I know what you did wrong...

You opened the email. :) 1 of my bf's and I worked w/ the same crabby secretary of our supervisor

I know how schools say:

It is difficult to expel or even suspend kids w/ 504 or kids who are in sped.
If her 504 is due to epilepsy, I see absolutely no connection to her swinging at the teacher.
It probably is very...

Another view..

As a general ed teacher, I have seen student expectations lowered to a point that is ridiculous over the yrs. It may just be our inexperienced sped teacher. IDK, but I have had lots of sped kids...

Just saw this....

Wow! My 1st thought too goes to what happened before the sub "went off?"
I saw where the teen swung at her 1st. I think teachers should be able to defend themselves in cases like this. ( I am...

All I can say is I am sorry you

are having to go through such a nightmare. What doesn't kill us makes us stronger. This experience is something you can learn from. To work as a teacher nowadays in many places, you are given mixed...

I dealt w/ that decline for maybe 10 yrs

or more. I noticed the biggest change when parents got addicted to FB.

When I 1st saw a device in a 2 yr old's hands I remember being shocked thinking, "What a smart kid!" My bad for thinking...

You did what many wanted to do over the yrs, but were either afraid to or couldn't afford to do. Working in a place w/ so many demands is not healthy.
I really "get you" about you feel like you...

Making copies/ APPLe Annie

is right on! I taught 3/4 for almost 30 yrs. To me, they were the best grades, but everyone has their own preference, I know.
If they could not find the paper I found 1 that they could copy. I...

If they are learning what they need to

learn and going to the next class knowing how to work w/partners/groups then I don't think they are talking too much. If they are below grade level, interrupt a lot, and are chatting about things not...

Piggybacikg off of Evan....

I have not stepped foot in another school in probably 10 yrs, other than for an inservice once in a blue moon. So I truly do not know what other schools believe in different states when it comes to...

By your 1st paragraph,

It brought up a sick feeling in me about parents and the educational system. I am so sorry you are in the trenches like you are. When I look and see what has happened to kids because of the lack of...

I read about AZ being forced to hire

Filipino teachers to fill hundreds of their unfilled teaching jobs. They need to get a clue.
Pay American teachers to teach and let them teach.
They should be asking themselves, "Why is it so...

Teachers are being to asked to do more

with less for yrs now. We get less prep time and tons of new computer programs to learn/ input/use here. Teaching was less time consuming when we did not have computers.
I love Smartboards and kids...

I have an unhealthy cure

I have been at teaching almost 30 yrs. It is exhausting! I bring a diet Coke in and sip on it from about 11am to 3. The caffeine helps me.
When I was a bit healthier, I'd grab about 10 almonds and...

Maybe if you say it louder!

I did not mean for my pp to have a mean

tone at all. I just meant this is what education is coming down to and I am tired of it. I am truly sorry that you are having to deal with that. It is wrong and the kid should be made to fess up,...

They are not following IEP's due to being overwhelmed. There will be days that go by and my kids aren't pulled.The main teacher told me this yr that all they can do is crowd control. She flat out...

If you are the mellowest one,

they will ask you to do it often. I sit in on IEP's too when they are not my kids. I am the 1 who doesn't make a fuss about it, so I am the 1 who gets picked.
The only reason they ask me is if the...

Our school is not like that at all. Most of us try our darndest to keep kids out of sped. Our Title person never has many kids though. Once she gets them, it can easily be a pipeline to sped.
