I agree with Yaya....the grapevine seems to be better at keeping us informed. I am never notified about such things by admin or the district. (Of course I am required to sign a waiver daily upon...

So against my own volition I am doing per diem sub work in a new (for me) district near my home. Praying that wearing two masks, (cloth and surgical), keeping my distance from students, keeping my...

Sounds nice!

We have one Costco in the city about 45 minutes from me. If only it was in another location. Riots have been going on in that city for over a week now. Last night until 2 am the rioters and police...

Thank you

Thank you all for your feedback. Yes maybe a warehouse position would be good. Maybe I could do that by night and teach my kids by day. I will also use that amazing strategy when applying to retail...

Doesn't Surprise Me

I don't honestly think there is any other position where people are treated as if they are expendable and paid less than a living wage to boot. My district assumes I am returning even though they...

Frustrating

Anyone Else About To Get Hit Hard by School Closings?

Due to the mass paranoia in my area over COVID-19, they are planning to close schools. There have been ZERO cases in my area. Yet this means as a mere hourly/per diem worker I won't be getting...
