Good luck to all

I sincerely wish you all good luck in any career you choose to pursue.

It's been a wild ride, but I just don't believe in the direction the profession has gone.

And it has let me down too...

Update on previous post: Just resigned.

Well, this is it, folks. Just quit teaching for good after 15 years.

The poor treatment during the pandemic was the final nail in the coffin.

I wish everyone luck.

This field is in...

@bodhimom

Yeah, judging by her unprofessional email she sounds like an entitled new teacher trying to coddle the kids. Perhaps in her 20's or early 30's and new to the game. Just speculating of course, but...

Nice. Your school sounds like they actually hold the kids accountable for their own responsibilities.

My view is by the time you're of middle school age you should know that blatantly ignoring...

@tapdance

Yeah, I used to circulate around the room. But now with Covid I don't do it. I won't do it until I'm vaccinated.

Heck, I'm not even sure if I'll do it when I'm vaccinated. There's still the...

I don't walk around the room right now. I'm not vaccinated yet and don't want to catch anything. Call me paranoid, but that's just how I roll currently.

In fact, I just blocked out two months...

Banned from a classroom during a pandemic

Friday I received a rather unprofessional, unfriendly email from a teacher I was in for.

The teacher claimed her students didn't do their work because of me, and that I was on my phone ignoring...

@Submarine24

Hah, gotta love nepotism.

And I wholeheartedly agree the best way to deal with schools who are flaky or terribly unorganized is to not do business with them in the first place. No need to put...

I agree subbing is not great during the pandemic.

But use your full real name in professional emails always.

People are going to think you're spamming them otherwise.

And who knew filing for unemployment during a pandemic would be considered the crime of the century? Lol.

I'm piggybacking on everyone's good replies.

My thoughts:

It's all speculation.

Depends on the district you work for, and if students and staff are willing to be reasonable.

Update

I know this was a bit of a long-winded, hopeless rant that perhaps belonged in "the vent," but I was fed up with being jerked around by the DOL.

Anyway, after sending passports and other personal...

I've never taught at a public school without a flag or pledge in my lifetime.

The only time I've been in a situation where there was no pledge was on a day most students were arriving late.

I don't think that's necessarily what he's saying. Perhaps he's looking at the mental health side of things. Many families are losing their minds right now being stuck at home for a year.

The department of labor are useless

Five months ago I was accused of filing for UI while out of the country.

I wasn't out of the country.

I had a VPN on by accident while filing a claim.

The department of labor told me I...

Agree 100%. I sub only for middle school and high school level.

Much less exhausting than elementary where you have to: hold their hand, keep them constantly entertained, and walk them in a...

This happened to me for using a VPN while filing for weekly benefits. The system thought I was filing from Europe due to using it.

Had to answer a few questions. Some seemed a bit intrusive,...

Thanks for the replies. Closing statement.

Nice to experience any form of solace during these anxious and isolating days.

You're lucky and I am certainly jealous of your situation.

I still get full classes on occasion and plenty of behaviors. Particularly abuse of bathroom use and fooling around in the hallways. ...

Well summarized, as always.

I'm shocked at how in-denial so many schools are.

And some of the students, as expected, do not take social distancing seriously at all. Makes me feel like some...

Yeah, all involved are suffering immensely. No question.

However, subs are particularly in the dark here. (As we have been with unemployment rights, but that's a whole different beast.)

Subbing is a joke right now.

I know remote learning is certainly no picnic for full time teachers, but it's getting to the point where the job is so aimless, monotonous, and repetitive I'm having a hard time staying awake. And...

I see what submarine24 is saying.

I completely agree how unhealthy schools have become during the pandemic.

And I don't mean the obvious reasons.

I've subbed for P.E. recently. The kids only got around 15 minutes of actual...
