It's out of stock on Amazon, but I'll keep checking in on it. I hadn't thought of ebay- I will look into it. Thank you both for the help!

I have a califone cardmaster in my room. (You put a large card with cassette tape on it, and record words on it.) I use it to teacher vocabulary and sight words, and wanted to buy some more blank...

Not sure

I know now that attendance counts as part of the accreditation rating in my state, so they are becoming more strict in enforcing the rules.

Strike question

We make the lists, but we don't choose the teachers for each group, and admin may still mix them up a bit based on info we don't know (ex. Parent request).

My husband created an online one for our son's birthday, but like Jackie, it definitely didn't go in invites. If a family asked for ideas, I sent the link. If they didn't ask for ideas or decided...

Co- workers

Would you be allowed/ feel comfortable emailing the staff and asking if anyone knows somebody? Yes, you'll need to pay, but your coworker might know people you don't. I've had staff at my school...

Doing it now

I signed up for it last year, but had some personal issues that made it hard to keep up with it. I like that she gets to what are important aspects of teaching, versus fluff. (Example: she warnd...

Tawaki summed it up when she said that was part of the job. Your daughter is ready and is in the appropriate age range to be trained. I wouldn't send her back, would tell her why, and make it...
