Great responses

Many of my coworkers do not check their email until our first inservice day. Personally, I have my email and it comes up on my phone. I would probably send my first day Power Point of something. ...

Can't keep track

I've used Dojo, but it's too time consuming to keep track of the points in middle school. I did have a list like this, but never really used it. If I recall...

My students don't need to buy anything except pencils. Of course, many don't even bring that and we are told not to say anything to them:(

Our school provides them with folders and notebooks. I...

I've always used a bell. I just say, "When you hear the bell, stop and look."

I've tried all types of things and I feel like they can hear the bell the best. One thing I don't like is that went...

I hate it

I really hate FB. I don't think I could avoid snarky responses so bless you for your patience.

The ice cream social one is just ridiculous. If someone thinks like that, I feel like there is no...

It can be really hard being forced to team with people who are so different. My team this year is fine. However, I do struggle with my grade level partners. They are both more experienced than I am...

PPP is a great term!

We have PPP vice principal also. No spine and he actually gives into the students. I can't say how many students have talked him out of detentions or even suspensions. He's tell the students things...

Cut and Paste

I was having flashbacks of making handouts by literally cutting and putting them together.

I hope your computer issues are fixed by now. I always have a backup plan because our Internet isn't very...

Lock Door

I feel like these two people work at my school.

Due to the first one, I lock my door, turn my lights out and pretend like I'm not in my room. Time is precious and I cannot have yet another...

Yep, Just Can't Get it Together

I am the same. I usually am pretty excited and have made a bunch of new things for the school year. This year, I stopped myself from doing anything until closer to school. Now that it is bearing down...

Grommit: So True

"Now? I can barely get them to sit through a high interest, high quality, two minute YouTube clip."

I feel the exact same way. We read a few novels of which there are movie adaptations. I try...

I hate being outside also. I like the idea of just doing it and then trying to trade with someone who loves the "fresh air." I wouldn't complain to the principal yet:)

I'd just say something...

I Chant to Myself:

"Keep your mouth shut." I just say that to myself over and over and plaster a fake smile on my face. I have never regretted NOT saying something. However, I can kick myself for all the times I spoke...

I had a meeting last week that I went to. I assumed that we would get our regular rate. However, it turns out that we are not going to get paid. I feel like a fool for showing up. I'm done. We...

I think you have to put it in writing that you want to move somewhere. Then, the building principals meet with you. IF another position opens up, the principals can switch people three months before...

Maybe they should move him onto an "admin cart" since he doesn't have classes. Honestly, this sounds awful. I taught in other rooms for exactly one year. I found it really stressful and I had to be...

To Zia

If I was smart, I probably would.I think by now everyone has our P's cell number. However, if it is not a dire emergency, I just like to follow the procedure and go through the proper channels.

Wong/L and L

I follow Wong's First Day of School procedures. I also use a lot of Teaching with Love and Logic to avoid power struggles.

They Don't Care

At my school, we've been having more and more students seem to not care at all if they do anything. I teach 7th grade ELA and here is what I do:

however, ours in ms have it pretty rough. Students do not know their basic skills so every day is a struggle. I really don't know how they do it day after day. I hear constant complaining about how...

Our "in crowd" is just obnoxious. I wish it was just one but it is legion.

The principal has been friends with these people for life or they go out and drink with him and the VP. They call and...

We have had problem teachers and I don't think any of them got fired. Weirdly, we have had administrators fired and moved for political reasons. Several of them sued and won!

With teachers, it is...

I think 90 minutes is way too long for middle school. We do have that in some grades, but not others. (Which I think is bizarre...)

Anyway, I know what you mean when you feel like one class is...
