Brain Breaks

Can you work in some type of brain break or walk before math? I've had classes where we stood up and stretched to refocus. Or play some kind of calming music (rain, ocean sounds?) and have a minute...

Smart Classroom Management

I really found Michael Linton's approach helpful. I've had very troubled students and I also found that...

It sounds like you are doing a phenomenal job.

I also work at a school where they won't stand up for teachers and want us to best friends with the students. The real rules are: keep everyone...

You're a Saint

Wow, I love how you are not giving into this girl and arguing with her. It sounds like she is trying to antagonize you, and you won't fall for it. That's probably throwing her off her game. Also,...

I feel like the only friends I have now are from my current school. I just lost touch and didn't have time to maintain outside of work friends. I still may get an occasional text or online post, but...

Don't have one

We haven't had one for years. Basically, they don't want us using a program. We are supposed to use our state standards and go from there. It can be a pain photocopying stories and resources. ...

Used to Have Them Copy

We used to have students copy our warm up several times a week. There were always a few kids who just wouldn't. Then there were others who couldn't really see well, had horrific handwriting, and were...

Gromit, Agree 100%

I also hate being forced to take breaks. When I need to go to the restroom, I would rather just go then wait in a line in the bathroom at the appointed time.

I would also rather work through...

Great responses

Many of my coworkers do not check their email until our first inservice day. Personally, I have my email and it comes up on my phone. I would probably send my first day Power Point of something. ...

Can't keep track

I've used Dojo, but it's too time consuming to keep track of the points in middle school. I did have a list like this, but never really used it. If I recall...

My students don't need to buy anything except pencils. Of course, many don't even bring that and we are told not to say anything to them:(

Our school provides them with folders and notebooks. I...

I've always used a bell. I just say, "When you hear the bell, stop and look."

I've tried all types of things and I feel like they can hear the bell the best. One thing I don't like is that went...

I hate it

I really hate FB. I don't think I could avoid snarky responses so bless you for your patience.

The ice cream social one is just ridiculous. If someone thinks like that, I feel like there is no...

It can be really hard being forced to team with people who are so different. My team this year is fine. However, I do struggle with my grade level partners. They are both more experienced than I am...

PPP is a great term!

We have PPP vice principal also. No spine and he actually gives into the students. I can't say how many students have talked him out of detentions or even suspensions. He's tell the students things...

Cut and Paste

I was having flashbacks of making handouts by literally cutting and putting them together.

I hope your computer issues are fixed by now. I always have a backup plan because our Internet isn't very...

Lock Door

I feel like these two people work at my school.

Due to the first one, I lock my door, turn my lights out and pretend like I'm not in my room. Time is precious and I cannot have yet another...

Yep, Just Can't Get it Together

I am the same. I usually am pretty excited and have made a bunch of new things for the school year. This year, I stopped myself from doing anything until closer to school. Now that it is bearing down...

Grommit: So True

"Now? I can barely get them to sit through a high interest, high quality, two minute YouTube clip."

I feel the exact same way. We read a few novels of which there are movie adaptations. I try...

I hate being outside also. I like the idea of just doing it and then trying to trade with someone who loves the "fresh air." I wouldn't complain to the principal yet:)

I'd just say something...

I Chant to Myself:

"Keep your mouth shut." I just say that to myself over and over and plaster a fake smile on my face. I have never regretted NOT saying something. However, I can kick myself for all the times I spoke...

Maybe they should move him onto an "admin cart" since he doesn't have classes. Honestly, this sounds awful. I taught in other rooms for exactly one year. I found it really stressful and I had to be...

To Zia

If I was smart, I probably would.I think by now everyone has our P's cell number. However, if it is not a dire emergency, I just like to follow the procedure and go through the proper channels.
