As I struggle to help my students upload pictures to their blogs, I decide to abandon them. NOT in the way you might think. I hurriedly walk down the hall and rush into the open computer lab. I’m on the hunt for laptops. Yes. Laptops. I’m done with iPads and tapping that doesn’t work. I pile into my arms about six or seven computers, search quicky for some chargers in case they are dead and trek back to my room. Somewhere along the way back, a thought enters that nearly stops me in my tracks. Grateful. I. Am. So. Grateful to be here. So amazed that I could just walk into a room and take computers without anyone asking what I was doing, without having to “check them out”, without having to explain anything at all. I needed laptops, and they were available. What a night and day difference from just over a short year ago. On that short walk back to my room, I stopped for a brief moment and prayed that I would never take this for granted, and that somehow along the way that my students wouldn’t forget that either.
