It's time for Vosberg v. Putney again.
Do you stand or sit when you teach? Do you use a cane, walker, or wheelchair around the school? Do you carry your books, or put them in a little red wagon? Before luggage with wheels, attorneys used little red wagons loaded with books and catalog cases to intimidate opposing counsel in trials.
Y’all start e-a-r-l-y. I have until August 31 before I have to be back in the classroom…My sympathies to you for the pathological system in which you operate…
We start early because the students want exams before Xmas, so that Spring exams end before the bar review begins.
I used to be a pacer when I taught. Currently I’m doing rather more sitting, or leaning on a podium. I have been driving to school even though it’s a short walk; my books are in a backpack (doesn’t go well with my suit), or just carried to class.
I had a walker when I came home in late March; that only lasted a couple of weeks, and then the cane phase came and went. My balance is fine now. The issue is stamina.
I still have a walker and a set of crutches at home. I keep a cane in the car. At work, I have a grabber so that I can pick things up off the floor. Stamina is tougher, but time will help. How about swimming to build stamina?
