I want to thank all teachers who have heeeded my advise and are staying away from those covid infection dens called schools. Today’s standard reckons that over 100,000 teachers out of the 300,000 are keeping away from schools. This is good. But there is room for improvement. We want over 200,000 teachers to look for any reason possible to be out of school.
Fellow teachers. You know that our schools are now COVID 19 INCUBATION CENTERS. Most of you are calling me and telling me that you have lost sense of smell. That you are having continuous flu, experiencing high temperatures, loss of appetite, headaches etc. Many of you fear going for testing because you feel you will be stigmatized.
1. ANY SLIGHT CHANGE IN YOUR BODY METABOLISM SHOULD BE ENOUGH TO GO HOME
Teachers, the moment you show any symptoms of, MALARIA, homa, stomachache, diabetes, cancer, HIV COVID.. ETC.. quit school. But you must get a proper leave chit from the TSC SUBCOUNTY OFFICE. As we avoid schools we must be careful not to lose our jobs.
Immediately you feel headache or whatever.. apply for compassionate leave.
Inform your principal you are sick and go home. Cough and sneeze around the head or principal office loudly. They will process your leave chit faster. Even those heads are scared of covid.
Visit your confidential clinical officer, nurse or doctor and let him or her recommend a two to four week bed rest. Simply.. DO NOT FORCE YOURSELF IN SCHOOL teaching yet you have headache. Go home now.
2. THOSE AT 58 AND ABOVE All civil servants over 58 year are already working from home but you see some teachers saying that they’re waiting for circular or letters from TSC before they can work from home.
How do teachers perceive Gov’t directives?🤷♂️ TSC CEO said you stay home. DO IT NOW… GO HOME. Simply obey. Most principals and heads of schools are 58 and above.. Kwendeni nyumbani. Just sigh the cheques from home as you watch cartoon network.
3. CHANGE YOUR TEACHING STYLES Do not spend 40 minutes or a double lesson in class. Give them work to copy. Give them handouts. Avoid meeting students for things like CU or choir, sports or such. Treat them like danger. If a class is crowded teach from the window. Don’t enter the class. Simply.. Change. Blame it on covid.
Teach and go home or simply stay home. This government is not serious about our protection. But because it is payingvus.. Let it pay as we protect ourselves.
Stay home, stay alive and wait for salary.
