This is me, too

All. Day. Long. I am shushing them all the time. It's driving me crazy. I don't understand why they can't sit quietly for even a few seconds. Honestly, they seem to want to fill in every transition...

Itís better than others

I like ClassDojo better than other systems. I think the way you approach it with kids and parents makes a big difference in peopleís opinions, though. I set the expectation at the beginning of the...

We recognize it as a sign of stress at my school. It happens to most of us at some time or another. I've got one eye twitching last week and this week and I also have a lot on my plate right now, so...

sometimes people are just like that

I have a good friend who can just be that way for no direct reason. She's not happy about where her DD is living, so that can translate into not being happy with the school her DGD is attending. She...

Ditto the InstaInk recommendations

Our ink was costing us way too much! I bought a much cheaper HP printer/copier/fax machine than my old one and now have the InstaInk program. I've got the HP 2600 series printer and although it's...

A thought I use

With those types of students I always think to myself 'If someone is going to leave frustrated today, it isn't going to be me.' Move her away from her audience as much as possible. Sound like a...

I think I'm in the minority

I think that unless the teacher has a valid reason for not allowing the nickname, she's missing the point -is this student learning the curriculum? She's an educator, not a boss. I would begin by...

My personal list of words and phrases

little man
woah (and all of its various spellings these days)
literally (when something cannot be done literally at all!)
calling students 'friends' (which I know has been a PT topic in the...

I think in many words it would be equivalent to someone experiencing that quality. Friendship / you are experiencing being friends, internship / she is experiencing being an intern, apprenticeship /...

Walking in a line

I would really hate that. One thing that occurs to me is that when you walk with your hands behind your back it's harder to catch yourself when you trip and fall. That makes it a safety issue in my...

needmyjob: That's unbelievable that your administration did observations! It's a sign of rigid thinking - we planned it for this day.....the situation changed.....we planned it for this day. No...

I'm Grumpy

I feel so grumpy right now. This was the first week of school and there's been so little communication from our administration. If we ran our classrooms like they run our school, we'd get awful...

In 4th/5th/6th grades my kids' P.E. teachers taught them all the 'party' dances - the Macarena, Cha Cha slide, Cotton Eye Joe, etc. Both the boys and the girls seemed to like it or at least not mind...

My school tried to save money by buying 1-ply. While toilet tissue isn't usually a matter of conversation, it quickly became the hot topic of the year. If they thought we wouldn't notice, they were...

No personal experience

Go Math! will be new for us this year, too. There is a FB group specifically for third grade Go Math! and most of the teachers there seem to prefer skipping chapter 1 and starting with chapter 3. I...

Gabriel's a cutie

I just had to say how adorable he is! I went to a Jewish preschool myself and although I was obviously very young, I know that what stands out in my mind were things like the Purim program and the...

It's the ventriloquist hummers that get me every time. I can *never* figure out who the heck is humming. My school has some crazy talented hummers.

same thing

I also received sneakers from Kohl's that had the shoplifter plastic thingy. It was about a year ago. I just took them back to the store with my receipt and they removed it, but I felt like if I had...

I wish I could.....

I'd start answering every unreasonable request with "I wish I could do that, but my schedule just doesn't allow it. Please let administration know about your need so that they can try to get you some...

Learn and grow

Just like we want and expect from our students, teachers also need to learn and grow. Last year was a steep learning curve. This year you can grow from that experience. The first year teaching is...

Thanks so much. I've had something in my cart for two months, just waiting for a sale. I finally bought it and am very excited to use it this year! (Teachers are kinda' crazy nerds, aren't we?)
