The Idea

Many of us in education are now working from home. This can be challenging as we juggle family responsibilities, finding quiet space for each member of the family to work, as well as time together with family to work through issues and concerns in the middle of a pandemic.

We need time to talk with colleagues and friends. It helps us to realize that we are not alone with our challenges in these times as well as an opportunity to learn and teach with others.

The Plan

Every weekday at 11am my local time, I will host a chat in Zoom. The plan for now is three days in English, two days in Spanish. Schedule and link below in the details.

Here in Guadalajara, we are currently on Central Standard Time until April 5th. See details at

So the schedule may shift locally for you depending on your current location and daylight saving time schedule.

The Details

This clock entry is for today, I will try to update it daily and definitely when my time shifts for daylight saving time.
