T is for Teacher: TEACHER SHIRTS

i used to have a shop on Zazzle that was very popular (especially in August), but I discontinued using them. I am now using TeePublic. Take a look!

TeePublic shirts are awesome quality, and their...

The Success of Remote Learning

My district has been on remote learning since March. I feel like the teachers in my school are doing a tremendous job teaching under these conditions. There are bumps though. I've pretty much come to...

Sometimes you have to call them out...

I have a student who puts his iPad on a table NEXT TO the couch. All throughout the day we're constantly telling him to sit up and/or come into view. He's basically lying down on the couch. His mom...

My Motto has always been...

to take care of IEP students first. That means in past years when I had large groups, there were instances when I would have to decline additions from reg. ed. or even drop a reg. ed. student when I...

Is Anyone Worried About Emotional Health? (Long)

I'll just come right out and say it- I am in one bad place and I'm just wondering how many of you out there are in a similar position as we near the beginning of school.

I would tend to think...

Super Teacher Shirts

Long story short..... I used to have a teacher shirt shop on Zazzle.
They were inconsistent with their products so I deleted my store.
One of the shirts everyone seemed to like were the Super...

There are some places you just don't go.

Religion and politics. Guess what? My wife and I don't agree on either.
We love each other AND LIKE EACH OTHER because we agree not to talk about it. I keep my comments to myself and so does she.

I suspect...

this will lead to all kinds of law suits and union action. I understand the thinking. Special education is a tough nut when doing remote learning. The positive part is that all children have a good...

Your Concerns Are Justified

I'd like to be positive, but I'm too much of a realist. We're going to face many more obstacles (some very dangerous) with a return to buildings. I know many districts are starting the year remotely...

I like this idea...

It certainly eliminates the problem of transitioning and keeping schedules in tact. Yes, the only problem is that they would need to connect within their quarantined classrooms. The aspect of not...

What the Hade. I'll Bite.

You want petty?

Near my house there is a small branch that is hanging from a power line. It's right outside of the service garage entrance for a local country club. I drive past it every day. IT'S...

Totally See Where You're Coming From

I'm a resource teacher and I'm sure I will have to push into rooms rather than taking groups out during the early stages. All teachers are different. I work with some that aren't very life smart and...

I agree.

Especially with other districts starting remotely. It's a tough choice, but I'd choose leaving as well. I'm set to retire next year. I've thought to myself many times if I will walk and retire early...

I've Wondered as Well...

This is a very good question and one of the reasons that school districts have to be stupid to open without a vaccine. Students, staff and teachers are all open to legal action against individual...

I'm With You

There is no perfect plan, but the safest thing to do is continue remote learning. Yeah it sucks. Yeah it isn't as good as in person, but I just think about all the instructional time that will be...

The Return: Doesn't Anyone in Power Understand Data?

First and foremost, I want to wish all of my fellow educators a 20-21 school year as safe and frustration-free as possible. Some of us have it better than others at this point, so it's important to...

Tough Call, but....

safety has to be the main priority. Of course, this depends on whether your district is implementing masks as mandatory or a recommendation.

Coup d'é·tat CoWorker

Hey! It's been a long time since I've posted anything, but man, I NEED TO VENT.

Long story, short. We have space issues at my school. I've had my own room for over 30 years. Now, as a resource...

I would start out this way

by reading short sentences that can be backed up with comprehension questions like…..

The black dog ran into the house.


1. What color was the dog?
2. Where did the dog run?

My assumption

is that your district is blocking the images, not the iPad. No matter what the settings are on the device, you won't be able to get them. They are blocked from ever getting to you period. I'd check...

Hi Teach72,
You didn't say if you wanted paid or free apps, so let me comment on that first. I've been using iPods & iPads for a few years now. Money is tight and our first inclination is to look...
