Youíre as young as you feel! Our Teacher of the Year this year just happens to be 72. Another highly regarded dynamo is 64, and she was hired at 60. If you plan on working anyway, why not do what you...

Another thought...

Ask if you are allowed to send an email or notice to staff and families asking for book donations. Youíll get a ton- people love to give books to classrooms!

Also, there is an online recycling...

Donors Choose

I got hundreds of book over the years from this amazing organization. If you teach full time at a public school you can use it. Check it out! PM me if you have questions- I had many projects funded!

SO sorry!

Nancy, I am so sorry to hear this! Maybe it will never come to fruition. Is your DD happy when you speak to her? Is she safe? Prayers for you all.

Give them enough time

I have the little ones, and I find when I give them more time it makes for a smoother end to the day. Maybe you can have them sit at their desks after packing and just read or talk quietly.

That was odd

I agree it was an odd thing to say- some people's sense of humor is mistimed or just "off."

The only thing that really matters is that you will be close to your dad. I will keep you and your dad...

Many of my colleagues are in a similar position, and they are all sticking it out. Ps come and go, but thereís a lot to be said for job security (does your state have tenure?)

Iíd get one where the teacher could get something personal or for the classroom, if they wish. A local supermarket or Target would be great. At Dunkiní they could always get a sandwich.

Are the regular Ed openings?

Iíve done both, and although regular Ed has its challenges, itís not as draining as self contained special Ed, imho.
