That's ridiculous. At our school someone like a custodian or secretary comes around and unlocks the door for teachers who will be absent.

I don't think the school should give substitutes keys to...

That's ridiculous. I would resign my extra-curricular position rather than babysit disruptive students. I have a writing team, and if it were dictated to me that I had to keep everybody, including...

I have two "schoolmares." Imagine my surprise when they are very close to the same as two other posters' bad dreams.

#1 I cannot find my classroom no matter what. Either I can't get to the...

The worst part is that it's not even whether the kids pass or fail. We have value-added, which means that they look at the kids' sixth grade scores and how they fall on a continuum of all the...

Vent about test prep

Hi there. I just have to vent. I resent that the test is half our evaluation, yet there's no incentive for our seventh graders to do well at all. At least one year about five years ago they had a...

Hi. I was where you are now last year, and I am here to give you hope that you can have kids who are totally different and come out on the other side of this.

I am like that as well. I stew from the time I set the eval to the time I do it. I think I am going to schedule an eval on Friday and have it Tuesday or Wednesday just so I have less time to worry...

My kids are generally bad for subs, too. The worst was when I taught high school and came back to discover a kid had set a statue on fire.

We're going the other way. Our PD is getting better. We don't have to show up on a day next semester. Instead, we pick eight hours of our choice, whether it's a tech conference, a book study with...

Yes, our contract guarantees it. We need the alone time to do work and just decompress. There are teachers in our school who have kids do activities over lunch. That's their right, but I don't...

We don't do it except I tell my husband to give to the pound and humane society for my birthday and Christmas. That's a little bit different because he loves it, too.

I eat the school lunch about 10 times a year when they have a few meals I really like. Most of the time I do not like it. It's gotten worse in the years since I began teaching. I usually pack.

We do it old-school because many of our parents don't have smartphones or Internet access. (rural area)

I have Netflix and Amazon Prime. For movies, Amazon Prime seems better. When I watch Netflix, it's mainly for tv shows, whereas I have watched several movies from different eras on Amazon Prime.

I taught in air conditioned and non-air conditioned buildings, and the difference is vast. Sorry if you do not have it. That makes it so rough.

The worst part is that the high school where I...

I agree with Ruby07. This seems like showing off for a video, not anything legitimate.

I used Google sites and found it to be very user-friendly. There's a tutorial on YouTube if you get confused. I learned it as part of a class a few years ago.

I like to have around 8 hours, but sometimes I get up very early, run errands, then take a short nap in the afternoon. I am glad I weaned myself off that somewhat since school starts in 10 days.
