We have been dealing w/ a similar

situation for a few yrs. I do not know how to "put the box " around your quote:
However, with structure, routines, and consistency, they have the potential to do very well.

Congrats on getting out of there

and deleting their email. I think it was smart to just email your decision. Snarky comments are made by "snarky people." Everyone knows that, I think. Best wishes in your new endeavors!...

1 of my most memorable food stories

A spoiled rotten girl came to class 30 minutes late with a HUGE doughnut smothered with chocolate frosting.
She walked in w/ it and sat down to eat it during reading group. I told her to put it...

I see this as less than proving, but more of

being open to try new ideas. I wouldn't be too worried about it.
Just be ready to explain your classroom management system IF asked and to tie in who gave you this plan.)
He may not even ask. He...

Mine lies about a lot worse things than

recycling! :( It stinks though when you realize how schools are often designed for appearance sake and a lot of things we are told to do are all about the $$$.
It took me a lot of yrs to realize...

Oh, That would cause big

problems here! Next time if you want to do that get the kid in the hall.
Kids are now allowed in school w/ lice.
Check out what school nurses say.

I have had 2 pets both of which

almost lived 20 yrs at different times (both died at 19.) Both slept in our bed and wherever they chose..
They were probably the most spoiled cats you could know. Both were extremely loveable and...

I have seen coverage complaints on here

before. Our union would be unhappy if they did that here. The only time I ever got put on coverage was when I was in a "leadership" role too. As a teacher, they can't do that!

If IT doesn't get the data back, you

don't have much choice. Justify away! 1x I lost my GB near the end of the yr. ( Back in the days before computer GB's.)
WE turned in our yr plan and gradebooks during sign out. I asked and had to...

Making their test scores count 2x is down right insane. Yes, it is way too easy here for kids to get pushed into sped when they really don't belong there here.
AS teachers who care, we see it as a...

Glad you guys are standing up

like that! As long as teachers let them, districts will underpay and overwork most teachers. I have always wished there'd be an united effort on a national scale for a strike.
It would make people...

You opened the email. :) 1 of my bf's and I worked w/ the same crabby secretary of our supervisor
a few yrs. Every time I opened 1 of the emails from her it was telling me something I did wrong....

I know how schools say:

It is difficult to expel or even suspend kids w/ 504 or kids who are in sped.
If her 504 is due to epilepsy, I see absolutely no connection to her swinging at the teacher.
It probably is very...

Another view..

As a general ed teacher, I have seen student expectations lowered to a point that is ridiculous over the yrs. It may just be our inexperienced sped teacher. IDK, but I have had lots of sped kids...

Just saw this....

Wow! My 1st thought too goes to what happened before the sub "went off?"
I saw where the teen swung at her 1st. I think teachers should be able to defend themselves in cases like this. ( I am...

All I can say is I am sorry you

are having to go through such a nightmare. What doesn't kill us makes us stronger. This experience is something you can learn from. To work as a teacher nowadays in many places, you are given mixed...

I dealt w/ that decline for maybe 10 yrs

or more. I noticed the biggest change when parents got addicted to FB.

When I 1st saw a device in a 2 yr old's hands I remember being shocked thinking, "What a smart kid!" My bad for thinking...

You did what many wanted to do over the yrs, but were either afraid to or couldn't afford to do. Working in a place w/ so many demands is not healthy.

Making copies/ APPLe Annie

If they are learning what they need to

learn and going to the next class knowing how to work w/partners/groups then I don't think they are talking too much. If they are below grade level, interrupt a lot, and are chatting about things not...

By your 1st paragraph,

It brought up a sick feeling in me about parents and the educational system. I am so sorry you are in the trenches like you are. When I look and see what has happened to kids because of the lack of...
