Some historical perspective. Okay, I go WAY back to the era when CT's were given cold hard cash when they accepted a student teacher. In today's money, it was about $400. Then, it changed where the...

Definitely report. This student could act on his passions or do something despicable like report her for sexual abuse, spread rumors about her/them. Some people are sick. She needs to stay ahead of...

I'm so glad to hear that it isn't prevalent in all schools.

One thing I'd like to put out there is the use of the f-bomb on this site. The use of "WTF" and some other vulgarities seems to be not...

Flu shot

I thought again about my team teacher's death and all the sick days she left behind. 46 years at about 15 days a year. She took almost none. Maybe 550 days no one used...not even the sick bank.

My former team teacher died this weekend. Tragically, she refused to retire and keep trying to hang onto her very long teaching career- over 45 years in the same district. She severely neglected her...

Wildflowerz,

Since they compensate you $0 for unused sick days, portion them out and use a few. Don't let issues like a bad class stop you from using them judiciously. You need to get into the...

I had the maximum number of sick days one was allowed to accumulate and it was worth over $20,000 when I retired. From reading everyone's postings, it is obvious that every state, district, etc. has...
