A Teacher’s Call

This post is from my son, Chuck, I ask that my followers interested, in education, the mental health field, and concerned citizens; visit his site and give him the support he and other educators needs during this time of crisis.

Thoughts and Writings on Mental Health and Mindfulness

One morning I received a call from my Chief Master Sergeant. He called to tell me that three or four of our fire teams would possibly be going to Panama. We should pack our mobility bags and stand by. The year was 1989 and I was nineteen. I remember the anticipation of waiting. My adrenaline was high and there was some excitement. Like I said, I was nineteen and full of ego and false confidence. I wanted to test my training and my nerve. However, I would be lying if I didn’t say I was also scared to death. You would have to be crazy knowing that you are about to be put in harm’s way and not be at least somewhat nervous. I didn’t go on this deployment. It was over pretty quick.

I was watching some of the horrible side effects people are getting after they survive covid-19. So scary. It is a shame your granddaughters will miss out on so much. Can only pray and hope this soon will pass.

      2. I can only hope and pray that your son will stay safe. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be an experienced online college teacher, and I don’t have to make a choice between my livelihood and my health and safety.

      3. They will make a vote Monday 3rd. as to if students will return, they have already made it mandatory that teachers will have to go to their classrooms each day for virtual teaching. I wish they could remain at home but I guess the school system does not trust what they will do with their time. My children are dedicated and would give more than they take. Thanks Liz. E.
