During Period 11 English, one of my in-person students walked in late.
“Ms. Pham, I am not feeling well. I have a low fever and body aches.”
I looked up my student and tried to hide my fear.
“If you do feel well, you may go to the nurse’s office.”
The next day the student did not return to class.
When the student was out the following day, the other students asked, “Does ______________ have COVID? Is he vaccinated? Do we have to quarantine? I knew this was going to happen.”
I tried to reassure them, but I was nervous as well. However, I was grateful that I got my shots two months ago.
He was out for the rest of the week and believe that he was getting tested for COVID.
Due to this situation, I was unable to attend the Pre-Graduation Party at the Hot Pot. I was disappointed.
As for my MA Thesis, I am looking over it, and ready to hit, Submit.
