This is why we get paid more to work in these classrooms. Usually the day is easy, but these types of injuries from students are not unusual.

How did this happen? Then Principal brought my class in

Today my kinders had an immediate recess, so I knew I had to wait over two and a half hours between restroom breaks.

The sub for the one on one aide had never been there before. I don't think she meant to lead all the kindergartners to the bus. She only led the one student who was her responsibility, but the other...

What Subman says makes some sense, but this time restriction exists on weekends also.

On your mark, get set, CLICK!

I have no idea on what the reasoning could be behind this job hunting policy, but it creates unnecessary stress when looking for jobs a day in advance, and takes away our ability to examine and...

This is a risky punishment.

This teacher better hope that a truly embarrassed student does not complain to parents, or this teacher will be spoken to by the Principal, if not the Superintendent.

I prefer K-6 and special ed because I feel I can engage and help the students rather than babysit them. Middle school can go either way.
