Sharing

Whenever I share, the people I share with take credit for my ideas. It's just rude! I don't share much anymore.

Coworker going admin

My closest coworker has gone admin and I have such mixed feelings. We are good work friends, and watching him jump through hoops and drink the kool-aid is hard. Why do people instantly change the...

Go for it

I switched from middle to high school and I just made sure my certification was in order and went on interviews. I really like high school. Good luck!

Agree

Everything is the teacher's fault. It is so bad in my district that I am hesitant to fail anyone even if they've done no work. It's not worth the stress and aggravation.

Double standard

There's such a double standard with how admins can behave vs expectations of teachers. I hope you get fmla. We were bullied into selecting to come back to the building and do hybrid even though cases...

Micromanaging admins with online learning

I have my online teaching under control and suddenly the admin wants to tell us exactly what to do and how to do it....we've been stripped of any creativity because a few teachers didn't know what to...

growth

You can also address assessing growth - using pre-assessments and tracking how well they play their instrument (or whichever subject). Tracking growth is really important and a great assessment...

broken record

I hate to be a broken record but I agree with the others....say something nice and move on - she will be missed, she was truly one of a kind, etc - no need to bring up anything nasty at someone's...

here's one

Assign whatever you want them to watch/read and then use a "Paul's Reasoning Model" graphic organizer to help them draw conclusions. You can Google it and there are plenty to choose from.

dining alone

I haven't eaten in the teachers' lounge in over 20 years! I saw it as a den of discontent and gossip. I eat in my room an get work done. Nobody (that I know of) thinks I'm unfriendly....I just...

wrong song

If Donny had picked a final song that really showcased his voice, I think he would have won. But I'm happy for the guy that won...I've never heard of T Pain, but he seemed to really need the win in...

Masked Singer

Anyone else watch this weird show? It's fun. I have only successfully guessed a few so far. I figured out Ricki Lake and Joey Fatone.

I think the peacock will win and I think it is Donnie...

If a resume, which is supposed to be you at your very best, has errors, then that is a red flag. With all of the free resources online, anyone can have a flawless resume. It looks bad to have...

I don't teach a math or science class, but I do give partial credit most of the time...just seems like the right thing to do.

Yes!

I used to have to write those, and they were a complete waste of time and resources. Nobody ever read them, and a lot of teachers would add so much fluff to theirs that it was obvious they were...
