problem student

This sounds like good advice if it ever happens again.

And I hope you put in your note to the teacher that her colleague wouldn't keep the student as her note instructed! - They need to hash that...

leaving at lunch

I think we can leave at lunch, but there really isn't time to get anywhere useful and back. I suppose if I wanted to eat in my car for the quiet?? <!--giggle-->

I don't think we're generally...

It's not about trust in my district at all. They really don't think we're going to come back and steal something! - It's just about people simply forgetting they have the key around their neck as...

I second TAOEP on everything!

Try getting the books ahead if you can, and working your way through over the summer. - If they don't have spares right now, get the edition information and check on...

I find a little competition goes a long way in those situations - either between tables during each class, or one section/period against another. Just reserve a little space on the board for a...

Of course there will be more jobs!

And you are absolutely right that you need a break. NOBODY deserves to be bitten and scratched at work!!

I agree. Make sure you have something special to look forward to that just happens on Fridays. You need to balance the bad with some good in your schedule!

Tired Kinders

These are all great ideas!!

When you mentioned no printer, I also thought about "the longest picture in the world" (from the Ramona books). All you'd need to do is tape a lot of blank sheets of...

change in kids

Great points here!

I totally agree that while today's kids are more accepting of each other's differences, they're far less respectful of adults.

Several posters hit it on the head that it's...

bus that left

That is ridiculous!

I don't think it can be totally on the driver to know exactly how many students they will have each day (- because of absent kids, pick-ups notes, and the like, I'm sure he or...

flu

I agree with asking the custodian for a deep clean.

And I think the nurse could probably send out a general communication that there has been flu in the school. That wouldn't name any names, but...

Depends on the teacher

I generally don't see many requests to correct - unless it's "correct together and send home". I do make an effort to organize anything that's turned in, and if the prep period is near the end of...

Unfortunately, what to do about work avoidance depends totally on why the child is avoiding work. If you can't get the student to explain their reasons, try to get the counselor involved.

Is gum-chewing allowed in your school? It might keep his mouth too busy to talk.

crazy mom

I'm glad your principal has intervened!!

That mom sounds like she has some serious anxiety issues (and some serious boundary issues as well.)

bad days

YES, good classes have bad days!

I find certain times (right before Christmas, the end of January/beginning of February, mid April, and end of year) are especially prone to them.

Absenteeism

I expect it's a combination of things, and different absence patterns have different causes.

I think one of the big ones is that our modern culture is all about the individual. Everything is...

tutoring obligations

After contract hours, a big fat NO.

bathroom

It's all about separating "need to use the bathroom" from "want a break from work".

I'm a firm believer that anyone who actually needs to use the bathroom should be able to!

But I like the idea...
