I wish parents would protest by using their right to vote. So many times I see parents complain about the school over testing their kid, but it is driven by the greedy people they voted into office....

I think the purpose of sarcasm defines whether it is "bad" or not. If the purpose is to mock students then it is harmful, even if it goes over their heads. If the purpose is to make a silly joke,...

Teacher Lanyard

I need help. Last year I bought a Vera Bradley lanyard and case to hold my id card and keys and I really liked it. Until it got really dirty. And I kept dunking it into my food. So this year I got a...

Difficult to motivate

I had a student I suspected of it and he was extremely difficult to motivate. Positive attention made him very uncomfortable and he could not delay gratification. He was on a very strict reward chart...

I am so sorry

I definitely agree to find your way out of there as soon as possible. If...

Contemporary figures

Traditionally, black history focuses on famous black people of the slavery period (Harriet Tubman) and civil rights period (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.). I think that all people who make a difference...

My kids were also picky eaters. I would pack them something I knew they would eat if they were going somewhere at meal time. I think your friend is lacking a little common sense and tact. She...

I made this little powtoon to help my fourth and fifth grade teachers. I used a prompt and texts they were working on, so hopefully it makes sense.

No requirement

We do not have any requirement from our district, school, or curriculum about third graders reading aloud to an adult. We follow the Reading Units of Study, which are big on independent reading, so...

It's everywhere

My 15-year-old daughter told me that there is a girl who vapes in her Spanish class. When I told her teacher she had no idea. I told her depending on what they use, there is no smell after all.
