I had some ideas for the #cmmcab working group that kept festering on my hike yesterday. So did some hacking on Working Group tasks before house woke up. -Dropped kids off at school and checked the six online classes I teach this semester. Dropped in to share my love of Erik B and Rakim (this week doing best hiphop duos of 90s recommendations welcome) -Then it will be a morning full of interviewing Southern Connecticut State University students seeking admission into our College of Education programs to become #k12 teachers. -Will hop back into teacher mode and record some videos for #edu506 where students are getting their roles assigned in our weekly discussions. Then over #edu307 to show students how to use a wiki to add our book reviews. -By lunch I transition to #tech4teens camp a free remote technology camp for middle schoolers. Camp starts at 15:00 so want to finalize lesson plans and hire a student worker to help with the work load. (DM for donation materials all moneys go to getting free computers and training to families in New Haven) -Then after dinner I have to rectify the books as treasurer for East Haddam Little League...little behind on the books.

    I don’t think I am a successful blogger. I am a skilledish writer, but I’m not anywhere near where I want to be in terms of the development of my skills as a writer. My pieces start out choppy (and sometimes end that way I’m sure). It takes me many proof reads to clearly articulateContinue reading "Writing Prompt 5"

    When I think about how the sky informs my world, I think about science. The sky and outer space is endless, and I think that has some impact on how I view the world. If something like the sky is possible, and for they’re to be clouds that are constantly fluidly moving, much of anythingContinue reading "Writing Prompt 4"

    On May 25, 2020, George Floyd was murdered by Derek Chauvin. Murder in the coldest of blood. 8 excruciatingly long minutes is how long it took for the worst mistake of Derek’s life to be over with.  The devil hung on every second. George gasped for air as if the atmosphere was leaving earth. I could see the helplessness in his eyes. The look a fish has when it’s out of water. I could hear the rasp inContinue reading "“I Can’t Breath”"
