That said, I do have a simple system I use. The kids can earn a 1, 2, 3 or 4 in the...

My school does this as well. In fact, all the schools I've worked at have done it. I don't know why they pretend.

Could it be an infection? When I had an abscess, it hurt to bite down on anything hard. It also hurt to eat hot food and the final clue was that it woke me up while sleeping. Took them a few days to...

We're under 50% of jobs filled. Like others have mentioned, a planned absence will often be covered, but not the day of. My interventionist is supposed to be running reading groups. She's seen them...

Whatever this means.

In my school we don't call children names or insult them. Politically correct or just being a decent human?

We saw JoJo Rabbit last night. A dark satire of WW2 and probably not everyone's taste, but I really liked it. I thought it was a good balance between funny, tense and somber.
