Struggles

When you say that no teacher has more than 1 test on his/her shoulders, does that mean that each teacher is either a reading or writing teacher?

I teach both reading and writing classes, and the...

No jeans here

We are not allowed to wear jeans unless our student senate is doing a fundraiser, in which case we have to pay $3 or $5. I don't mind not wearing jeans; I am a very petite woman and already blend in...

We don't have much time in our rooms either (about 1 1/2 days, I think). Thankfully, our principal sent out a letter over the summer to inform us of the plans for the week before kids come back (we...
