35 years ago

That sounds so long ago! The title song led me to the Psychedelic Furs, a band I grew to really like. It's one of those movies that you watch whenever you see it's on.

It's a good price

I think $90 is very fair and even on the low side.

Thank you, DiamondGirl, for that great list - there are some on there that I've never heard of and that's what I need. Thanks, too, Lottalove - our district used to pay for MobyMax but doesn't...

Websites needed

Can anyone please recommend sites for low-level third graders (working at first-to-second grade levels) to use for independent practice? Games or any other type of practice is welcome. I could...

not very reasonable

I'm also teaching special education fifth graders and they have no problem using the same Zoom link every day at the same time.
If the time that each group meets with you changes - Monday at 9:30,...

History education

The U.S. is a mess when it comes to teaching history. It's left to states and local BOEs to figure out more than any other subject and we have no state tests for that content, making it a 'less...

Do some work

I like tctrojan's idea.
I think redoing the work or similar assignments is absolutely called for here. Just giving zeroes allows them to get out of the work. Actually doing work gives them a bit of...

Sounds like a handful

I'm annoyed for you. He's still way overstepping his role. It also sounds like he has a large ego. Never trust him for a moment.

Texas Electricity

That is shockingly awful and is the reason government regulation and oversight is needed for basics such as electricity. The rich get richer, the middle class and the poor pay the price and not...

Union or Admin.?

In my school the union would prefer that they sit down with both teachers first. Sometimes people have been berated for going to admin. without letting the union try to resolve the issue. I recommend...

Way overstepped

It stinks that he overstepped his place and put you in tears. I think you should go into the meeting as a broken record - he misunderstood you, just keep repeating that. The mistake was his. You know...

Too much is not a good thing

Wow, I hope for your sake that someone comes to their senses. Those extra written steps will take up time that could be better used coming up with engaging lessons. I have to admit that I agree that...

Personal Space

These are funny.
My call:
Kitty has no personal boundaries. She is, quite literally, walking all over everyone. I am particularly concerned that her backend is often up in her classmate's faces...

My thought

I think it's something like mlady4 said. The classes in that grade level become unbalanced.
To be completely honest, I've been in situations where teachers of a grade level didn't have the highest...

Dismissive Doctors

These stories (and yesterday's original) are frustrating to read!
Here's mine:
My husband stuck with a doctor for years after I left the guy for being rude. Then DH developed an illness....

Instant smoothies

My FB has had adds for instant smoothie products lately. One of them is called evive and looks really good. You pop pieces into a cup, pour milk over it, let it melt, and drink. I'd love to know if...

Fifth grade, the musical year we remember

Now I'll be singing this song all day. At least I don't have to concentrate to remember the lyrics!
You made me remember a class party at the end of fifth grade when the class was singing along to...

DNA sites

I've done both and it's interesting that they don't entirely agree on my DNA results. 23andme has me at 50.5% British & Irish, 19.6% French & German, and then smaller percentages for other areas....

Bare bones likely means they were afraid and overly cautious - what a statement about our country today.
My school seems to be very different from many others. We are encouraged to bring up recent...

What's the concern?

I don't have a subscription to that site, so I'm curious what's in the story that you're not thrilled about.

Get to know her 1:1?

I wonder if being virtual is contributing to this problem. We used to get to know each other through small conversations in the hallway, the faculty room, and popping into each other's classrooms but...

Tomato products

I don't eat tomatoes or ketchup. However, I do eat tomato sauce on spaghetti and pizza.
I don't know why. :confused:

This isn't good for students

Honestly, until there are real consequences imposed at the administrative level this year will instill some very bad habits and expectations in many students. If the administration of a school was to...
