Planning

I totally get the micromanaging. I dread Thursdays because I'm about to spend my planning hour going through a totally pointless form to "plan" for next week. We have to plan everything down to the...

Tardy

We cannot mark students "tardy" either. If they show up at all - even the last 10 mns, we count them as present.

Agreed

It would seem less wasteful if I had around 35 kids total. I did get a slew of "mail undeliverable" emails back.

Morning Laughs

In case anyone is in need of a hearty chuckle or a good old case of "fact is stranger than fiction", I present to you the events of yesterday/today.
1. Faculty meeting Tuesday to discuss district...

I'm sorry you guys are going that direction. I agree with PP - if you can ignore and do what you know is best, do it (and tell so I can live vicariously as I plan out every second of a lesson in...

I love it, Mikecoffee!! LOL I can get that way too if I'm not careful. I don't particularly care for any aspect of my career right now except for my kids.

Glad you're able to keep your cool with him! I would've lost it with the attitude. Probably why I'm twice divorced and happily alone.

Time between evals?

Good morning! I was observed unannounced yesterday (had to go in and provide self-scores on every indicator afterwards). One of my coworkers made the comment that the observation was too soon since...

Glad I'm not crazy

I hate that so many can relate to this! I'm getting my masters in higher education administration (if the discussion post requirements don't kill me) in the hopes of moving out of K-12 for every...

Let It Go?

During our PLC, I was told I would be taking and submitting the form (it's involved) for the month. I said okay but sounded less than enthused because I already feel swamped by paperwork and real...

I had a kid lie about me like that and a new principal who took her word over my five years of dedicated service. I was heartbroken and paranoid the rest of the year. It was the first step that woman...

We could choose to go into the building or work from home for virtual. I'm at home. I'd go in to school if I didn't live an hour away.

Thoughts?

My district is planning to phase back to school from 100% virtual. K-5 at the beginning of Jan. And 6-12 in the middle of Jan. Teachers and students can choose by next Friday to remain virtual or go...

Oh my gosh - I'm glad to know I'm not alone, but what the actual crap is wrong with helping teachers balance their workloads so we are allowed the time needed to be better humans and educators?? All...

Things that bring me joy:
- painting (fluid acrylics)
- playing with my 2 dogs

Update:
We were given some guidance. We are not to give a 0 but we are to put an "I" and then allow time for make up assignments. I'm good giving all the time in the world but it's pointless it said...

True

...but that's what a lot of parents do now. Forget handling your own situation with maturity - just threaten to tattle to the P.

I agree with previous poster who suggested the change in wording...

Time

I agree with previous posters. This is my eighth year in public schools. My last two years were awful and I was really ready to find a new career. This year, however, I moved schools and my kids are...

Grades?

So....I need some grades in my grade book by this Friday. We are 100% virtual and starting week 5 today. Due to my ignorance of working our LMS, student ignorance of navigating our LMS, student...

Yay!

I'm so glad to read that I'm not crazy for thinking this is too much right now!

Thank you all for the suggestions on making a master set that can be copied and edited each week. I think that will...

Our lesson plans have to be in the form of PowerPoint slides. One slide for each aspect of the lesson each day (bellwork, agenda, standards, I do, we do, you do, organizers, exit slip). They are due...

It's a lot

I never did blankets but I did wear very large shrugs and scarves I could wear around my shoulders or waist. Same difference but no one ever said a word about it.
