Have you been under stress lately?

My last few years of teaching, I could have lost my head if it was not attached. I was tired and stressed.
I always joked about : senior moments.
Now that I am not going 100 mph, I tend to remember...

As a teen, I hung around people

who cussed a lot. It rubs off on people if they are around it too long.
Some people are totally unaware of how often they cuss. It is a normal part of speech to them.
The only way that will change...

The boxes are beautiful!

I am not a chocolate person. Once in a blue moon,
I like dark chocolate.
You have something way better, I think, closer to home.

I taught 2, 3,4th.

There were tests we gave 4x a year in 2nd grade that we were NOT allowed to read to them.
Those tests had minimal reading on them, but they did have to read it themselves unless they had an IEP.

I'd stop using Safari for awhile.

Just to see. I do think it is a scam especially since you don't recognize the sites.
I get crap like that on my phone sometimes.
It is good to not click anything when in doubt.

Potlatch is used by a certain group here.
Is pitch in a Spanish type saying?

OK I am feeling guilty

and will confess.
I did learn something too from your post.
Although, I'd never throw food on the floor, or go to such an extreme, I am guilty of sneaking the dogs some food under the table when...

You are smart to lay low

this year and handle it with grace if you know it will benefit you to get out of sped.
I know it is tough because once they have you there, it is hard to replace you.

I am mad and upset for you and child.

I would not even talk to a director. I'd be out of there. There is absolutely NO reason good enough for that child's diaper not to have been changed. I never was a fan of daycare and only used it for...

I knew a K teacher who used to say:


She called the kids her people! Maybe you had to know her, but it was funny!
Her little peeps listened.

Yes, it is good to pass on ....

especially if you have older parents who look around online.
My dad got scammed by a few things.
1x someone froze his computer somehow.
There was a number to call for help. He called and for a few...

I was wondering before I clicked. <!--giggle-->
I figured though PT is a pretty "tame" place, so it probably had to do with wood!
Sorry, though! I do not know the answer. :)

I went through a time when I was

so exhausted that I did dip_ things regularly.
I remember standing by the front door of my house and classroom both with my car starter in my hand.
I'd click a couple of times and wonder why the...

I thought about counting change

and telling time on analog clocks.
Both seem to be skills no one uses anymore.
Kids look at their phones for the time and parents no longer use cash.
When we grew up, we could buy things with...

I used to get at least 1 a yr

before I retired.
Almost all of them had to do with having zero control while everyone (parents, admin) was watching and judging!
1x I had 50 kids in my class and I had been moved to kindergarten....

I am sorry you are going through this.

Coaches can be of great help if they are the right person and are not put under pressure to make you do a bunch of extra work.
When they are pressured to be a part of admin or middle management is...

I was in a district that made us give every

student a 50 no matter what. Then we were told we had to reteach until every child had a 70%.
If you had any old 50's in a gradebook, you had obviously been unsuccessful with that student....

Are you paying by the hour or job?

If you are paying by the job, she is probably just checking to see if everything is up to your expectations.

If you are paying by the hour and she needs the money, I am pretty sure she'd dust your...

I am glad you got home

in 1 piece. That does sound like more than enough excitement for a long time. Very scary!
I hope you get rested up.

I never had time in the day

for everything they wanted me to teach the last maybe 7 years.
So many things were added into our teaching duties that academics would suffer if you truly did them all the way they wanted you to do....

The Great American Novel- LP's

At 1 school, the admin scanned them and made comments and asked questions.
At my last school, the only reason the P would read your LP's is if he wanted to give you a hard time.
I used 1 of my last...
