Jennifer Tomasello
16:26
I enjoy working from home but wish I had my desktop. I miss interaction with students but I seem to connect well considering the circumstances. Thank you technology. I exercise more, cook more, and have more family time. It does get messier since we are home more. My dog gets more attention.
Jennifer Tomasello
16:38
Zoom meetings keep us connected and really appreciate them.
Ron Hannon

I MISS OUR FRIGGIN' STUDENTS!!!!! CORONAVIRUS SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Agree with Michael Renzi! I love being able to spend time with my kiddos...but it is a juggling act as you can see...she's stuck to my hip!
Michelle Jones
16:46
Getting used to it...trying to find balance with work and family for sure! My dog is in heaven. LOL
Paolina

It is challenging....I feel that everyday is the same day. Studying at home is a bit annoying. I'm used to doing my school work at school.

I wish I could one day work in my pajamas but still haven't been able to do it....Doesn't seem normal.

Yes, groundhog day
Joseph Carey

Working from home is interesting, but one thing I would say is challenging is the internet from time to time and technological glitches.
Dora Mendoza
17:57
I enjoy being home with my kids..
Elaine
18:12
challenging, at times, but it's growing on me! I do prefer working at my desk at work versus working on a laptop here at home.
Rosalinda Perez
18:17
Its difficult working from home. Especially since I am filling in so many roles. Teacher, cook, chacha, nanny etc... Also, there feels like its harder to assist students like I am able to from the office and no one to bug or go for walks with!
Luciana Fuentes
18:20
Work has been adjusting for the positive, but do miss interacting with our Gavilan family. Not going to complain, love being with my kids and grandkids.

The e-mails are helpful as well as the school website
Joseph Carey
27:45
I go to the website, the portal announcements, the daily emails and the forum for news and connectivity with others. They are very informative

Need to take breaks and go outside for fresh air
Kim Benjamin
28:15
Try to get outside and get some fresh air each day
James Ghiorzi
28:25
get up and stretch every so often take your mind off being always on for 10 - 15 minutes
Joseph Carey
28:57
I set up a Google Calendar for my tasks to stay focused too, I agree with activeness too, getting out and about helps

I like working from home --I get up early, dress for work, and have a dedicated spot for working. I make sure to take breaks outside with my dogs!

Planning your day out.... structure is key
Susie Chris
31:39
Daily walks/exercise... get ready for work each day, my connections with students/co-workers are essential and help make me feel useful from home!
Jeanne A
31:58
I keep my space tidy. Clear away coffee cups, water bottles and I don't bring junk and personal papers into my work space.
Michael John Renzi, JD, CBO
32:01
Keep up with your daily habits -- getting ready, shower, dress, fix bed, breakfast etc....Start a list of the goals for the dayand connect with people as opposed to email. Email should be for memorializing facts, figures and details that are difficult to remember.
Stacey Porteur
32:03
Difficulty for me would be actually carving out times to get up from desk and take a walk or move!
Ron Hannon
32:16
I sure as heck don't want to be a stay at home dad now!!!!

Its not that easy when you have kids. We keep them on the same schedule as school and try to manage our schedules around there's. They go from one class to the other but when they have a break we go for a walks around the block and workout with them in the evening to get all the wiggles out.

I was noticing I was dipping into depression and anxiety working from my dinning room table. My posture was suffering, so I created a standing desk in my closet! I absolutely love it. I made it super cozy with warm Xmas lights and Himalayan salt lamp. It is so much more comfortable to work from and I look forward to that space everyday now :)
