Music teacher here, and I have always taught from the first full day right up until the last full day, sometimes if we start/end on a half our classes don't meet, but sometimes we do. About the only...

I teach in Kanasa, think I saw that one district's Union was recommending it. I have taken my summer checks in a lump sum for years, it just makes sense for my savings account to benefit if I can. I...

I had a P that would send messages she was unsure of to herself first. I think it helped her get the vent out first, and probably helps see what the words look like in black and white. I have...

I am a music teacher, and I have had a wide variety of students in my class. Once a student was prone to running the room (he did have a para, but he was fast!). He would climb the risers, crawl...

Sadly, this must be pretty common. As I read your post, it sounded so much like what I went through at my last school that I actually looked to see if I had written it and forgotten! Where I am now...

I was pulled out of class and yelled at right outside my classroom door once. I admit I was angry and yelled back, I wish I had reponded better. It caused my personal morale to dip so much that I was...

How much actual free choice time do the kids have during the day (how much recess, how structured is their lunch time, etc) I think kids might grow tired of "mandated" brain breaks over time if they...

From a teacher and a parent perspective, I don't think they accomplish much in the child's mind. However, they do provide documentation the types of behavior and the times of day that seem to be the...

If you think that you crossed a line, consider offering an apology to the student, it will help both of you put it behind you and could help you connect with them. Obviously you know whether or not...

Having a good year

I changed districts this year, so I have a short (less than 10 miles) commute to work after living just blocks away from my last school. It was the best change ever! My new school is stable,...

My former school caters to angry parents. Squeaky wheels get lots of grease, which, unfortunately means that the kids of those who don't make a stink get the raw end of the deal. I've seen kids take...

Kids behavior is through the roof here, and I don't buy that it is just that "parents don't teach them manners" (a common excuse for many of my colleagues). I think school is ridiculously stressful...

When I worked in my sons school, we had a much better time when he could handle things from a parent end. I think that is better all around when possible. But it is stressful, I know.

It's an awful feeling to think you have someone's support and find out you don't. I'm sorry you had to go through it.

laura, it sounds like you have made a good faith effort to talk to your colleague, so I wouldn't label it "tattling", which to me is when others go to admin before bringing it up to the teacher.
