Well....

From what I have seen, it is all in who you know. First of all, you will probably have to sub to get a foot in the door. Then build relationships. Volunteer to tutor. Volunteer at summer school. Tell...

I do it as a last resort

I always ask them what sound they hear. Step by step, they usually get it.
I prefer invented spellings because they keep the flow going. I usually do writer's workshop and they have a first draft...

I don't think that they have it all so together as they pretend to. We all need each other. I think it is a matter of appearances.

Wow!

I am sorry that it is so hard where you are teaching. I have turned down jobs at private schools because they do not pay a living wage. Instead I am subbing for even lower pay in hopes of getting a...

Teasing

Hi, Everyone!

I have taken a long-term sub assignment in a 1st/2nd grade classroom for the last 6 weeks of the year. The problem I have is that the class has no sense of community. There is one...

And shouldn't they all be nice, and put us at ease. That way they will see us doing our normal work as opposed to stressed and anxious work.
Congratulations on your good observation!

What is natural?

It is the natural progression for a child to grow away from parents. Some take longer than others. And some have issues that get in the way. Autism is a spectrum disorder. I think it is more common...

Learning names

We have talked some about this on this discussion board. I make every effort to get there and learn names. I use the strips on the desk, or the notebooks inside to make my own charts. If they change...

Awkward....for all.

Well, two students, both small and slim, both very blond with glasses, both short hair with big bangs over the eyes, both in a royal blue sweatshirt. So I called one by the name of the other. Except...

HI, I am going to my district's career fair Sat. I have a resume and plenty of references, but I need a "Letter of Introduction"--don't even know how to start. What should it say? Is there a good...

Google

Google is kind of scarey. It shares pictures with various devices when I never even knew it would. Just don't make a video! Grow up. I am not a prude, but if your job is important, you have to think...

Funny, I was about to post about my experience with ObamaCare and the website.

Long story short it has taken me close to 4 months to finally get to a point where I got to see the prices. Their...

2 ideas

Two of my favorites:

Have them take the "Big Five" personality test. You can find it on line.

Until I know them

I always start out mean. I establish rules and make sure they know that I what I expect. Then as the day goes on, I can loosen up.

Agree

I agree with everyone else. I am subbing and have turned down three so-so jobs so far--all with insurance and with kids. But I want a full time teaching position with my own class. And the union...
