That's always the first response I give people when they ask. I tell them I take some time to decompress, then I do projects around the house and enjoy relaxing lunches with friends, and I do a...

First, I want to praise you for teaching table manners. So many kids today aren't taught that due to changing home conditions, so it's refreshing to hear others are still making it a priority. :)

Is there a local nursing home that would appreciate you reading to some of the residents? Or just visiting with them?

Volunteer at an animal shelter - playing with the animals or walking them...

I'm sorry to hear you'll be in a bad situation again. How did it pass without you knowing? Were you trying to resign completely or move to another school?

The fact that she went to the P before talking to you first is the red flag to me. It's fine to be worried about a colleague if you are in fact doing things that she's worried about. But that...

I'm sorry the whole thing happened. I will tell you, it's different flying with your family compared to flying with friends. Leaving your family at home, on top of having anxiety about flying in...

I had a really tough time with this when our oldest was 15. We didn't even encourage him to get his license because of it! Then it happened..... he started asking to ride in other cars with...

Yes - I use a coffee cup every day. Maybe it's just traditional for me - like a "comfort food" but with a coffee cup. :D

During the school year, I drink a cup in a regular coffee cup to drink...

When my kids were that age:

We just went there last year and we both had a great time:

1. The ferris wheel on Navy Pier - great way to see the city. We planned it just right - got on right at sunset.

2. Boat tour -...

own child

I agree that it really depends on the child and parent.

My oldest son was in my class when I taught 5th, but it was just one reading class that was non-graded. Everyone knew I was his mom, so...

That's similar to what I said. I told her that I didn't say anything sooner because I wasn't sure if I'd get the job.

Thanks for all your thoughts. It helps me see it from other perspectives.

I didn't know she'd find out when I put in my application - apparently it goes to all the principals! She SAID she was mad because I didn't give her much time to hire someone else (it was a month...

Definitely no input on ones that we get.

We do give input on the kids moving up to the next grade - the ones that need to be separated or in a lower/higher performing class (we're...

When did you give your notice?

If you changed schools, when did you tell the P?

My P was irate that I didn't tell her I was transferring to another school within our district. I told her, but it was after it went through...

read aloud

I don't think you should ever stop. Teachers model how to read, so it should continue throughout their education. I know many elementary teachers who don't have a read aloud time for their students...

What was it that really did you in during the school year? Is it something you can tweak over the summer? I enjoy sleeping-in over the summer, then sipping coffee on the back porch, then sitting at...

1. I prefer early in the summer. When it gets later, I start getting back into the school-mode.

2. Lately, by plane. When the kids were younger, we traveled by car (mostly because we didn't have...

Let us know how everything goes! I had mine yesterday and I always get nervous, too. I had a "questionable" one a few years back which turned out to be nothing, but the thought is still there.

Since they come out the same as far as expenses, I'd go with the one that you like the best. 3-5 years isn't enough to worry about if you love that one more. If you love them equally the same, then...

I agree. I would've loved to take my babies everywhere I went, but some places just aren't appropriate for them.

No doubt too many people think the rules don't apply to them, and that's the...
