I did this 4 years ago.

I went from 5th to 1st and it was eye-opening! As much as I loved my littles, I am moving up to middle school this next year. Talk to your new teammates, I was blessed to work with some wonderful...

New to MS too

I'm also moving to middle school after 4 years of 1st grade! I taught 5th grade for 3 years prior to that. So ready to move up to the older kids. I will be checking this sight a lot!

Not 5th

But I am moving to 7th grade ELA next year. A little scared of these Guidebooks. I've tried looking over the material and it is so confusing!

The app is probably Find my IPhone. I used it to locate my iPad after a student hid it with the intention of taking it home.

Louisiana

LA only pays for 25 days. That's why retiring teachers use up their days throughout the year. I know of one who was able to take off every Monday and Friday for the entire second semester.

Yep!

Especially if the principal hates you and wants you to leave. They are drastic moves like 5th to preK or 1st to 4th. You have to pack up your room and learn a whole new curriculum. I'm on my 2nd move...

We are allowed to do fun field trips

for behavior, grades, reaching goals, etc. We've gone skating, bowling, and to the movies. We always go to the park on these trips, and when it's warm they get to play in the water.

A lot hs changed the last few

months. VAM is pretty much dead. It's been postponed till Fall 2016. There will be a new governor by then. Can't imagine anyone continuing with his idiocy.

Some school systems are looking at...

If you do multiple choice tests

look up Gradecam.com. Seriously saved me with benchmark testing and weekly tests. I only have to hand grade short answer and anything written. It's free to try. I just got 3 months free.

Pbis

Anyone else think that behavior has gotten worse since PBIS was started? I've been teaching long enough to have seen what it was like before this "wonderful" program. There were always kids that...

So me!

I tripped walking upstairs to my classroom in front of janitors who were installing a handrail at the time. I laughed my @ss off! It was embarrassing, but so hilarious!

I have been hearing

from administrators that this is the state's way of "quietly" bowing out of VAM. By postponing it for two years it can die a quiet death. The trouble where I am is that many administrators wrote the...

My son

is an introvert. I knew he was when he started crawling. He would actually crawl to his room, shut his door and play by himself. His roommates say they never see him!
