PBIS AND Restorative Justice

We are one of a very few (like 2) that have it in the elementary school. It's tough- we can kinda do it.

Here's my thing - I never give a kid something for doing what they are supposed to do....

Yes

I have been wondering the same about prep. I work in a big district, have taught for 10 years and have my Masters. My husband is only working part time now (college) and my kids actually qualify...

We took a different strategy...

Students can have devices as long as they are stored in a place I have for them. I have been known to reply to parents. This has made my job easier and avoids the issue of not having enough...

Please

Talk with your school psych. Does she have siblings? Maybe she gets what she wants at home when she talks like this.

Ha!

Shake It Off is about as tame as it gets. Don't stop because of one crazy parent. No matter what you do will be wrong. Do what's best for the others.

I want to be done worrying

Really, I do. I want to quit feeling like everything is MY fault. Especially with things I can't control. For example - one of my kids parents was partying too loudly so the kid didn't get enough...

Yep

It's tough but I really enjoyed discussing curriculum and other school topics. It used to make a significant pay raise but Walker fixed all of that. 10 years teaching with a Masters Degree and...

Well

I am a 5th grade teacher. Why should they have to learn it? Parents are ALWAYS making excuses for the kids. The kids don't care because if they don't learn it it is because of the teacher. Kids...

Lunch

First I have to say that I HATE it when people say, "if the kids do it, so should the adults." I mean REALLY? We are not on equal teams here. How about this ... I can eat and chat and I still...

I agree

Yep. I HATE that stuff. Somewhere someone thought that if the kids do it we should do it. Um...no. Those are the same people who believe that adults and kids should have the same rules. Sigh. I...

Colleague commits suicide

This weekend a colleague of mine committed suicide. He was very committed and well liked. One thing his goodbye letter stated is that he couldn't save as many kids as he would like. I would just...

Sorry...

So sorry this is happening. You have the right to be feeling all sorts of emotions right now. Cut yourself some slack. I am thinking of you!!

It's

They are looking for data and assessments. Be sure you know what assessments they use and how they measure it.

I just don't have it in me...

I am slowly transitioning into admin- I am guessing I will only be teaching a year or two longer. I know...I am going to the dark side...

Anyway, I have a new teaching partner this year. Brand...

Me too...

Being blamed for bad parenting, student mental illness, frankly for being alive.

Never being done with work

Being told we would do it if we love the children

So...

I really wouldn't label it a problem because they are Title 1. We are Title 1 - it doesn't mean it's a bad school. I agree that PBIS is not working - at least for us. It seems to just reward bad...

Said it best

Gdhrtdtchr said it well. A teacher whom I think is one of the best and I have been teaching with her for 9 years left the district yesterday because of the same thing. So sad.

Huh

Oh my Lord! If we left a student out we would lose our job. The kids do NOTHING and they get to do whatever they want. I hate it.

Well...

I worked my a$$ off for that masters degree. I include it in my email signature but just usually just "sign" my emails with my name. I am a professional and want parents to know I am dedicated.

I have found the old boys network is built out of old gym teachers, or they only taught a few years. Most of them think they are the sh$t. Our school district recently decided that you have to...

I am surprised

I thought everybody already did inclusion. I have been teaching 10 years in an urban school district and have always had inclusion. We don't have a Special Ed room. We have the Spec Ed teachers in...

Ha!

The only reason my own dumb district is going to use Danielson is because they feel it takes away bias from the reviews. We are being trained in it and can't remove bias at all. Sigh
