I got a taste of this too..

Iím a fairly new teacher, and my co-worker and I had some fun activities planned with a few different prizes. I was flabbergasted at how rude the students were complaining about the prizes and just...

Donít fall for it

I am a full time teacher now, but I subbed for a year or so until I got hired. I covered two long-term sub positions, and both schools had openings and did not hire me. I saw it all the time with...

I agree with Greyhound Girl

As unfortunate as it is, it seems obvious that they are doing this to you on purpose for whatever reason. New teachers should not be getting classroom or positions over you. If the next year looks...

I agree

As a parent I had my childís preschool and kindergarten teacher do home visits, and I felt extremely uncomfortable like I was being judged- even though I had nothing to hide and had a perfectly nice...

I agree

I did the whole flexible seating thing last year, and while it looks good in theory, itís a behavior management nightmare. Our students have Chromebooks at all times, and when they are sitting around...

Be Careful

I subbed two years before I got the full time job I have now. I had the same problem, but now I donít. The kids just act that way with subs. My advice, though, donít sub too much at schools where you...

Amen

I'm with you! I have this one parent who has emailed me 3 times over his precious daughter, telling me that I entered in grades wrong. No, she didn't turn in the work, or she came home crying because...

Back to School Night

I'm a new teacher, and we are having back to school this week. Am I supposed to distribute anything? Do I just meet everyone and talk about the class, or should I give a welcome letter? I was...

I agree with Greyhound Girl

I subbed all last year, and I got a teaching job this summer for next year. I had a long term sub job for 3 months that was the same grades I will be teaching now. So while I was resentful and bitter...

I was thinking the same today!

I am starting my first year as a teacher, and my husband is already planning 3 day weekends at the start of the year to travel to see his family. He leaves his job at work, so he has no idea how much...

I agree with TLC

I know it seems like she may be incompetent, but she may have just been nervous. All of the acronyms get confusing. I had a similar situation in my interview, but luckily I was still hired. I have a...

No way!

No way! Too cluttered! I hate flex seating too. Students need to realize that life isn't always going to let you do what you want, sit where you want, have everything on screens, etc. A simple...

You have given me great advice here! Thank you so much! Wow, I did not know that there could be that many evaluations. Thank you for the heads-up. I found the rubrics they will use to evaluate me...

I saw what you've described firsthand

I am sorry that you're going through this! I am a new teacher for this upcoming year, but I subbed all last year, and I saw many of the behaviors you have described. The paras were oftentimes lazy,...

Definitely!

They gave me time to even go to another interview the next week. HR is usually really helpful. You definitely want to know pay, benefits, etc. before accepting, and they will have a formal discussion...

Yes

Yes, if they are not doing any more rounds of interviews, and she said you were the candidate, you have the job. The principal passes on to HR and the Board who they want, and they will need your...

Thank you also for the tips about grading. I also found it to be incredibly daunting to constantly grad, give formative feedback, and assess every single thing I had the students do for me. These...

Thank you!

Yes, you're so right! I am limited in experience, but I have enough to know that classroom management is your number one priority. You can't even even excel with the content if you can't control...

Your intuition

Your intuition is probably right. Your mentor, and perhaps others, may be jealous or resentful. I have had this impression before, as well. Take it as a compliment, and share your great ideas here!!

I was going through the same thing but

I did something different, and I got hired. I have been turned down for 6 straight interviews for the next school year, so I evaluated what I was doing in the others, and I let myself be vulnerable...
