LOL Whoops! I didn’t mean to be confusing. I’m thinking that no counters might make it much harder to sell a house.

In my offer, I asked only for the chest freezer to be removed. And that they...

Thank You

I appreciate the feedback. I love the house, but the list price is at the top of my budget...AND in our area, the house is not a hot commodity. It’s a buyer’s market right now in our little rural...

No Counter?

So, some may remember that I began searching for a house about 6 months ago. You all gave excellent advice, and so...I need more! LOL

I made an offer on a house in the early part of Summer....

First of all, I hope you are doing and feeling well. I hope that you are winning your battle and I hope your health improves.

I am appalled by the lack of compassion and empathy for others that...

I would look for two positives and two negatives. Start with the positives - what is good about your data? What worked and was beneficial for your students? Then st the very end tack on a goal for...

Update - sort of

Thank you for your advice and even more, I appreciate your kind words. So much.

The student was absent Friday, so I’ve had a few days to consider the situation and make a plan. I’m going to start...

Morning Meeting

At the fourth grade level, I know the kids can lead it if you get them started/trained, because o had second graders running. Great for student led sections on your evaluation, too!

Student Issue - How to Handle?

I have a student who is in eighth grade. I had him last year as well, and I feel like we have a reasonable rapport.

Middle school is a weird time for kids. They’re figuring out who they are, and...

It is the parents who object. The majority of the comments come from other adults in the community.

Many students don’t see it as a big deal. Many of my own students say they know it’s something...

And I leave my own cellphone in my car.

Observation - “double standard”

There are two hot button issues going around our area right now, and I’ve noticed an interesting trend.

I completely understand where you’re coming from - it’s a popular blame game. I like to make sure to refer to these as “our kids,” because I’m an EL teacher, but they have another teacher (or many in...

I still think that there’s nothing wrong with copying out those problems for them. If you aren’t getting what you want, change the way you do it so that you DO get what you want. Scaffold, adjust,...

Know your problems ahead of time and copy them out for the week. Students must show work before it will be graded.

I teach middle school and sometimes copying is just a lot for them to handle...I...

Classroom Jobs

I had a daily messenger. That was all I needed. It was simple to go down the list of students in ABC order.

I think it’s more realistic and just cuts out the trouble of kids waving their hand in...

They must have - a plastic 2-pocket folder, a single subject notebook, a writing utensil, and a free reading book with them each day in order to be considered prepared for class.
