jealous for the right reason

I'd be jealous if we have the same composition in class but somehow, this teacher's class is performing better. I will obviously celebrate this staff's accomplishment because of their magic bullet....

SEEMS dishonest

Welcome to the age of ambiguity. Name of the game is people know nothing and "don't ask me, I just work here".

It appears misleading but yep, believe it or not, it's standard practise. If...

not about this case

In the context of the discussion here, I wouldn't have a bone to pick with a sub much less get this person blocked, or perish the thought, fired, if things got done. What I mean by that is if the...

Are you sure?

This is a big generalization. I have to admit that I got a chuckle out of this but if the regular teacher had an emergency (or even a surprise meeting or PD) and a day of assessment was in the plan,...

gaming = preferred sub list

If there's a hacker in AM or if this mysterious app exists that holds jobs, I would definitely think that's gaming. But if this person is on a preferred/priority sub list then it could be a "way" to...

drill sargeant type

While this guest's style is a little too over the top, I think I understand why the guest was a little too excessive. Common sense tells us that being gentle, civil, and courteous should be the...

supervisory role

What was the basis of the complaint? If you're their ST's supervisor, your job means having to act as a liaison between the school and the practicum office. You may or may not necessarily be in...

learn their lesson

One day, they'll learn their lesson to do layers. It's best to pile more on especially in the cold seasons. Not that this should ever happen to anyone but if anyone should get stuck outside...

different holiday and state

And then can you imagine teaching in New Orleans during Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Their poor teachers have to put up with students in Halloween and then when they gotta play dress up again for...

talk of the town

I'm sure that you've been a topic of their convo. If nothing's stopping you, I say end the term early if you don't have to stay to finish.

if it's not a separate

If it's not a separate course yet or part of some program but general keyboarding skills, topics on some health or hygiene, research skills both online and IRL, ethics and civility (dressing for...

personal document

Not personal keys but I wonder if they might ask for your driver's license instead. This might be a better form of collateral so that if there's any guest that tries to leave campus during lunch...

lack of awareness

I can see the teacher pleading innocence or proving her lack of knowledge/awareness of the abuse. Or how can they prove that this adult is aware?

As strange as this might sound, I don't think...

by their own admission

Middle schoolers think this way. They will say anything and everything to get your goad on. I bet that this student said this in front of people for shock value too. Don't give them the...

no matter what

I agree with what's on the article, hands down. In all honesty though, having the charisma, personality, and sound bite can get you anywhere. Call me shallow but it's how the real world works. ...

that is worrisome

Sometimes one might be able to tell from physical development but even this isn't a sure fire way. Even I wouldn't have a clue. This is why I truly believe that teachers should keep copies of...

what a waste

If the chair of the committee was more fortright, he could've just said that this is a done deal and I'm here to unpack what we're going to be adopting and getting training in. Skip the hard...

no tip

using card, but if you feel like leaving some coins on the counter, that's what I would do.

don't give up

Keep on. Every time you see a student not doing the right thing, provide options, "Harry, you can't do that because you're not being safe. So either you use that seat and do the work for 20 minutes...

thick skin

I heard it all before and they just roll off my back now. I know that I can't please everyone and it was rude. Of course you weren't meant to hear it. At least now you know. I would rather have...

weight in gold

Have you consulted with your department? I don't see anything the matter with your weighting especially in the middle school level. I'm not sure by your category on participation but I'm thinking...

interesting problem

You mean that the accidents are happening inside your classroom? So that means that the students who are out of your room have been taking a long time to get back. These students are taking...

I am my own

When I get days like this, I am my own guest teacher. Ease your way into the day. It happens.
