Gee, I wonder where they get it?

I also teach adults and have the same problems. "I need to leave an hour early? Will I miss anything?" "I've been really busy and haven't had time to do the assignment for today's class!"

Moderna, first shot, arm pain and delayed rash... after discussion with a health care provider who has had both, we concluded that it's hard to tell what are "legitimate" side effects versus...

They are not really against you.

All generalities about middle schoolers are ultimately false, one of the things that makes them both challenging and fun. I've often said to other subs, "Yes, they are going to test you... but they...

You're welcome!

Sometimes the best defense is a good offense... Not much point in trying to convince parents their little cherubs aren't perfect (particularly when the cherub has already accepted it)... we're just...

Go for it!

I think it's a great idea... particularly if they get to choose the "product." It could be anything from "the best pet to own" to a favorite song or video game or job to have... they could write...

Hard Conversation

They sound like textbook lawnmower parents, convinced their little darling is the perfect child--which is very unfair to the child.

I would have a few examples like the one above when talking to...

A little perspective... maybe

In a word, "Wow."

That said, I'm curious how she (the student) functioned prior to going remote. Yes, remote is "different," but the issue being raised isn't about being remote, really, at least...

Try Zoom Tutorials/Help

The Zoom support system and tutorials are great... they are very short videos and particular topics. You'll probably want to watch a few on how to share screen... there are lots of options, one...

Yes and No...

Do kids mask or hide their true feelings? Absolutely. Some kids are really good at it... It's not easy to know what a kid is thinking and feeling under normal circumstances.

Obviously, I don't...

Even in non-teaching life, I would not reply to anonymous emails. As a sub, I don't need to see lesson plans before accepting a job and, in my opinion, it's an unrealistic expectation... many times...

Don't get me started...


I would just throw into the mix the observation that "remote" learning is a much more dramatic shift than most realize. Teachers are now on the parent's (or child's) turf. With it comes the...

Reading into it...

Since he's speaking "in general," I wouldn't read too much into it. It's a true statement, at least on the surface. It may just be a simple plea for everyone to be sensitive to parents' opinions....

It will only SEEM like hours? LOL

Too funny... I had almost the opposite experience while teaching an adult class. I was quiz day and one student shared that her young son warned her when she left for class. "You'd better do well on...

My best suggestions...

One of my favorites is I wish they did more videos... and some of their stuff can be a little clinical, but it's sound content--not just touchy-feely stuff.

If some of the...

Cloudy Crystal Balls...

I don't think anyone's crystal ball is very clear so it becomes pure speculation if not simply guessing. We keep looking for the silver bullet. I'm not sure we're going to find one--particularly in...

Not an answer, just some thoughts...

Moms do not always understand what the doctor says and, frankly, do not always tell the truth. Dementia in a 14-year-old would be extremely rare--one reason you are having trouble finding...

I like the suggestion of demonstrating what the "bare minimum" looks like when they receive it.

But my disclaimer is you're "fighting" a battle with the odds stacked against you, largely because...

Clouded Crystal Balls

One of the underestimated impacts of the current situation is the toll uncertainty is taking on everyone. Anyone (and I include the so-called "experts") who claims to know what's going to happen...

If the kids are old enough to use them, "click erasers" are great. Light is the enemy of erasers; it's what makes them get hard.

One thought...

Well, maybe two. I'm a little confused by what you mean "self-contained." That typically applies to special ed?

Be that as it may, I'd suggest you do some poking around on different forums and...
