Boy, do I know that story!

Replace the him with a "her" this year, and it could be verbatim. Mine got really mean with the emails too, until they went too far making threats from their State University job and got reprimanded...

Surly...tell it like it really is!

Kids LIE! <SHOCK>! Why can't we call a lie a lie? It's become too typical to call it something else lately, clear up to the national level.

Parents hate to hear this or think such, but they...

Some might not like this, but...

I don't allow kids to sleep in my class. I stop heads down on desks. I will quietly/gently ask if they are not feeling well and be understanding, but with kids like the one you describe or those...

Sounds like...

Admin. needs to have a lesson on the importance of doodling, etc., as shown through many studies these days. Also, what types of learners there are!

What are the taser/stun gun laws at your school/district?

What would happen in your districts to a kid who brought one to HS, finally showed it around campus, joked with it going off in the air, and then held it <very> closely to other students'...

I still feel anxiety on Sunday, and sometimes other days of the weeks, depending upon what's going on. I go to bed as early as I can. I try to sleep. Get through a few hours, then every 45 minutes...

Nothing of this nature is appropriate to be put on FB without talking to a teacher first! Likewise, to the admin., et cetera before talking to the teacher...but ya know? It's going to happen. ...

I have had a bad ear all my life, so I have an ENT (ear,nose,throat)specialist . Their office has a display wall with all the crazy things they've pulled out of kids' ears, noses and...

Until one finds themselves in that situation for real, it's hard to say how they might react. I'd like to think taking care of the kids would be priority number 1, but when panicked and scared, some...

breach of contract!

If one party in the contract isn't receiving what is required (ie: SAFETY during execution of said contractual duties, et cetera) then the contract could be ruled invalid.

Am I lucky or not?

I got a jury summons for today. I'm somewhat relieved and yet feel somewhat guilty for leaving Halloween for a sub! Thank goodness she's a sub who knows what she's doing, knows the kids and will...

I won't do them anymore...

We are such a small district, it's too easy to be identified.
Also, a few years back, our school board designed a survey for "basic information" on school climate, et cetera, then turned the...

I would report her to Teachers Standards and Practices, or the correlating state department in your state for Teaching Ethics. Private or public, she's breaking the law!

Not really drama, but...

it always made me laugh! We used to have 2 mini donkeys living across from the school sports fields. Whenever we had games (especially at the football games) and the national anthem was played,...

Just an observation...

but sadly? Too many parents don't parent anymore! Perhaps they don't know how to? Perhaps they've not had any appropriate models in their lives? Maybe they are just so overwhelmed with job, life...

It's not even the original pledge.

As for the anthem, it's history is actually quite interesting and somewhat questionable. Most people don't even realize there are more verses, and don't know...

I agree with you...

So much hullabaloo about "symbols!"

How about getting kids (and adults) to understand and respect the meanings behind said symbols?

As for the pledge at school? I haven't followed the story,...

Well, after 30 years this year (and no, that's not tooting my horn, just shaking my head in disbelief!), there are days/times/events that I feel/have felt worn down to a single, tiny thread.

Your first years you do try to "stay under the radar" IF you feel you need to. And trust me, I understand that! Oh, the stories I could tell about my "big" mouth. Having said that, I'd suggest...

I am not making light of it by saying, "Welcome to the choir!" because there are SO many "choir directors" these days anymore, who have NEVER SUNG at all! There are many, many folks out there who...

Seriously? You complain about THIS?

So...we ended up having a wonderful final rewards field trip today for those that earned the reward.
