Good advice

Given above, but I would also talk with the child's parent. I teach in a small district that my own kids attend. Coworkers have taught my kids and I've taught several of theirs. I would talk to...

Eye twitch

I get an eye twitch. When I was in school we had a math teacher with a twitch. His back pocket wallet would jump around when he was writing on the board. I wonder if that was stress?! Lol!

Not sure either

We are week 3 of hybrid, but I also have 8 full remote kids. They've all fallen into my trap of doing the first easy assignment, so I know those kids should have access to the internet and my...

They're expected to read, don't worry!

My students are expected to read and outline their reading, 2-3 sections a week. If the book doesn't open on their chromebooks I provide a hardcover book. It's just I got dumped on when the school...

I just wish the school would make suggestions for these families instead of pretending the problem doesn't exist. The teachers are getting training on the latest available technology, but we can't...

I've been back to school 3 weeks and have been so crazy busy, but I thought I was doing fine. After catching up on grading and seeing how many aren't turning work in, along with responding to a...

Different perspectives....

You can look at this from so many points of view! I have been the frustrated teacher who got talked to by my principal because a parent called and complained that her daughter wasn't learning in my...

Not a good fit- lol!

I'm at such a small school that I'm the only science teacher that is certified to teach what I teach. If a student and I aren't a good fit, oh get what you get! I hope they put him in a...

How many other teachers have either left without saying anything or said something (you don't always know) and nothing was done or changed. Nothing changes at my school unless a parent is...

My principal....

I am still waiting for a reply from my principal about a fairly important issue (eating breakfast in a science lab room for social distancing) that I don't think he thought about. No response. I...

Talk to principal...

I'd try talking to, or writing a well thought out email, to the principal listing all the reasons why your plan is better and why hers won't work. Stroke his ego and say you know he already gave an...

Getting moved in....

My new science room is ready to move in! I am so overwhelmed with everything to move back in, plus supplies from the retired teacher who I am getting half his workload added to mine. Tons of cool...

Math teaching science!

Patman, it does sound like teachers are being treated as warm bodies and not trained professionals. My school hired a long term sub a few years ago to teach Spanish and she couldn't speak...

Crazy stuff happening...

Crazy stuff happening at schools. My school didnt fill positions emptied by retirement. I get a 50% workload increase. I teach high school, now also teach 7th grade science. I am very stressed,...

Assignment vs materials

Last year was the first year I used Google Classroom. I too found that students could find what I posted as an assignment easier than what I posted as materials because of the due date setting. ...

My 14 year old daughter finally realized how very different back to school was going to be. The school she attends I teach at, and they just released their tentative plans. Half the students attend...

I can't stand it!

Yes. You're right. Why are teachers everywhere being left in the dark until the last minute and then expected to work miracles? I want to be getting ready for classes now, but I do not want to...

It's good to recognize when you're not in a good place mentally. I think some people don't see when they need to stop and take care of themselves. I could have written your post. We just received...

My strategy too...

I definately don't plan on doing anything noteworthy this year. Stick to the lesson. Keep it simple. Follow safety protocol. Minimize my stress. Survive. I feel like this makes me a bad...

Me too!

I was doing a good job of avoiding the drama lately, but then my dad stopped by to visit and wanted to talk about something my husband posted on Facebook. I don't know if I'm more annoyed with my...

That's so annoying!

Maybe call not email?

I suggest calling so you can get a response on how to come to your room, return laptop, etc. My principal admitted in a faculty zoom that he can't get through all his emails right now because there...

Depends on school

Our retiring teachers are not being replaced. Positions eliminated. Larger classes and more preps for me next year. Lucky I have a job.

Thank you

Thank you to those who replied to my post. It just all overwhelmed me yesterday. I've got all the previous teacher's plans, worksheets, etc. I'm sure I'll be fine, but I so dislike having no extra...

Panic setting in

What would you do to keep the panic from setting in if you were me? I was informed that in addition to teaching 9th grade biology and labs that I will be teaching 7th grade life science because...
