一切顺利

Post by吹笛者H.

在这种大流行病中对我的第一个重大损失之一是我的笔记本电脑在家庭事件中的工作中失去了一个六岁的人“没有故意这样做!!!”In the grand scheme of things obviously this is not much of a loss (no my stuff wasn’t backed up, yes I know, etc), but since every single email from my university and department has been about how I can Keep Teaching Online, well it has been hard. I don’t have money for an iPad. In a touching and bizarre show of faith and charity some of my students tried to figure out how to legally gift me one. Fortunately before we were put on lockdown I was given two third gen iPads, and it is on these that I fight through technology whose system requirements I don’t meet. It’s a headache. Or it would be if I could feel anything over the near constant anxiety in my chest and throat and mouth (am I having trouble breathing??).

I say all that to say this will not be my best post. And I’m not living my best life. And I have more than the normal number of complaints but I no longer get the energy to share them.

What brings me here though is a compromise between fire and fatigue. I am mad. I am on fire with rage at my own department but I also don’t feel like I can do anything about it so this post is to ease my guilt a bit. Or maybe it’s a plea for help. Who needs labels when the world is ending.

除了一边我只是想指出,在2019年8月,当亚马逊着火时,我应该是准备的计算课程,儿童被置于据说不是纳粹奔驰的国家。我是令人难以置信的,我正在接受一名雇主的钱,这些人以天文学的名义为学生和我们的自然资源造成风险。2019年8月,我正在努力与往常一样的业务道德,现在我应该在一个不可知的全球灾难的中间提供内容和一致性,这些灾难影响我们所有人,并威胁着美国当地恐怖。

一位朋友说Maunakea让我们准备好了。在这里,我和我的桌子和椅子在巴赫曼坐在一起,因为从我的停车场工作是从我的孩子开始工作的唯一途径。就在昨晚我通过努力保护Mauna的努力,我和人们遇到了缩放电话。呼叫是关于组织,以确保人们被照顾,因为事情不可避免地变得更糟。今天下午我与Kia'i(保护者)进行了一组召唤,继续为歌曲,祷告和社区聚集在这个时候,这对任何关心别人的人这么难。

我下了电话,想到了我的部门在哪里?我们的毕业生学生无法联盟,不要谋生工资。他们无法识别的联盟正在采取行动,但是是我们的毕业椅?我通过电子邮件发送了办公室,了解我们的保管人是否还可以;他们说他们被设置了,但如果任何改变,我都不知道他们是否可以与我们任何人联系。我们生活在我所有关于除湿数学的所有投诉中的最寒冷的版本。

If we lose a member of our community to illness due to lack of funds, lack of resources, or lack of connection, who cares if we successfully zoomed our lectures??

I’ve heard it said that we have an obligation to our students to provide them what they paid for, but what about our moral obligations to each other? If I’m having breakdowns because I have to navigate care givers whose exposure I can’t control, whose availability I can’t rely on, and I get a mass mailing with a thousand links about administering exams, all I can think is my workplace doesn’t care if I survive this.

最糟糕的是,我知道我超级特权。

Everyone make connections; reach out to others and let’s remember those who didn’t. I will no longer be intimidated by mathematicians who failed this massive test in decency.

Sent from my borrowed iPad and seven layers of anxiety.

    吹笛者H.captured everything my CUNY undergraduates are dealing with from the lack of laptops to the children in their homes to the intense anger with the government. Many of my students at CUNY are essential workers and have extended hours. Some are sick.

    这个城市的公立学校发送吻ds reading assignments and worksheets. I’m simply using youtube, worksheets, and a textbook. We don’t need to use this high tech zoom or video conferencing to teach mathematics and shouldn’t if our studemts don’t have the tech to follow. Those of us at urban public universities in areas directly hit hard by Covid19 need to teach asynchronously so students can catch up next month or in the summer.

    Yet we do need to keep teaching because our students hope to graduate on time or take that course with a prerequisite in calculus. We need to be generous with the incompletes but still cover all the subjects they need to succeed in their engineering and nursing programs. But we don’t need to use high tech especially when it excludes our own students from the opportunities they deserve.

    Sincerely,

    一个愚蠢的教授
