What amazes me is...

The fact that we have information about anything we need at our fingertips. We send emails, robocalls, physical newsletters, post everything on our website and yet parents still canít be bothered to...

Spot on!

I feel the same as all of you. I started feeling rested and re-charged over Winter Break but the last three days in particular have just done me in. Iím exhausted but canít sleep, hungry but canít...

Mask fatigue, itís real!

I teach 6th grade math. We wheel around our carts going from class to class and teaching our hearts out. I love being back in school, but I find that I do struggle to breath in a mask. Iíve tried...

Ours will be unveiled tonight

I am so stressed because you are right, there is no perfect plan. We start school in two weeks. We will be online to start, but the governor says it will be through August 17th. Too much to do and...

Greyhound Girl...

I’m with you. I too was OK with it until just recently. I live in AZ and I thought 115 degrees was to stop the spread, but nope, we are increasing at an alarming rate.

COVID Waiver??

I am in Arizona and do not know anything about a Covid Waiver. What does that contain? Is it so you canít sue the school or something? A waiver about your health is nuts and sounds totally illegal!!!

I agree with so many of you...

Especially the 4-day model. We need one day of solid cleaning. We can use Clorox wipes, but we canít use them when kids are present and we obviously canít have kids use them on their own desks and...

Cleaners - what do you think?

I know many of us are still uncertain what school will even look like this upcoming school year, but I had a curious thought about cleaning supplies. We normally add Kleenex, hand sanitizer, and...

Latch Key Generation

I am from the original “latch key” generation. It is a real shame that most households do not have a parent at home or that families can no longer survive on one income. My mom went back to work in...

Similar in AZ

Our numbers in AZ have really skyrocketed the last two weeks. It has already been decided by the governor that we cannot do “in person” school until after August 17th and it will be evaluated at that...

No REAL union in AZ

This is a right to work state so our union (if you want to call it that) is more like an organization and not what most of you consider a union.

For those that don't know, PBL stands for project...

Looped Twice

We mixed up the kids both times due to behavior issues mainly. Unless you have your dream class, looping with the same kids doesnít always make for a happy teacher.

Thanks for the support!

I should have added that they do stuff like this all the time, but this one is the worst incident. We have not had a reading series for almost 7 years! I teach in an elementary school in the largest...

Who does this?

Plagiarism & Honor Society

I saw the other vent on "cheating & plagerism" and I didn't want to hijack their post.

I have a student applying for NJHS and I saw their essay and I have a suspicion that (1) they plagiarized...

No kids at home but...

We were told not to be seen outside of our homes between 7:30am and 3:30pm because it sends the ďwrongĒ message to parents. Iím sorry, but I canít go for a walk to my mailbox because Iím suppose to...

First off, I look forward to reading your posts. You should write a book! Call it "The View from the Guidance Counselor's Office"!

No 6ft distance in any direction

I know the current climate is tough and making a lot of people feeling stressed. Iím just tired of the term ďanxietyĒ constantly being thrown out any time there is a struggle...anxiety is to blame.

About state testing

Just to add an additional two-cents here, we survived without state testing for many, many years and I'm sure we will survive a year without testing as well. The only people worried are the obsessed...

It seems to be a ďthingĒ that a lot of teachers complain about. I donít know if itís a fear of being sued or bad press or what.

Mandated at my school too!
