I think we are 1 of the few places

with more teachers without teaching jobs. There are not enough kids in the area. A few people are waiting for me to die or retire...

Good for you on being ready to roll!

It is sad we can't trust our coworkers.
That is great your P has done an about face though.
I am wondering if he hasn't already figured her out.
Didn't she start some crap the end of last yr...

and yeah! ( like no duh!)

We have title, interventionists, sped teachers and aides w/ nothing better to do than gossip while the teachers have classes to teach. Many have not seen kids for 2 weeks.

Your P is an A__ ___!

The word yell is very subjective.
I'd give the sub the benefit of the doubt.
Every1 forgets something sometimes.
You're even more likely to forget when tired or sick.
I bet your A__ P forgets...

I find it so sad seriously

that so many teachers have to take anxiety and depression meds to be able to do their jobs! It really makes me mad. Why do we ( as teachers) allow people to put us under so much pressure?

Nope! I would not allow that even in elem.

When you have kids like that, you need to have what I call brainwork. It needs to be done in written form.
I know 40% of the kids will never get to it. Most will start it. Expect that 1 to finish...

When I moved states, I went

from a high performing and functioning school, to one of the worst schools in the best district in the state. So, I can relate. Stupid parents- Try not to let them get to you. Many of them had a hard...

Way too extreme to me...

I never even heard of a bubble mouth. Assigned order is ridiculous too. My kids can be pulled anytime by a number of pple. ( OT, PT, Speech, Sped, Title) There goes that system out the window.

When I have enough money or

croak on the Insurance pay out is greater if I do that! :) I am not done yet, but this yr can be my last. I'd prefer 1 more for the $$$, but may enjoy life more by ending it after this yr....

Unprofessinal to the max

I am the teacher who says not to

In many years of teaching, I have had to "defend myself 2x from teachers who were liars. (After they told lies about me.) That...

I let mine expire 1x

I never thought life would bring me back to that state. It took extra classes and exams to get recertified. It took over a yr too because DEpt of ED is so hard to reach here too. It looks like you...

Your stories never cease to amaze me. I remember when you wrote about the parents who wanted you to create leadership opportunities for their kid.
I wonder how many of your parents have paid bribes...

Yes, I am pretty sure it was a scam....

Even if it was not, the kid lied to me. He said, they had gone to pay for their groceries and were 5.00 short. I did not see a cart or groceries anywhere. If that had been the case, I might have told...

I am sorry!

I know the more kids, the less space, and more potential problems.
Since it seems to be so close to the norm, I'd probably force myself to "suck it up" too! Maybe 5 of them will be rocket...

That is a good attitude because it can be

done. The overhead was like gold to me before Smartboards. That is a bummer you did not get 1 because they make it a lot easier than the whiteboard, but having it on your resume will be priceless!...

Does your state have a limit

for student/pupil ratios? I think I might make a fuss and get in I have had 34 in my room many yrs ago.

I stand in agreement w/ Gromit and the

other posters. The only different thought I had was there are some parents who nitpick yr after yr. Our P would probably let that parent be anonymous because he doesn't want to hear, " That woman...

I'm sorry, but I have never heard of it.

We are getting new types of assessments too this yr and I do not even have a clue of the names yet. It is a bummer when you get to that expert ( or even proficient level) in anything and it...
