For the past 3 months, I’ve actually been home on my couch, with a broken shoulder and torn rotator cuff. I tripped over a chair at work and fell with my arm out in front of me. I’ve NEVER broken any bones in my whole life…until that Friday the 13th. Ironic, I know.
I learned to type using only my left hand (amongst many other things I had to learn to do one-handed, with the opposite hand than the one I’ve used daily my whole life). I was only allowed to sit on my couch relaxing, so I decided that I would use my time wisely. I created ALL of my lesson plans for the rest of the school year. I didn’t stop there. I then started creating ALL of my own curriculum for my classroom to use with the plans I had just finished making. Even more, then I found Teachers Pay Teachers. I decided to start uploading many things I had created and was still creating with my left hand. Everything you see on my site is available on my Teachers Pay Teachers site: www.teacherspayteachers/Store/The-Teaching-Zoo
Well, now for the GREAT news. I went back to the doctor today and my arm is finally healed! I’m allowed to start using it again. This post is being typed two-handed! Woo-Hoo for me! 🙂
