Hi, I read both your posts and have a relatable situation. At first I answered the texts and calls, but some of our conversations became uncomfortable for me as we were making school decisions and...

Out of Line

Your coworker is behaving unprofessionally. It is weird your principal had no reaction about how rude she was. Is there anyone else that works with the child who can sit in your next meeting? I wish...

Show and Tell

You could try doing Show and Tell at this time. Students look forward to it and are excited to see what their classmates bring in. Plus, it can be done quickly and is great for breaking up a long...

I have had students with lice and I would just send them to the nurse if I was suspicious. I teach younger students and I would just tell them they were getting checked out. As far as the boys I am...

I almost laughed while reading your post because there is always someone who grabs. One of my tricks is I give an instruction and have the kids repeat what I say. However, I remember seeing a little...

I think we all have spoken too quickly at one time or another while teaching. The hardest part is thinking over all the things you could have said or done. First, forgive yourself. Then, listen for...

I feel the same

It is nice to have a strong reputation, but like you said, you always seems to carry the heaviest load. I feel burned out and just want to be regular teacher again, too.

We can get through it and...
