Wrong - wrong - wrong....

Not only is the letter contradictory and poorly written, it is just wrong. The over all message is wrong.

We are a small, rural district in one of those places where the numbers were near zero. We...

Mrs. Perkins

She has the Dolch sight words in most configurations.

She has ppts (and they transfer into Google Slides) with and without sound. She has the printable flashcards,...

Yep, I'd leave it to the families to decide

The over the ear headphones are harder to store and harder to lose... (but easier to label with names, etc.)

Yes, I think you are correct--

as the shields are to be an addition to, not a replacement of, the standard mask. It is probably better than nothing but they are still not in compliance with the mask rule.

I thought the shield...

Nope--Would not pay it.

I agree that it is outrageous to think they are suddenly acceptable since we paid to wear them--either they are or they aren't... Donating to a cause does not change that.

Most of the work pants...

Same as gofish

but I use one laptop and one phone. I am the Host on the laptop usually. I use the meeting id and passcode to enter the meeting on my phone.

That would not fly here, even with Covid...

I am not sure if it is a State thing, Federal, Title I or what, but I am requires to sign a paper each year stating that 100% of my instructional time was/is spent with SpEd students only.

Yes and no

They may not get the same experience with in-person Classroom management but they will get to experience seeing virtual classrooms and students "managed" by experienced teachers.

This will...

Under present circumstances,

I definitely wouldn't give them up. You might need them for yourself this year.

We are here in the Midwest

You are luckier than we are in one respect. We have ALWAYS started with 3 teacher days prior to two student days to go over back to school process prior to jumping in. Not this year. Teacher days...

It would not

For me

I think that Burnout is an umbrella term and demoralization is just one of the categories underneath.

Demoralization is one of the things that can lead to burnout. But, on the other hand, LOTS...

Thank you for sharing.

I am now part of several groups on FB set up for Special Education teachers. I just trust PT more.

I will be following this with interest-just in case.

I am dreading it either way...

We haven't received any word on what our plan actually contains. Last official word was that we were intending to go back in person with precautions in place.

But, since then, our county is...

Proof will be hard to come by...

I am not sure that anyone will tell you outright that is the real reason you might be passed over.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that this is the case. Some states, where a Masters is required...

Not a fan of using a Fan itself!

What type of fan are you referring to?

If you are using it for COVID, a regular standing or box fan is illogical due to the fan blowing everyone's germs around.

They already say a toilet...

LOL. I'd call it more Fear of the KNOWN.

That describes my class as well. They will wear no masks or fight compliance all day. I figure they will be exempted due to disability.

I also have two in Depends that also pick below the...

In our district,

we closed in March like everyone else. We reopened in June for an online summer school for some HSers.

About 6/15, the Statewide restrictions lifted more so we had a modified Prom and a modified...

I sure don't claim to know about you guys

or your present situation. I do know that my adult DD was overpaid in March of 2019. She was a waitress in a midsized restaurant and applied for unemployment when she was laid off for the winter. ...

Not unless you count

wild speculation, endless brainstorming, mental planning and reorganizing, and racing thoughts that keep my brain awake at night...:p

I agree with Haley as well

Are you on a Group plan or family plan?

When DH and I went in last, they offered insurance to us just like you--not usual.

We are on a family plan with 5 phones and a tablet. We had DD's iPhone X on insurance and they mentioned that...

Don't get too discouraged yet.

Most schools are just now getting to the deadline for teaching contract renewals in a regular school year. Resignations and transfer can still occur. This can create openings as those teachers also...
