There is no way I am going to be with children from 7:30 to 3:30 without a break. Specials, lunch, recess, etc. are the only time one can get a breather. I would only be comfortable giving students...

Joining would be beneficial for the reasons others have mentioned. The only concern is that if you recommend someone to be hired and they turn out to be awful, you will be blamed (or blame yourself)....

Could not agree more with all the previous posts.

A serious question: if parents can work every summer even though their kids are home, why do they need physical schools to reopen now during the...

If some teachers get satisfaction from being on the phone with students, that is good. They should not complain about that situation, as it was their own choice to go above and beyond.

We are allowed to contact principals for open jobs, but it is rare for any principal to actually respond or even open an unsolicited email. The best way to get a job is to somehow stand out with a...

Yes! It is a good sign.

The second interview might ask for teaching demonstrations. Best case scenario is that it is a formality. Congratulations and hope you get the job! <!--shootingstars-->
