Time!!!

Not that finding the faculty member who can recite the alphabet backwards and the highly relevant two hour training over a program I've used three years now aren't incredibly useful to me, but open...

Noobs

...and this contributes to the micromanaging coming down the pipes. Those, with nothing but hopes of being the next Ron Clark immediately, require all the extra hand-holding and "checks" that are...

You aren't alone in your sentiments. While attending these showers isn't mandatory, we are all called down to begin with and must then make a tactful exit. I didn't even know the last teacher we had...

Sarcasm

I think many people confuse sarcasm with rudeness. I'm never sarcastic with my students until I'm certain they understand my motivation - but I'm still quick to talk with anyone who looks defeated by...

Eval scoring ?

I have to do the dreaded self-scoring for an unannounced I had (last one, thank God). I'll preface my question with the knowledge of what the process is SUPPOSED to be (reflection, constructive...

Worst Year

No, you very much aren't alone. The only thing keeping me returning to my classroom is the knowledge that I cannot lose my salary/insurance. I'm only 8 years in, so retirement is a far off dream. I...

What a difference....

Deliberate Anxiety

While I get the concept of deliberate practice, I'm 100% not comfortable having to do it. I've had heartburn since last night knowing I'll have to "act out" how I'll introduce things first thing this...

Have you met yet? I was going to recommend that you definitely take all the documentation of your successes. I agree that the P's issue should be gently mentioned. She's not hesitating to throw...

Guess I Suck

Schedule changes last week displaced students and all of my classes gained or lost some. Pod teacher also absent so add an extra 5-10 kids each period. It's been awful. Same 5-6 kids being so...

Too Soon

Back to school tomorrow from Fall Break. Was up until 11:50p again cutting and pasting the weekly powerpoint (56 slides in all), dragging out 1 page I-ready lessons to last whole class periods. I'm...

Iron Infusion?

My iron levels are very low and iron pills don't work. I have an appointment for an iron infusion - anyone had one before? No idea what to expect but I hope I feel more energetic.

Same

More info

I am in a very large district that is clearly lacking a large pool of teachers to employ - we still don't have a full staff (started in early Aug). These demented decor demands come from our new area...

More Protocol

Received more "look for's" to have around the room. The objective isn't enough - they want it clear which part is the "know" and which is the "show". We must have an area dedicated to prefixes,...

I get it. We had actual reading interventionists but they were the first to go when numbers weren't high enough and so we all got saddled with an intervention class, which broke up a smaller class of...

Lucky!

Congrats on your retirement after this year! I feel that rising absurd demands will only lead to a loss of many great educators.

Truth Time (long)

After one week back to school, I am praying I get the call that I have to quarantine for two weeks.

My district required lengthy PPT slides for virtual last year but I was relieved that we had...

My district used it 2 years ago. Colleagues and I hated it. Low interest texts (at least per my kids), timed activities, and no time to really absorb info before moving on. My district micromanaged...
