I Can’t Even: Edtech Ramblings & Other Stuff

November28

A few weeks ago I received an SOS call from a teacher in distress. The Internet appeared to be down and that meant the tech lesson she meticulously planned was nearing epic fail status. When I entered the room, I could immediately sense that anxiety and frustration trumped her usual calm and patient demeanor. As she explained the issues she was encountering, I noticed that a few items necessary for her to be successful were not connected. It was that simple. But instead of adding to her mounting stress level and pointing that out, I poked around for a few minutes, pretending to diagnose the demise of civilization as we know it. And then just like that, power was restored, lights flashed and all was good in her world again… (OK, until recess duty began!)

When I returned to my office later that morning (as a Google super hero, of course), I sat in my chair and giggled, thinking about some of the really funny circumstances I’ve encountered in my role as an IT specialist, some of which belong in an episode of Seinfeld. And that doesn’t even count the 19 years I was trapped in a small space with 25+ sixth graders!

Rather than writing the prologue of my first best-seller, I turned to what I know best, my go-to for creating stuff with images and video—my iPhone. I unlocked the screen, tapped on the Snapchat icon and “I Can’t Even…” came to be.

So, here I am… Chit-chatting about some of the workplace things that just crack me up, or even make me shake my head in disbelief.  After all, if you don’t have a sense of humor in this profession, you should probably apply elsewhere.

Take some time to #feelmypain and then please #sharethelove with others via your social media channels.

Gettin’ Google with IT

From time to time, I’ll even include some remarks that reflect what’s happening in my life beyond school, which at times resembles a cross between the X-Files and  Everyone Loves Raymond. Case in point…

Stay tunes for additional sarcasm… In the meantime, I can’t even!
