Center Management Problems

I'm having a rough year. I'm in an okay school but it has some rough kids and very little discipline support. This is 3rd grade for reference, about 17 kids and a fair mix of boys to girls. This is...

I had the same situation with a school I left 2 years ago on good terms, I was FB friends with my administrators, and kept in touch with them all the time. When I started my job hunt, I immediately...

As others have said...

Not all kids like/can work well in super loud classrooms. You may be the one they really perform well for because of your quiet nature. I'm that way as well. While I have a semi-loud voice, I tend to...

Yep!

Two years ago I had a parent come FUMING into our VP's office demanding I be fired. This was the 3rd day of school. The VP didn't bother calling me down immediately, she let me go about my day and...

Personally...

I'm torn on the subject. Part of me wants to walk away from all the bureaucracy, politics, and overwhelming parts of teaching forever. The other part of me loves the kids and (for the most part)...

Been there

Unfortunately, yeah I've been in this exact situation. However, I had the fortune of having a higher-up (not admin, but may as well have been) in the room when it was said. I've taught ESL for 8...

That's what I'm hoping for!

I think yall are probably right. I'm coming from a district that I got EVERYTHING the day I signed the contract, so it's just a big difference for me that I have to get used to! All districts do...

Bad communication immediately after hired

So I changed districts (states, everything!) this summer. I signed my contract, got my badge, and got all of the HR stuff done back on June 5th. It is now July 21st and I still have no access to any...

I transferred to a new district this summer and I have no information. I'm assuming my P and the rest of them are taking vacation or something because I can't get any answers. I was not given keys...

Reading your update about the observation....

My question is, how is a parent allowed to observe a class that doesn't include her own child?? That is a huge FERPA issue and your admin should not...

Dream job interview came too late..

I got an email on Monday requesting me for interviews (2 campuses) in my DREAM district.
