Try taking vitamin b12. My dr even wrote me a prescription for it so it would be less expensive. But even if you buy over the counter, well worth it! I swear by it.

interview questions

I sometimes have asked for a copy of the interview questions. I'm a visual learner. It is hard to answer a question that has many parts. Or if a copy is not provided, jot down the question in...

How would you want your own children's teacher to dress? Will the students really respect someone...

classroom overload

I hate this classroom. Unless this is a classroom with many IEP accommodations, items are very much unnecessary. This screams to the district, "You pay us so much money, I can buy these things on...

Better get ur stuff

I wouldn't make this teacher wait until preplanning time. First it will take a very long time, days probably. Second, she may start without your friend removing her stuff, and move it out of the way...

better than numbing

Get knocked out - numbing never helped me, and that's what my anxiety was about, feeling the pain. It may cost an extra $300 but it is SOOOOO worth it!!!!!

One year I got very fed up with all the nonacademic activities. It was during the 1st nine weeks of school, I taught K. The last straw was the day administration had a Dog Show that took up 30 mins....

yes, fight!

Hang in there and smile. He's trying to scare you out - don't fall for it! Show great representation, they will leave you alone if it turns out to be nothing. What a jerk!

I would never grade any work completed when I'm not present. Who knows what the sub is doing there when you are not. I just provide review work that I can toss when I get back. YES, busy work, but...
