Our school is a middle school on a bell schedule. They have 2 built in bathroom and mask breaks in...

When we are on meets for school meetings, cameras often flicker on and off. The IT people tell us it has to do with internet capacity. Their picture might...

Late Work

Our school policy is called a minimum policy - we are required to at least maintain these rules, but may go...

I commiserate. I’m tired too. I’ve been able to manage pretty well, but I admit my positive outlook is wearing pretty thin.

Just to pass on something super important that I learned from another...

Oh no...

I bet that teacher with the sub sandwich picture thought they were being cute... :rolleyes: They aren’t.

I am always amazed by how much other teachers just take over for subs. I get that you...

I already explained what to do.
Then I summarized it.
Then I waited for questions.
Then I sent you off to work...
And “NOW” you don’t understand.

I refer them to the directions.

In fact it is how we do all of our modified assignments. The teachers give me the assignment.c I adjust it for my kids and assign it only to that 4-5. The other kids have no clue who received a...

Oh, no!

That pretty much sums up 2020 if you ask me.

But in each individual post you can select groups of students to assign it to. The default is that all names will be selected, but you can deselect all or pick and choose who to assign something to....

That is how we do attendance.
It might also be a debrief - I.e. here is what you need to get done today.
I assume this would be laid out in a teacher’s plans. How long probably varies by teacher,...

It’s so interesting to hear your story, because I often feel it is the other way around - we are far too ready to ignore requirements in the interest of having our “freedoms” or because masks became...

All students used to funnel through one set of doors. Now the number of buses are split. Half come in the main entrance and half come in the back entrance. There are spray painted marks on the...

Thank You

Yes, we can rephrase the question.
I also record a read aloud version of every test. That’s for my students - I am stretched pretty thin so I am in classes on alternating days. If an assessment is...

I hope that is a permanent raise. Many more people would step up to sub for a decent amount of money.
Not sure about right’s like you’ve just received “an offer you can’t...

That’s where all our RIF’d lunch staff, bus drivers, and parapros went!
When the board decided to go hybrid after letting all these very necessary people go, most declined, because they had...

Middle School

We are hybrid and it is miraculously split about equally into thirds. We only have 30% of our kids in at once.
Our highest number tops out at 10.

So, some teachers taped spots six feet apart...

And the texts. Who said you could text me?
Actually, I replied: “I don’t vote for people who contact me without my permission.”
