Students still need their own spaces.

My first foray into alternative work areas was standing tables that I made myself. None of my students self-selected the standing stations.

I have two corners with squishy floor tiles and big...

This sounds like an untenable situation for everyone. I'm sorry that it makes you feel like you are an outsider.

Is there any way you can get some kind of room dividers to separate your room area...

Sadly, Mean Girls

types are even in education. With those kind of people, you don't have to "do" anything.

flexible, but not every lesson

I group by unit or chapter. Students also need to learn to work through things with different personalities.

I use summative assessments and rank them high to low. Then I split in the middle and...

Sketchnotes where it's done for the Ss?

I checked out the site. To me, it looks like they take current research and go overboard with "supporting" students. These "notes" look more like what you said- coloring pages.

I'm teaching my...

Advocate for yourself with the doctor-

Pester that doctor to get something in writing that you can use to protect yourself and take to a lawyer.

We have managed healthcare here (yuck), and you must be pushy and whiny to get what you...

OPs made excellent points!

I, too, have seen an increase in anxiety and "sensitivity." The child is the one who is hurt in the end if the diagnosis is inaccurate, or no treatment is given.

Children don't persevere often. If...

Princ or Union?

That's an overwhelming amount of paperwork! These days, our school psychologists do nothing but testing. Throw in the legal timelines once a request has been made, and you get admin just pushing the...

I use Quill. (not .com- that sells writing supplies).

My students and I prefer it over NoRedInk because they have to write out the sentence. The combining sentences module really helps their...

I use Quill.

I use for grammar.

I did trials of both NoRedInk and Quill a few years ago. Both the students and I preferred Quill.

It was interesting that my students stated that they believed...

Don't complain.

I understand your pain because I've been there. If others already know, it will just make you look bad. Admin probably knows, but doesn't want to deal with it. I've seen these incompetent coworkers...

More feel this way than ever before

You are not alone. I think that some of what's causing this is social media and how it changes the ways that people connect, or don't.<!--eyebrow-->

In addition to the pressure of meeting the...

Don't try to be everything/do eveything-

Of course, there's the old adage that you can't please everyone all of the time.

As with cutecat's numbers 2 and 4, you will be asked to add more and more to your plate. Education has the biggest...

Hmmm- We're told that we ARE

responsible until the kid gets home or into the custody of a parent/guardian.

We used to even have this be part of behavior assemblies.

I use Bloomz, but I try to keep it informational and positive. It is convenient to use for announcements and the like.

If there is a minor behavior thing, I'll use the messaging function. However,...

Older kid who speaks Spanish-

We had one of those screamers/refusers. If the child is a recent immigrant, the whole world is different. We had an older Spanish speaker get the child to class. Eventually, the need for the older...

In my area there are opportunities to be on a list through the district and to work at franchised centers.

If jobs rotate

then I'd add Line Leader. What about someone who puts papers in a folder for an absent student- First Aid? Also, some type of chief encourager- cheerleader?

by last name

I use last name so that when we do something like a sound-off, it's in record-keeping order.

If I get a new student, I insert that student into the existing line-up by adding a letter 1, 2, 3,...

I understand your pain-

It's good for

getting attention, too.

I use one that has two "ringers," and that allows me to put one in the front and one in the back for better sound coverage.

Here's the title of the one that I got on...

need more info-

1. What are you working on- laptop, tablet, Windows, Mac, iOS, Android...?
2. Do you have a Read/write CD drive?
3. What music editing software do you have?

Have you checked out Rick Morris?...

haven't tried it myself-

When I was considering getting inexpensive whiteboard stuff from a fix-it store, I read that the board can be renewed by applying clear anti-freeze.

I've also heard of adding a thin coat of...
