I agree that it's not weird and I think it's interesting that we all see "vacations" in a different way. I go to Switzerland every 2 years or so but I don't see it as a "vacation" because really I'm...

My name is no.

This is an insignificant post but this is one of the things that got me through the week. I've always said "no" to my students a lot because I'm strict and many of them don't get it at home. Well,...

I did not study for either of those tests. I just used the practice test at the end of each study guide from the company that makes the test. The Professional Education exam seemed like common sense...

I find that ridiculous. At my school, teachers wear jeans whenever they want and we don't pay anything. I typically don't wear jeans because I don't want my students seeing me at their level but I do...

I think given that you've been teaching for 3 years, it makes sense that your mind would do this to you. Teachers today are basically being taught to NEVER touch students in any way. I was even told...

The protocol at my school is to turn it into the office which I'm across the hall from but if I wasn't I probably wouldn't do it. Even so, I usually take it and hold in my pocket or LOCK it in a...

I don't have any advice for how to approach it but I agree that the subway with that many people could easily be a problem. If it's busy, it could be really easy for a student to get stuck at the...
