I am just so amazed

at the sheer number of posts here and at the fact it all started in 2006! I like to revisit this thread sometimes to see if teachers are feeling any better about the profession, and I see that they...

retiring soon, can't wait

This will most likely be my last year. I will have spent 15 years (16, if you include the year I bought) teaching the most needy kids in gang infested neighborhoods in my city. Honestly, I am so...

He sounds

childish to me and selfish. I don't know how you put up with that behavior. I know I couldn't.

Sounds like nepotism

to me. But you really have no recourse if you have no union.

I don't believe

that someone would be fired just for your classroom! There must have been other reasons too. So don't feel bad. I don't clean my room and neither do my students. I wasn't hired to be a cleaner.

I had

33 on the first day of class last year. I rose to 46 at my highest. I finished the year at 32. But I guess I averaged 40 daily. (I had an average of 40 due to the principal expecting the regular 4th...

I understand

how you feel. I once had a dear friend who made the worst choices but then would constantly whine to me about the fallout from those choices. I finally could not take it. I had to drop her. Sad,...

all teachers get paid this way as far as I know. All it takes is a little more planning, but that's what teachers are good at anyway. Also, depending on your district, you won't get checks during...

My district (BCSD) is hiring.

But only in 7th-12th grade. So, if you're single subject, I would apply.

You should check

University of San Diego online classes. I took one last year for 3 units. Only paid $230 too. It was a class on behavior management. It was a little work but it was also fun. It pushed me over...

Why is this?

Why do we still have our Vietnamese, Chinese, and other Asian students score the highest on tests? I'm not asking this to try to cause a fight either. I honestly want to know why. After all these...

According to usage,

the placing of quotation marks around specific words or phrases is to be read as "so called." In other words, when a writer writes something like this, 'If that is an "arrogant" opinion" ....', then...

I am sorry

if I offended you starfish92. I really didn't mean to. I was just speaking about my own feelings. This was just the way I was brought up, like the previous poster said, we considered this to be...

I know I could never

be jealous (or be good friends with) a person who has declared bankruptcy. But, of course, I come from an era when something like that would embarrass the average person and would be hard to live...

It is very clear to anyone

who teaches these days that schools won't do a thing to protect teachers unless they are forced to. I'm sure I would have responded the same way as she did, and I probably would have been arrested...

I remember

many years ago, my heat wasn't working for 3 days during the winter (gets about 30 degrees in the winter here). On the second day of the deep freeze in my classroom, I called the office and told...

fellow teachers sound like a bunch of a--es. Any teacher who would make negative comments about anyone based on race is an idiot. I would try to get out of there as soon as I could.

Do this.

When he starts his behaviors, stop teaching the lesson, pull your well behaved kids, maybe 5 at a time, to an area in the room where you can teach and teach them. Ignore him. Have the rest of the...

There is NO excuse!!

I came from a very poor uneducated family, as many of you know from my other posts. At one point we lived in a barn for 3 years (with the animals). I washed my own clothes and my hair in cheap...

Explain this word choice, please!

I am having a problem teaching my ELLs how to choose the proper word to construct sentences. They will say, "...for we can go to recess." They constantly and repeatedly use "for" instead of "so" no...

First of all, teaching is never what you

think it will be. It is always a surprise, sometimes good and sometimes bad. I will assume you teach in private school (praying with students), so you really have very little recourse. I would get...

Why in the world you even sign off on something like that? I would have refused to sign it.

You can wish

all you want and you can rant all you want but they will never hold parents accountable. The only way anything will ever change in regards to terrible student behavior is when the parents of the...
