In the midst of COVID I went into my classroom to gather some things I would need in order to distance teach. I took a minute to sit in my chair that sat at the front of the classroom. I sat there in silence. An eerie silence and looked around to reminisced of all of the joy and laughter that once filled the room. I thought to myself how no classroom should be silent and wondered when life would be breathed back into the room. I have hope and faith that this will happen soon!
It's a really odd feeling being in a classroom that's completely empty on June 1st, taking down bulletin boards that I feel like I just put up and bagging my students belongings with no formal goodbyes. #weird #ughcovid #imissmykids #teacherthings #ootd #lotd #harempants #busyday #emptyclassroom
My last #feetupfriday in my empty classroom and this amazing school. This is not how I ever could have imagined my first year of teaching to go and not how I imagined I’d end my time teaching in Maryland. Holy snizzle snap was it hard to see my homework board with due dates still up from March, or to go through my “graded” folders that I never got to hand back to my kids. Seeing my homeroom kids’ names on the classroom job board, and my folder I keep for certain students who I worked one on one with during flex period was heartbreaking. Moving to Florida next school year means that I won’t be able to see my kids wandering the halls as 7th or 8th graders, or to see them play for the High School sports teams in a few years. And that hurts the most, knowing I’ll never see most of them again. It’s been a rough few months all around and I ask that you spare a few prayers for the students who don’t have a strong support system at home and who are truly missing the stability, support, and love they rely on at school. #imissmystudents #teachersofinstagram #iteachsixth #emptyclassroom #covidteaching #prayersneeded #endoftheschoolyear #endofthischapter #militarywife #militarylife #navylife #bagspacked #firstyearteacher #goodbyemaryland #latepost #teacherlife #6thgradeteacher #iamateacher
No students in the class makes for a quiet space to put together all these at-home work packets! (I may have been also watching Netflix on my Smartboard... shhhh! ) #emptyclassroom #homework #quiet #nokids #packets #netflix #smartboard #teacher #teaching #education #school #losangeles #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers
I know most of you have been back in your classroom so it’s not new to you but first was my first day “back” from maternity leave and It was just so strange. March calendars up, March #behaviorpuzzle still there. My #subtub untouched. It was like just a weekend had passed and nothing was different, but we all know that’s not the case. #maternityleave #teachersofinstagram #teacherlife #emptyclassroom #quaranteaching #iteach #iteachfirst #iteachtoo
Today I went to see my classroom for the first time after all the covid madness started and broke my heart, no one knew we would end up like that. I never imagined that this would be the end of the school year and that I would never see my children again. I entered the classroom and the silence struck me ... In a kindergarten there is never quiet ... Now it was ... But in a bad way. I almost started to cry and I could hardly restrain myself. It was as if I began to hear the voices of my students ... their happy laughter ... I remembered where everyone was sitting but that place was deserted and sad, all the toys remained as I left them when the kindergarten was closed, all the children's drawings were displayed as I left them, everything was as it should be ... But the happy souls of my children were missing. 😥 I miss my kids very much, I miss being well, I miss being normal and it breaks my heart to pieces that I can’t hug my students at the end of the year, their last year of kindergarten, I’m so sorry we couldn't to their graduation party. This year has been tough, full of surprises and unexpected. I'm sad that it ends like this but I gathered in my heart a piece of the hearts of my little students, many smiles, and a lot of innocent love. Being a teacher is not always just joy and rainbows and sunny days, sometimes it’s hard but we must always be optimistic to look to the future and tell ourselves that everything will be fine. . . . #sadteacher #covidchangeseverything #missmystudents #kindergartenteacher #emptyclassroom #brokenheart #wehopeeverythingisgoingtobewell

Year 2 for me at GMS is over, but this year ended like no other: quarantined & distance learning/teaching. I’m so sad for my 8th graders that we didn’t get to end the year like we should have. I had so much more to teach them...we needed more time. BUT, it is what it is & we have to deal with what we were given & move forward! So good luck in HS to my students, my other “kids.” #GMS #8thgradepromotion #packedupmyroom #endoftheyear #quarantined2020 #emptyclassroom #teacher
Year 10 in the books! Swipe to see the last date I wrote on my board— 3.17.2020. . When I made my beginning of year ten post back in August, I never imagined this is how it would have ended. I worked hard, learned new things, figured out how to balance life a little differently, went through some struggles, came out a little stronger, and I’m still standing/smiling. . Thankful for my students, families, community, and administration during this crazy time! I wouldn’t want to go through this time anywhere else or with anyone else! . Congrats to my 19-20 firsties- you’ll rock second grade next year no matter what life throws in your way!!! . #teachingduringcovid19 #teachinginquarantine #lastdateontheboard #teachingduringapandemic #firstgradeteachersrock #firstgradeteachersofinstagram #wisconsinteacher #teachermomcoachlife #endofschoolyear #emptyclassroom
For the record, a school year should never end like this. A school year should end with hugs and waves. A school year should end with pomp and circumstance. A school year should end with cheers and singing. None of that happened today. Coming back to a classroom suspended in time was weird. I threw out first grade concert slips, erased my band assignments on the white board, and put away the musical script that never happened. I returned bingo chips, markers, and scarves to their rightful home at colleagues' classrooms. I picked up PD books from the office to get ready for an online course next week. I ate six feet away from my work best friend who I haven't talked to face to face in weeks. And now I sit at my empty desk and I cry. I cry for the things that should have been. I cry for my kiddos. I cry for the uncertainty of it all. There are some things I know for certain, though. I know that through it all, I am 100% dedicated to my students and my craft. I know I will meet whatever challenges this summer and next year bring to be an example for my students. I know I will advocate for and have the backs of my colleagues and students. Teachers will always teach- empty classrooms, pandemic, social distancing, and all- and we will always love our students. 💚 Until next time RES. . . . #teachersofinstagram #teacherlife #teachingfromhome #teachinginthetimeofcorona #endoftheschoolyear #summerbreak #emptyclassroom

⏳Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.⌛ We officially made it through. God is so good. These last 10 weeks have been a rollercoaster ride. Definitely felt every hill and drop. This break is for focussing on what really matters. I pray my kiddos will get to enjoy their break and return stronger in all areas of their lives. Stay Safe and Happy Summer! #iteach4thgrade #tooblessedtobestressed #emptyclassroom #resourceroom #burstingattheseams
Cleaned up my classroom today. Normally, this is a bittersweet experience. Today, it was just kind of sad. The school is lonely without the students, and the staff. The Canadian Geese playing on the lawn did give me a bit of a smile as I drove away. #teachingfromhome #emptyclassroom #2020kindasucks #missmystudents
Classroom all cleared out for summer 😭 can you believe the last time I wrote the date on my whiteboard was March 12th??? Seems like ages ago! Do you guys think my guest teacher pass will be extended to use next year??? 🤣 #missingmyeigthgraders #missingschool 👩🏻🏫 #emptyclassroom 😭😫 #leftsomedecorfornextyear #stillcantbelieveallthis #whataweirdyear #soclosetosummer ☀️ #wefinishstrong 💪🏼😊
I packed up my students belongings today and it was hard. It was hard to walk into a room that no one has been in since March. It was hard to imagine that these desks would remain empty all summer and that new faces would be calling them their own. It was hard to imagine my students not getting the chance to say goodbye to their friends and teachers like we always do. It was hard to accept that the year was over, even though we all feel like 2019-2020 will always remain incomplete. I loved my class, and I loved the memories we shared in this room together. Class of 2020, you will always have a special place in my heart. Teachers, we did it. It wasn’t easy, it wasn’t fair, but we did it. Through teamwork, support and a lot of patience, remote learning is officially over and we can relax. Now, who’s ready for a summer break!? 😅🏖☀️ #iteachthird #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #msbrownes3rdgradebuddies #packingupmyroom #emptyclassroom #endofyear #memories #students #teachers #goodbyeschoolyear #hellosummer
Feeling melancholy this morning, missing hugs and smiles from my students and those wonderful lightbulb moments. Teaching remotely is not the same. Education is about people - educators (including all the staff in our schools ) and students. #imissmykids #retiringduringthepandemic #noclosure #emptyclassroom
Today is our last day of school and I can not shake the feeling that I forgot something. I believe it’s all the hugs, I love you and don’t forget to read this summer chats I would have with each of my kids! I definitely did not forget them and can not wait to hug them again! Happy last day of school to a year that does not feel complete y’all!
Something both magical and terrifying about an empty school. Had the chance of visiting one today in Madrid.
Today was a weird day. • Today I went in to pack up my students things from our classroom and their lockers - to give to families when they pick up their next round of learning packets. My team and I also printed packets for the next three weeks of learning. When I got to my classroom, I was met with a sight I didn’t quite expect - my desks & tables cleared, carpets cleaned, but also student work and the kitten parade my students drew on our whiteboard remained. • I’m exhausted and filled with so many emotions. Seeing my classroom cleared of desks is tough. Seeing the anchor charts that still hang on our walls, the pictures/student work around the room and more just remind me how much we had left to do together. • Today, I’m sad. I miss my students. I miss the old normal. & that’s okay. Our days are constantly filled with different thoughts and emotions. Today was one of those sad days. #cleanclassroom #emptyclassroom #sad #iteachthird #teachertipscovid19 #weareteachers #teachershare #teachersofinsta #happyteacher #iteachtoo #teachersfollowteachers
Yesterday I finished my online classes. I told my students good bye over zoom. It’s hard to believe that we did this for over 2 months. It was a challenge but we did it. This was taken March 13 the last day I went into work. I still haven’t gotten back to pack up. I know when I do, it will be a little emotional. All in all it was one of the best years I’ve had. . . . . . . #distancelearning #virtualteaching #englishteacher #eslteacher #teacherslife #emptyclassroom #summerbreak #schoolisoutforsummer #thenewnormal #quarantine #honduras #laceibahonduras #centralamerica #classroom
I SURVIVED MY FIRST YEAR OF TEACHING! Today was our last day of school and it was emotionally draining. I feel like I have learned more from my 24 students than they did from me. I am beyond proud of the tiny humans they have become and I will never ever forget them. Happy summer break to all of you teachers who have made it through the year, you’re almost there to anyone who is still in school!!!

Today I walked into an empty classroom. It looked exactly the same as I left it five weeks ago, but it felt so very different. There was a calm, quietness that was unfamiliar and strange. • I didn’t know one Friday when I changed the date to “Monday, March 16, 2020” that we wouldn’t be back. I didn’t know when students left my door for the weekend, it would be much longer than just a weekend before I would see them again. I didn’t know that school as we knew it was about to change. • I miss my classroom. I miss my coworkers. I miss my students.
