I think Kat has it right.

I agree with this..but also add coworkers. Coworkers talk and admin shouldn't always listen but we know it happens. I am very out of the loop in my present position but I still hear some...

It is possible I supposed...

I have only subbed in three districts and ended up in a full time position at each one.

Most schools and most teachers are grateful for subs, especially good ones--even if we sometimes fail to...

Not really just one

one defining moment but a strange week for us.

;)On that Monday morning last March, we were told to prepare a packet of work to send home with the kids for "two weeks" worth of work and to have...

I too think that is the case.

For me, I had some self-induced anxiety in the upper grades but not in elementary. Times have changed. Back then, I didn't know if we were rich or poor. I didn't know when Mom or Dad fought...

We have been in person all along

In the buildings, PK-5th do not have a mask mandate but some parents prefer it. The teachers started with a mask but are not truly faithful to it.

6th-12th are in cohorts to lessen travel place...

I don't prefer it

but I do think it is here to stay in some form.

I think we crossed a bridge with the covid cautions that were needed at the time but will not go away now.

Education is constantly evolving and...

Pish posh

I didn't start teaching until 40, my next school at 46, and a third school (my present district) at 50. Now 6 years in, I need to teach about 5 more years before I quit.

But, if you feel you...

Wow. NO ideas.

In those early years, like that, if I could get my student to memorize the names of all the Team members, what they do, and how to introduce them, they wouldn't need to be in SpEd. Some team members...

It is different

Like a PP said, it is more supervision, less teacher-led activities.

Be brave and stay firm if you are faking it...Be friendly but not a friend. Some HSers still need boundaries defined for...

Me too

I would respond with B and possibly offer to consider C at some later date. Ask her to consider waiting until (xxx date--so many days back F2F,) and you will look into it if she still feels that way...

It is tough for me as well

I just want to prod them along and have to fight over-"helping" them myself. We just have to remember that some kids just have a slower processing speed--some kids struggle with latency issues. Who...

Both yes.

But we always lived in rural areas or small towns and there is no public transportation--even now. I have never lived in a place where there was organized public transportation. Plus we were farm...

Give yourself time and space

I feel that way about criticism too. I know it is inevitable at some point in any career but still hurts when it occurs.

Essentially, your computer recognizes the SB as a second screen. You need to...

We allow them

We have teachers, students, and parents all wearing them. They are popular around town as well. We are small and rural so we appreciate anyone trying to cover with anything.
