My first online class went very well. The students were a little bit nervous about taking classes online instead of in a traditional classroom, but once we got started things went just fine. I was happy to see some familiar faces. Teaching online is going to be a challenge, but we’re also having fun. One of my students has young children and his son kept trying to peak in the camera. We all had a good laugh about it.
I’m fortunate that I still have job and a steady income. I’m worried about my friends who have been laid off temporarily or indefinitely. Do you have plans? What are you going to do if this quarantine lasts longer than a couple of months? I decided it might helpful to dig up some work opportunities for those trapped at home and facing unemployment. Here are some resources you might find helpful:

I hope your job is still intact, but if not, hopefully one of the resources above will be hopeful.
