    The P said he would take care of getting a sub for my classroom. I believe he tried unsuccessfully to get a long-term sub who could teach math. Instead, my students were treated to different subs so I can safely assume that little to no learning has been occurring. Before the accident, all my students had pacing guides and assignments in workbooks. This was our COVID procedure if any student were to be out for an extended period. But, with my being absent for 4 weeks and no math instruction going on, what in the world will I be stepping back into?

    How do you know what has and has not been done?

    Hopefully the pacing was still followed! If not... health is more important than curriculum. They’ll catch up.

    Since the pacing guide involved learning new material, I’m inclined to say barely any learning has been done.

    You may be surprised. I was out 2.5 months, and my kids were fine.

    There may come a time in any teacher's career when we realize that we are not indispensable, and when we are gone, time marches on.
    Your students will have progressed...perhaps not as fast as you might have wanted...but the year moves on.
    Good luck with your continuing recuperation and try not to believe that all is lost with your students.
