I got a call today. A student tragically passed away this weekend. I haven’t processed it but I — as surely is my entire school — is devastated. Getting through Monday is going to be a trial for everyone. I will write about it later, because I think I have a lot that I want and need to say about this, but for now I’m going to try to forge on with some semblance of normalcy. I’m going to focus on other things so I can get out of my own head for a while. I probably won’t make reference to this until I figure out what I want to say, so expect more math and more teaching in the interim.



  1. Last year I dealt with a student’s father who was murdered. That was unbelievably rough, I can’t even fathom what it would be like to lose a student.
