I could have written the same post today. I'm planning to pack a good lunch for tomorrow, have dinner planned and prepped for after I get home, and started reading a book to distract me from the...

I hear you!

I have the mix of full remote, 2 day in person hybrid, 4 day in person hybrid and quarentined students all in the same 7th or 9th grade classes. Most days I feel ok about what I put out to the kids....

I must have his sister in my class!
I remember a workshop once where the presenter said to stop working harder than our students. Students need to do the difficult work to learn. Unfortunately...

I hear you!

It's similar with my students. My admin is a little better but still asking more from me than I can give. I try to compassionately hold my ground with students on basic work ethic issues (cheating...

Me too!

The beginning of break I was able to relax a little. I even noticed my worsening asthma symptoms have disappeared despite dust and pets at home I had previously contributed it to. Now I'm...

I didn't realize before this year how student attitude could completely drain me. For the first time in 20 years of teaching I have students with averages in the 20s and below. Two have 0s! This...

Sad here too.

I'm sorry you feel so alone. We can be lonely together! I have been struggling lately too. I turned 50 two weeks ago. Small plans I had fell through. Nobody at school realized because I'm not...

When it happened to me

I was told I could write a response to the reprimand letter to also be placed in my file. I had Union support, and they had the legal expert read my letter before I sent it. It didnt change that...

You can make glue?

We're hybrid. 7th grade science. I sent them home with a project that included cutting pictures out to glue or tape on the time line we started in school. A few kids couldn't finish at home due...

Me too!

I'm loud, and very sensitive about it when people call me out on it. Depending on who is saying "gee, you don't have to be so loud" I like replying that its just so hard to be heard over all the...

Good advice

Given above, but I would also talk with the child's parent. I teach in a small district that my own kids attend. Coworkers have taught my kids and I've taught several of theirs. I would talk to...

Eye twitch

I get an eye twitch. When I was in school we had a math teacher with a twitch. His back pocket wallet would jump around when he was writing on the board. I wonder if that was stress?! Lol!

Not sure either

We are week 3 of hybrid, but I also have 8 full remote kids. They've all fallen into my trap of doing the first easy assignment, so I know those kids should have access to the internet and my...

They're expected to read, don't worry!

My students are expected to read and outline their reading, 2-3 sections a week. If the book doesn't open on their chromebooks I provide a hardcover book. It's just I got dumped on when the school...

I just wish the school would make suggestions for these families instead of pretending the problem doesn't exist. The teachers are getting training on the latest available technology, but we can't...

Not a good fit- lol!

I'm at such a small school that I'm the only science teacher that is certified to teach what I teach. If a student and I aren't a good fit, oh well....you get what you get! I hope they put him in a...

I'd try talking to, or writing a well thought out email, to the principal listing all the reasons why your plan is better and why hers won't work. Stroke his ego and say you know he already gave an...
