I know this isn't much help, but you do qualify for a Family Medical Leave and could take a year off to see how things fall out and return to a position next year. You would however, not get paid,...

I retired this week

I had planned to work for three more years. (I was also in the DROP program.) But no matter how much I enjoy teaching, I enjoy living more. I am a high risk person, and would have been working with...

We just got a draft copy of the guidelines.

We are in a hotspot for Corona right now. Planning on back to school as usual. Parents can opt for virtual school, either county or state based. Masks are "encouraged" but not mandated. Kids will...

In my experience with autistic students

phonemic awareness is often a problem. He is not unique in this regard. I have had students that could read pretty much anything put in front of them, but couldn't spell cat. I don't have any easy...

I can't settle into any planning

I usually have a project or two that I work on over the summer to prepare. But, I can't seem to focus on anything at all. Just doesn't seem worth the effort to prepare something I may not be able...

I've never done it

but a coworker covered an entire wall with a roll paper that looked like shiplap. I'm not sure what she used to stick it up there (hot glue?), but it stayed all year. It, along with the carefully...

I'm guessing your degree isn't in education?

Many states have alternative certification programs. With your teaching experience, and a bachelor's degree you should be able to apply for a job and then work to complete whatever additional...

Sorry to go off on a side topic, but your comment about insurance has me wondering. . . Can the school board mandate that parents have insurance? I wouldn't think so. And what about our homeless or...

Been there

I used to wear my hair pretty short. I don't wear make up. And, I'm six foot tall. I have been called sir many times. And, it always made me wonder. Did they not see my rather large breasts? I...

I would wait

to consider making such a big purchase. We have been told to take home all soft textiles including rugs/carpets because of the Covid cleaning schedule. You may not be allowed to use a rug or carpet.

I hope the rule will be changed

by the time you get there. I just spent the last week as my mother's only allowed visitor at the hospital. Had checkins at front entrance with temp checks, masks required, and calls to floor to...

You need to make them an image

rather than a text box. So do as Kalua suggested and make screen shots of them to use, unless you have another kind of graphics program that will save text images in a graphic format. It is a...

I'm a Mac user

and screen clipping usually works for me. But, another option might be to scan the doc and save as a png or jpeg. Then you can drop it as the background as was described above.

I think it is a lovely idea

Just be sure to put the strawberries in a closed container that can be wiped down when she gets home. And of course, wash the strawberries.

because I am in the same boat as you. Only a couple of years left, and in a high risk group myself. I am both looking forward to and dreading the next school year. I definitely prefer face to face...

We ended up changing things a bit

We do our tests on quizzizz. The kids are given the spelling words at the beginning of the week, and given a basic menu of ways to study the words. That part is done with Google Slides. The test on...

I think some of those files require a plugin like Flash Player in order to work. It could be that the computers some of your students are using do not have the correct plug in or software to make it...

I use Google Meet

I record a session, just turning video off and using the microphone to record my voice. When I stop recording it automatically saves to my google drive. Then I can just upload the file onto the...

Thank you everyone for your suggestions

I'm not a fashionista, and really don't care what people think of me while I'm out. But, I do want to be as comfortable as possible. You've given me some great suggestions. Thank you so much!

What to wear?

I live in Florida, and it is HOT already. I usually swim as my form of exercise, but that is off the table for the duration of our quarantine. So, I've been walking. I am a BIG girl--tall and...

I'm a geek, but

I have a teammate in exactly the situation you have described. I normally resent any expectation by my employer that I use my own personal devices for work related things. I avoided loading...
