166: My School is the Arc

19 Oct

My school has flooded. Two grade levels have been displaced. There are small children all on top of each other in every corner of our building attempting to have school as usual. 6 classrooms flooded with mold creeping up the wall and our gym is unusable.

We have one grade level in a giant space with teachers tag teaching throughout the day.

It is amazing how resilient these children are throughout the entire day. It blows your mind as you walk by and see these children having business as unusual in a very unusual situation.

Another grade level has a class and half packed into the side of our computer lab.

Today, they learned more work needs to be done, more tests need to be run and another week will be spent in these make shift conditions. The poor teachers were bummed out.
