I'll just let you do it

I had a google classroom for my children since the beginning year and there's never been a problem with internet for them, which they confirmed with me. I've been posting work on there for them to...

Makes no sense

If there is a pandemic why do teachers have to report? In my county, we have the same amount of days off as the students and we get paid for the time off.

District closed from 3/17 to 3/29

I was hoping they did close, but knowing Chicago Public Schools, they never close. So this is actually very surprising. Only thing is my P is expecting I create packets for my kids by Monday. This...

Definitely a problem

I have 5th graders and I had to put "5 min, 15 minute, 30 min, 45 min, 60 min" on a clock so they knew how to read it. It took them about a year to understand that they go by 5s and how to count the...

@GraceKrispy

I tried to call her but the number was not in service. The child always claimed he didn't know the number or his mother's phone was off. The school tried to get this child's number or a number of at...

Word spinning backfires

Around 7am today, I had a parent come in. She was at my door before I was at my door. I was a little shocked. She walks up to me and says in a very angry manner. "I just want to know where you...

It's almost march?

My P who is actually pretty nice has been going through an "let's implement random ideas I think about randomly!" phase. We had our grade level meeting today and she throws up the idea that we should...

Very iffy on it

I've done it with my 5th grade class if it was just a practice assignment, and I wanted to them to understand where they went. When it comes to my class, it seems like they are very honest about...

This school isn't for me anymore

After all the issues with the overcrowding, new P issues, the toxic issues between the staff members and just the basic stress of every day working. My kids don't even have desks to sit in. Nothing...

This was my first week of school. I had such a good week with my group of 5th graders, no problem with them at all, there's 40 of them though, that's fine. Totally. One thing that annoyed me for the...

My school hired a new AP, he was nice at FIRST. Now, he just walks around with a stern face and comes into classes to yell at the students. I kid you not, in the past 3 weeks he's been here he's been...
