There's nothing to be done at this point unless the teacher who created this big fiasco goes to a department store and replaces all the make up she took from the girls. Their parents will probably...

I bought a clock

A three hundred dollar decorative clock to hang on our wall. I still love it every time I look at it. It's probably the single most expensive decorative item I've ever bought. I felt justified in...

I would have a talk

with her.

Something like: I love this school and I wish I didn't have to leave. I've been at this school XX years and its like a second home to me. During my time here, I've (name some...

If you fail the test

it shouldn't be because of what you ate the night before. If you go in fasting, you haven't eaten anything in quite a few hours, and your blood sugar should be low. You drink the nasty stuff to...

Here's an interesting article

One statistic that I thought was outrageous:

Are they saying that for every four teachers in the...

It's possible

My daughter graduated with a degree in History. (I advised her not to get a liberal arts degree, but I digress) Couldn't find a job. Went to Korea to teach English for two years. She decided to...

Glad you got an answer.

It's so scary when your kids are in pain.

I think there's a difference

between suggesting testing, and asking if the parent has ever considered asking for testing. I've never suggested testing. The conversation might go something like:

I am concerned because Johnny...

I hate to be the one to say it

but if there was top of the lungs shouting in your classroom for 40 minutes, and you were unable to identify all of the students, perhaps your sensory handicap makes it impossible for you to...

I agree with the above

If the child is there (and even if he/she wasn't) I try to sandwich the bad news with any good news I can first, and then move on to suggestions for improvement, without dwelling too much on the...

I made three kids cry last week

They forgot their library books and couldn't check out a new one.

The first time I made a kindergartener cry, I was subbing in a class. After redirecting him every five minutes all day long,...

My daughters say

pics or it didn't happen all the time. They don't mean it. It's a way of asking for pictures, mostly.

I'm on three different Librarian groups on facebook. My favorite is Learning Librarians.

So, I wonder

If 12 teachers fill out the form and have glowing things to say, and 12 teachers put the form in blank, do you think the P will draw conclusions about teachers who didn't fill the form out anyway? ...

I agree

I've been a classroom teacher for 14 years, and now am a librarian, who occasionally has to take my program to the classroom. While I preferred as a teacher to leave the room during resource times,...

I agree with Southernfried

who knows her own kids, her own classroom, and her own school culture better than anyone else here. I've always been leery of "throwing the book" at students, as I think, like spanking, it makes...

Well, unless it happens often

...the note thing could be one teacher realizing at the last minute that Christmas letters needed to go out like, yesterday, and hurriedly typing something up last minute. Then rushing out to pass...

Not really

I enjoy them when I'm with them, and it's always good to see them again, but no, I don't miss them on my breaks.

All military, including the Coast Guard

were paid on January 1. The next pay period would be January 15. Military IS being paid during the shutdown. A bill has been introduced in the Senate to pay the Coast Guard on the 15th, and...

I accidentally did something like that

in High School. I had bought myself a PSAT study booklet, and discovered that the teacher was copying the practice vocabulary tests verbatim and giving them to us for a graded quiz. I showed off to...

I would think

that chilled cookie dough would spread less, not more. I would guess that either your method for measuring flour was different than the person measuring for the gift. (Or you miscounted the number...

I don't think

the OP ever intended to imply that K-2 is just fingerpainting and crafts. In fact, she stated that 2nd grade teachers had done their jobs by informing parents of deficiencies and of the third grade...

Let him go, let him go

...he can't hold it back anymore. LOL. You have no support. Not from the parent. Not from the principal. You have no choice but to let him go.

Therefore, I would do as others have said and...
