March 24th, 2020/ Social media responses to schools being shut down as a first-year teacher (that started in January). On March 23d Governor Northam Shut Down Schools in Virginia for the remainder of the school year. I did not get the opportunity to say goodbye to my students. This is 4/4 pictures that went with my reflection and response on Facebook that I wrote the next day. It just occurred to me all of these pictures are of the first, and only, few months in my classroom since January. I have a Bob Ross cardboard cutout with the 6 traits of literacy written on his paint pallet. The students are wearing a George Washington mask as a silly/fun way to conceal their identity so I could share the pictures on my classroom Instagram @61bobross
