Silver Lining: Bohac and Downs

Through the end of the 2019-2020 school year, The Camasonian staff would like to share CHS staff and students’ “silver linings”, those things that make quarantine life more bearable as the school year winds down.

What has been your silver lining personally during quarantine?

  • My silver lining has been extra time with my wife and three daughters and our dog “Daisy”! I enjoy being around as they wake up each day, having meals together, being more connected to their learning, and just enjoying life (even crazy times of life) together. I’m very thankful for them!

What has been your silver lining professionally during quarantine?

  • Professionally, one of my silver linings has been growing my tech skills a bit…becoming a YouTube star (okay, maybe not…but I learned how to put videos on Youtube and use them in Google Classroom…)  I’ve also learned a lot more about Quizizz and have used it a lot.  Another silver lining has been the many challenges that have forced me to be flexible and contemplate why we do what we do. It has reaffirmed to me the value of learning and that we’re all designed to learn!

What do you miss most about being at CHS?

  • Definitely the thing I miss most are the daily interactions with students and staff members. Education, in my opinion, is all about building relationships. This has been much different remotely.  Thankfully, relationships had already been established…so maintaining them remotely, while not ideal, has been possible. But I miss interacting with students every day… helping them learn and learning from them!
