Your story

Your story made me tear up! I think because life is so full of situations and challenges that affect us deeply. I can't bear to think of you and those teachers who were arbitrarily moved to...

In 1972 I was teaching in Montreal. I remember trudging to school with snow up to my thighs only to arrive and find that school was cancelled! We learned about cancellations from the RADIO - I...

meal times

I like to go out for coffee but take my own nutritious sandwich or banana apple sauce no flour muffins. I don't usually get hungry until later in the day and don't really want to eat dinner at lunch...

Thank you everyone!

I wish Proteacher had a LIKE button like FB.

I felt so validated by reading your posts after I returned from the MALL and 7,300 steps!!
I bought a "Magic Bullet" type thingy from JCPenney on sale...

Just need to vent!

I'm sitting here in my nightie and robe at 8:14 a.m. Since I quit the volunteer tutoring of a 5th grader on Thursdays, I have a completely free day to do whatever! I am however conflicted. Why do...

Thank you all for your kind comments. I received an email from the teacher in response to my quit notice. She was very understanding and thanked me for the time I did spend.

I was so relieved...

I can so relate to your post. I also am a sub and think about getting up so early and being in the classroom by 7:30 a.m. then dealing with the behaviors and the being "ON" all day - such a perfect...

I totally empathize and understand. I am a retired teacher and sub. I hate it when someone comes in and lectures the class right in front of me about their behavior. It is so insulting, implying...

Are you a Kelly sub?

Just curious if you are hired by Kelly Services. I subbed last year but probably not this year because I heard that one has to work 4 days a week minimum. Is this true? I wish they were more...

Thank you for all your supportive suggestions about letting go of teaching "stuff". I feel I'm among friends and those who understand.

How do I let go of teaching stuff!

I still have tons of kid books. I thought my grandkids would look at them when they visited - (quite often because they live nearby and there are 5 of them 4 - 10 years. They are not interested in...

no refrigerator

This really ages me - we had no fridge!

Milk was delivered everyday, bread a few times a week. We kept food in a "larder" that had a cold slab of concrete. Food shopping almost every day. This...

Tell the students that since you are a "different" person from their regular teacher - Today will be a Different Day.

When they start telling you - oh no we don't do it like that - you can remind...
