I think you have

a lot to work with. Do talk to your supervisor.

With those two degrees and a willingness--an actual preference--to take on EBD, you are worth your weight in gold.

But, I wouldn't rush...

Nope--wouldn't fly here

In our district, we returned to school F2F on time in August. We have a lot of structures in place in order to limit exposure and such.

One effort was to put the MS/HS kids in cohorts. At first,...

Hello again!

It is not just what you say but the thought behind it--it's about changing your thinking as well as theirs.

For the students that are hard to "love," you may have to watch really, really closely...

No raise here

even though we are continuously short-staffed. It has been the same sad low rate since 2000 or so-around $65/day for a full day and $35 for a half...

But, we did get notice:

Google Growth Mindset

Growth Mindset is a relatively new term (last several years) that repackages old "best practices" from the beginning of time.

But, being the newest way to say all this, there are lots of really...

Wrong - wrong - wrong....

Not only is the letter contradictory and poorly written, it is just wrong. The over all message is wrong.

We are a small, rural district in one of those places where the numbers were near zero. We...

Yes, I think you are correct--

as the shields are to be an addition to, not a replacement of, the standard mask. It is probably better than nothing but they are still not in compliance with the mask rule.

I thought the shield...

Nope--Would not pay it.

I agree that it is outrageous to think they are suddenly acceptable since we paid to wear them--either they are or they aren't... Donating to a cause does not change that.

Most of the work pants...

Same as gofish

but I use one laptop and one phone. I am the Host on the laptop usually. I use the meeting id and passcode to enter the meeting on my phone.

I am not sure if it is a State thing, Federal, Title I or what, but I am requires to sign a paper each year stating that 100% of my instructional time was/is spent with SpEd students only.

Yes and no

They may not get the same experience with in-person Classroom management but they will get to experience seeing virtual classrooms and students "managed" by experienced teachers.

This will...

We are here in the Midwest

You are luckier than we are in one respect. We have ALWAYS started with 3 teacher days prior to two student days to go over back to school process prior to jumping in. Not this year. Teacher days...

It would not

For me

I think that Burnout is an umbrella term and demoralization is just one of the categories underneath.

Demoralization is one of the things that can lead to burnout. But, on the other hand, LOTS...

Thank you for sharing.

I am now part of several groups on FB set up for Special Education teachers. I just trust PT more.

I will be following this with interest-just in case.

We haven't received any word on what our plan actually contains. Last official word was that we were intending to go back in person with precautions in place.

But, since then, our county is...

I am not sure that anyone will tell you outright that is the real reason you might be passed over.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that this is the case. Some states, where a Masters is required...

Not a fan of using a Fan itself!

What type of fan are you referring to?

If you are using it for COVID, a regular standing or box fan is illogical due to the fan blowing everyone's germs around.

LOL. I'd call it more Fear of the KNOWN.

That describes my class as well. They will wear no masks or fight compliance all day. I figure they will be exempted due to disability.

I also have two in Depends that also pick below the...

In our district,

we closed in March like everyone else. We reopened in June for an online summer school for some HSers.

About 6/15, the Statewide restrictions lifted more so we had a modified Prom and a modified...

I sure don't claim to know about you guys

or your present situation. I do know that my adult DD was overpaid in March of 2019. She was a waitress in a midsized restaurant and applied for unemployment when she was laid off for the winter. ...
