Yep 😢

This is an awful truth everywhere I think. They refuse to do the work and we have to pull them through no matter what. It is disheartening and discouraging. I just can’t grasp the complete apathy and...

Students too

I was a regular Ed (elective) teacher last spring when our district went virtual to a situation that was, basically, “pass them at all costs and don’t worry if they work for the remaining 8 weeks“.

Me too

I’m starting my 15th year but ready to quit as our schools are going back in person (yes in Florida where the virus is out of control). And our school board is also listening to the parents that...

Sorry but you all are debating as if any politician cares about teachers’ health and well being. The only thing that would keep us safe is parents not wanting to send their kids to school. And they...

This is all very difficult and a logistical nightmare.

However, for those suggesting that the exposure is the same under this model, consider that it is STILL less exposure than the traditional...

An Idea

I’ve had good luck making assignments a “quiz” in Google classroom which has you create the “quiz” in Google forms. You can name or call it anything you want and google forms allows you to do...

I could have posted this!


Just read the post. I’m actually going sooooooo easy (as directed). Like one or two ridiculously easy assignments all week but do they do them? No

Yes I teach 9th grade and it is ridiculous. They can not be bothered to do ANYTHING! I watch them like a hawk but by 6th period there are always photos floating around that they are using to copy...

What if?

Imagine for a moment that these teachers did “fix” the grades and made everything all sunshine and rainbows for these parents. The student didn’t really earn that A and then this continues until SAT...

Meanwhile in Florida......

Today the legislature votes on two things:

1) Decertify the teacher's union. They are calling them public unions in the language, but exempting police and fire. So that only leaves the teachers...

Bottom Line

The bottom line is that they will work you until you break. Pretty much true for corporate America too. But in teaching, I have found time and time again that the more you do, the more they ask. This...

We have and "ABC School Referral" that we are suppose to use for everything that is not an egregious violation of district policy. That way, the student gets a referral, but it is nowhere on record...

Florida does have teaching jobs, just maybe not in the most ideal situation. I was offered a job by phone in Duval and Volusia counties. In more desirable districts, I think that new teachers have an...

not sure what to do

I've been in elementary for the last 11 years and same building. I have been needing a change so I added certifications and applied all over. I got a new one in secondary within the district. No...

You are me!

I started taking secondary subject area exams back in February to try to switch from elementary to high school after 11 years! For the life of me, I can't figure out why each test costs $200 when...

Title 1 - what do I need to know?

Looking at possibly moving to a title 1 school. While I know that things are different at title 1 schools, I just don't know exactly what those differences are and what the extra workload entails.

I have one that I constantly redirect and yet can do literally NOTHING on a sheet of paper for over 30 minutes. Long year indeed.
