I'm sorry you have so many people who don't believe your student scored this high. It is not unreasonable. I currently have a first grader whose reading level tested at 12th grade and her...

great idea!

The minute you submit a student's name for student of the month, that child will have the worst behavior they've had all school year.

The parents who complain you never send any information home...

my interview questions

At my first Christian school, I knew someone who worked there and the principal trusted her reference. We talked about books and TV shows and the only "interview" question was "When can you start?"...

but what about medical books?

I'm sorry

No, it's not too much to expect. I'd make a huge fuss about how embarrassed you were by their behavior then make them write an apology letter to the place you went (they don't have to know you never...

AR is stressful

I had a hard time with AR last year. It was chaotic and I never knew who read what and when they took a quiz. My principal also wants me to use it and you have to make it work for your class. I love...

coming late to the conversation

but we use Saxon at my current school. It is a "spiraling" curriculum like ABeka so you teach a new concept every day and two or three problems on each paper are from the previous weeks, but I feel...

I have an amazing principal

and she handled our tantrum thrower last year. I think if a child screams so loudly that three or four classes down the hall can hear her, it makes sense to remove her from the room. We are very...

yes, it gets better

In my five years experience, I have never had a year teaching even half as exhausting as student teaching. My cooperating teacher worked 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. and she had a family. I never understood it....

letter writing

Maybe have them write a letter from a planet they pretend to visit. They would have to use a specific number of facts about the planet and use the proper format for a friendly letter. The oldest I've...

guided reading

Could you have them choose which centers they want to go to with guided reading as a set choice? Like the purple group always has guided reading 2nd but they can decide to do seatwork 1st or 3rd and...

This was my class's favorite book that I've read all year. They laugh at Templeton, they all relate to Fern, and none of them even said "Eew!" about her crush on Henry Fussy. It took me about 2 weeks...

I won't judge!

I had to force myself to teach history this year because last year I always seemed to "forget" to teach it. I recommend reading to the kids when you have free time. I read to mine at bathroom break,...

That's it! Thank you so much!! I forgot that it was about her running for president so I never would have found it without your help. I read it when I was a sub 3 years ago so I didn't pick it out,...

can't remember name of a picture book

A while back, I read this picture book. It had an illustration of about first grade-age students walking in line and it was so funny. The illustration captured kids perfectly. The teacher was at the...

it's too personal for him

You're not pushing too hard. The parents pay for their children to get a good education, not to cater to the lowest achieving child in the class. Hopefully it'll blow over. I had the same thing...

I made $14,000 two years ago at a school with 90 students. When I changed schools, I made $20,000. You won't be in the poor house. I only went to the food bank when I tried to live on a sub salary.

In the two private schools I've taught at, we have been expected to clean our own classrooms. The past two years, I've had a carpet and only have to vacuum instead of mopping (yeah!). This post makes...

here's what our k teacher does

She has a graduation ceremony in the evening and the rest of us usually attend to help out. The principal gives a short speech, the kids sing 3 or 4 songs that the music teacher practices with them....

So annoying. Just tell the mom you're teaching him to delay gratification. :) No, seriously, I'd avoid her whenever you can. She's not used to people telling her no and having a spoiled parent is...

from Saxon math 2

I agree, subtraction with borrowing/regrouping is intimidating but the kids seem to catch on better than I expect them to. We use dimes and pennies. First I ask them if them if they can subtract the...
