No ideas to add

I worry that it is a lose-lose situation for all of us--staff and students--GenEd and SpEd--alike.

I am concerned that all of the speeches from Fauci are focus on concerns about the kids, safety...

She makes a good point though.

Back years ago, before I was a sub or a teacher, I worked in a popular tourist destination in the midwest. When I started, the tourist season was late May through early November. We would file and...

I am concerned too about the

unintended consequences for some of the students in another way that I've never seen mentioned so far... Medication abuse and overuse, possibly overdoses, etc.

We all have "those" parents--the...

Not the norm here for sure.

My paras are discouraged from/not allowed to do any of that. In one district, it was even specified in the contract. They are to assist with the lessons and curriculum...

You're on the right track...

It sounds like you know what to do--You are right so far: Calm yourself then gather your thoughts. THEN, ask the relevant questions.

Since some of this is new--new levels, new content, the "new...

I agree with Teabreak

you can make goals based on his ability to attend to an activity of your choice at the table. If you can't get him to stay at the activity, you can't expect much progress. So even if he just...

I think that this CV makes

an exception to the old rules of unemployment. People who don't normally get it at all are getting it now so I think this means subs will get it even when you usually do not. Like a PP mentioned,...

I am in a stand alone building

so I can enter if I wish. I will probably go in this coming week and begin to pack. Depending on how much sorting and piddling I do, it takes either one good full day or 2-3 short days.

I might...

I am a SpEd teacher

with 2 paras. We are not requiring anything in particular.

Distance Learning unpopular opinion, Part II

MsBTexas had a post about an Unpopular Opinion about missing the kids...

Here is my Unpopular Opinion... We are doing too much! Even if we are in a District doing very little.

Well, I've never been a traditionalist before

so joining the Unpopular Opinion definitely doesn't bother me now.

This is very true for me too:

All of it may change in the next few days

if the IDEA waiver occurs.

I am so torn. I do not want anything to jeopardize the IDEA rights of our students but we cannot work with the students under these conditions. So, to me, ideally,...

I think we are doing it exactly right!

We sent out items and ideas to families with the intention to maintain and/or reinforce current content mastery at all levels. We have no expectations beyond that.

We will not collect or grade...
