[redacted], but realized that would just create an endless email chain that wouldn't really solve anything, so rather I'm sending it to you, to think about but hopefully not worry about. I apologize for placing this minor burden on you, but I guess when it comes right down to it I just need to vent and you have made the terrible, terrible choice of being kind and accommodating.
I realize this is all speculative, and have no idea what to do, but as we move to in-person courses this is something to consider. I understand that online courses are not making, and there's a need for in-person sections. If (so many IFs) the Delta variant heats up, the school may need to go online for a couple of weeks.
- Do in-person classes switch to Live Streaming at that point?
- What if students decide they don't want to come to class because of virus fears?
- What if students decide they don't want to come to class and blame virus fears?
- What if I'm teaching in person--do I just not visit my 80-year-old mother for a semester--because even after vaccination she has the antibody levels of an unvaccinated 50-year-old Trump supporter.
The important thing to keep in mind is that I'm anxious, and thanks to the miracle of the internet I can quickly transfer those anxieties to you. Thanks!
