How Handy

is your Hubby? We just had our bathtub removed and a shower built in with a small wall. Plumber $220, tile $1090. I supplied the tile. I'm now trying to finish the vanity with two new sinks...

Make A Family Tree

I used this book about 2 years ago. And the students where in the higher level reading group. They had a lot of questions about who was related to who, and what type of powers did the gods have,...

We Just Came Back

from San Diego. Go to Horton Plaza down town and eat at the Panda Inn for Chinese or to The Chicken Pot Pie Shop. I happen to live in San Diego along time ago and loved the last place. Spoke to a...

It's No Different

if you're a male. I have the drama class from H*ll. Both boys and girls. I finally had enough and had two students moved that were the most disrespectful. That sent a message to the rest. One...

A week

Ours closes on the 13th, report cards go out on the 20th. Kids have until Monday to get all late work in. We do not post electronically, so it's all by hand.

is always hard. Think about what would happen if you stayed and the other teacher your "mentee" got transferred to elementary. Her new friend, your ex-friend would probably make life difficult. ...

Press Charges

What if this student loses it again and you can't protect a child in your class. Because it has already happened and you did nothing you may be held responsible. Just saying "CYA" especially if...

I was feeling like a Valentine Scrooge, several of my teammates are going to get their class pizza and have parties. I'm just not feeling it this year, especially with these 5th graders. They think...

Assault Charges

should be filed by the teacher that was hit. I know in our state we have 24 hours from the time of incident to file the charges, and probably a restraining order.

I had a student similar to this...

I found a PSP in my class and no one fessed up to who's it was (because they are not allowed in school.) So I took it to the office gave it the AP, and washed my hands of it.

A few days later I...

union contract. Then if we clocked out later than our contract time we would have to get "Comp" time or paid for the extra time.

A principal tried to have teacher's sign in and then dock them...

In our district you are not permitted to work under a spouse in any supervisory capacity. I personally wouldn't want to any way. There would be staff always questioning decisions made, ect.

write-ups. I know it sounds to extreme, but I had to do it this year. My kids are just out of control and disrespectful to me and all the specials teachers. I just couldn't take it anymore. I...

How about forming a behavior plan with the principal, student and mom present. Outline what will and what will not be tolerated in the classroom. Even think about having either parent come in to sit...

Check with Your Union

In our state you can lose your license if you are caught cheating or altering answers. Also, the whole school's tests are invalidated. I would report the principal and have another teacher ready to...

Class Limits

Doesn't your state mandate class limits? I can't see how a classroom of 32 students in elementary would be very productive. In the state I work in if the average is 25 per class then either a...

I read it

one year to my class. I had to assign roles to different students to keep up with the interactions and plot lines. I think the only thing "risque" was the relationship between the sitter and the...

Pick your

worse offender and make an example of him/her. I have several in my class that are just as you describe them. I picked the ring leader and already sent him to the office and had a parent teacher...

Are You SPED

certified? ESL doesn't translate to SPED specializing. Do you have either an EA or SPED teacher to team teach with? I'm asking this because I had the inclusion class last year and I had a SPED...

Sleep Apnea?

Do you snore a lot or stop breathing several times an hour? My BP has been going up and I wasn't sure why. My wife had me do a sleep study because I snore really loud and stop breathing for several...

I agree

with the previous poster. You or the other team member should become lead. Or better yet have your own team meetings without Mrs. Rude. Not to be vindictive but to make sure that you have a fair...

Sounds like

just a fancy name for grade level meetings. The reason for a PDT is because they go to train and learn about what the district focus is and how to implement curriculum. They (PDT's) don't have a...

Point of Confusion

Why do you have to teach/train the other teachers? The PLC model we are using is centered around a Professional Development Teacher-PDT. She runs the show. She goes to weekly training and then...
