Throughout my entire career, I have been the "wrong age" for the staffs that I've worked on. Just starting out, I was 22 while the rest of the teachers were in their 30s-40s. They were nice enough to...

When I first started at my current school, they had just added 6th grade to elementary the previous school year. Before that, middle school was 6-8. So a bunch of middle school teachers who taught...

I received my first dose of Pfizer on Tuesday the 16th. I had a very mildly sore arm that night/the day after. Enough to make me feel like they really put something in there LOL but not even that...

Teachers kept getting pushed down the list here and I was so afraid that by the time I could get vaccinated, it would be J&J. Obviously something is better than nothing, but I would have peeved if I...

I have two thoughts. One, IMO emphasis on state testing is hugely to blame for this. Elementary schools don't focus on Science/SS because they're so worried about state testing for ELA and Math. When...

I'm 7 minutes into the 45 minute video and I'm already even more annoyed than when I started. The student they're profiling is in middle school, transitioning to HS. Yeah, it totally makes sense for...

Student led IEPs (long)

This is unrelated to the 6th grade question I asked below :rolleyes:. I am pretty steamed right now. My sped director just sent out a 45 minute video that she wants all of our teams to watch about...

I used to have neighbors that had white lights on their porch all year long. It didn't bother me, but I could see how some would think it was "never taking the Christmas lights down" since many...

I really liked the first several episodes, but now I feel like it's delving into "ridiculous" territory. I'm not sure if I'm going to stick with it long term.

Soft and gooey all of the way. Hard cookies aren't worth eating, IMO. That's why I've never gotten the fascination with girl scout cookies- not worth the calories for me!

In my area those intent forms aren't binding in any way. They're just for planning purposes. I can't imagine anywhere where an intent form is binding, but you can always ask your union (or HR if you...

I'd heard that about electric heat as well. In the state I live in now I've always had natural gas. It's very cheap. Back when I lived in a 650 sq. ft. apartment I paid $30-40 per month for heat and...

Student participation in IEP meeting
