I use the velcro dots, but I put the nametags on the front of the desk, not the top of the desk. I realize this only works if all the desks are facing the front though.

Count your blessings you can watch them at your house. We still have the people come and lecture about those things for 4-5 hours in a boiling hot auditorium.

After watching Marie Kondo on Netflix, I got rid of a lot of stuff this year lol. If I hadn't used it the previous year or two, there was no reason to hold on to it any longer. That's probably the...

Daily 40 minute prep at the same time; however, one prep a month can be used by the principal for meetings. (Usually a post-observation meeting). We also get a daily 30 minute lunch.

I've been on a toxic team before. Thankfully, I also had a friend on the team so I wasn't alone.

With hate crimes and murder rates dramatically spiking for non-binary individuals, I feel it's the least we can do to use preferred pronouns when addressing people.
