Ditto

What they said... What I am hearing is that learning doesn't have to be drudgery.

Defining participation...

I have several friends who are self-declared, well-adjusted (and quite happy) introverts and they often share some of the difficulties they experienced in a system that values "participation" and...

Looking differently...

As a somewhat retired HR professional, I'd offer a couple of thoughts and suggestions, admitting that the hiring process for teachers is probably a bit different than in the private sector where I...

I'm ambivalent but lean towards the sense that it's a bad idea. I also recognize that there are situations (small schools/districts) where it can't be avoided. But I also see some red flags when a...

As the self-appointed unofficial school photographer, I would just add a caution... if you use Google Drive (or any other online storage), remember to think through permissions, particularly if you...

There might also be a difference...

I agree with Kelticmom regarding kids' memory... and would add that I don't think kids distinguish between "fun" and "exciting." They tend to remember exciting.

It depends...

Because of where my head, heart, body (and age) is... I would say "yes!" before you finished the question.

But it's a very individual answer. I see a lot of good thoughts in the thread... and...

Great insight, Done19!

Yep, it's a proven fact that we tend to like best the people who are most like us. It's also true that kids who get labeled "good" are sometimes the sneakiest--because they can be! Objectivity can be...

There may be two different issues here... one specific to the third-grade team in the OP. The more general issue is whether or not admin fosters effective teamwork across the grades, throughout the...

So far...

Our program is a bit structured... the helpers don't just show up. Typically, the helpers are kids who have some interest in working with younger kids (they have the approval of their homerun...

Variables...

There are lots of variables in behavior... As others have said, the patterns are often repeatable and predictable but one truly never knows. In my report to the regular teacher, I often use shortcuts...

Hard question...

I would say this: age is not a factor. I was older than you when my then principal tried very hard to talk me into getting an advanced degree and becoming certified. I opted not to go that route for...

Quickly and effortlessly...

We are part of the "regular" payroll... bi-weekly. So days worked during a two-week period are paid on the following Friday, direct deposit if you so choose.

Contact the police...

Do NOT wait for another incident. You have clearly been assaulted and it seems to me threatened... whether or not it rises to criminal threatening I can't say. Act as a private citizen and protect...

Reassuring...

Thank you. This is reassuring... And I think I understand not trusting oneself--that's why connections and hotlines become important. They are about someone who cares, will listen, and gently but...

So far, NH has the record! Rural Maine... I don't have an exact number but we're around 300 PK-8 with about 100 high school students. It has some great benefits and some big challenges.
