How To Teach While Wearing a Mask (slightly humorous)

Step 1. Wear a mask that fits properly – not too small or oversized

Step 2. Make sure you speak clearly and loudly

Step 3. Take off the mask when/if possible (in the break room, in the bathroom, etc.) to give yourself a breather (and let your ears rest – those straps are irritating)

Step 4. Try to sound enthusiastic in class even though you (and your students) probably hate wearing masks

Step 5. Repeat the process daily and try not to lose your mind.


Seriously, I hope everyone stays safe in and out of the classroom.

Follow the guidelines for maintaining public health and safety and think of how your actions affect your students and coworkers. 

Let’s hope this Coronavirus pandemic ends soon. 

Good luck!!
