Definitely glorious...

I met a group of teachers from my old school today when one of our former colleagues was in from AZ where she now lives. Only three of us were not currently teaching. When I heard the number of...

I agree!

Even with a general sub plan template I filled in, it was a lot of work. I dreaded being out, especially since we use technology so much and we were not going to share passwords, so lessons had to...

Ugh...

I used to hate it when a new student moved into the class once the rules and routines were established, especially if it was a challenging student, and for some reason, it seemed like these late...

Don't miss/will miss

Don't miss writing endless lesson plans every week and school and district related paperwork and grading.

Will miss the relationships I had with some great kids, faculty and parents over the...

Beautiful part of the country!

So glad you are enjoying your trip! We have been to Gold Beach, Cannon Beach and Bandon, among other places. I remember crossing a very scary bridge on the northern edge of the coast to enter...

I agree with Amiga about checking finances...

Medical insurance is definitely something to be aware of if you go out early, because you are too young for Medicare, which begins at age 65. You can draw social security before your full SS age at...

So much more than a number...

I hate that we perceive our successes with our students as quantified by numbers these days. With the over-emphasis on data, it is hard to focus on other areas of growth that might not be so easily...

I agree...

We all work hard to make the lessons as engaging and creative as possible, but the content of some lessons do not lend themselves to creativity and deep engagement. There are only so many hours in...

Heat

I would do whatever you can do to be comfortable. We have not needed heat where I live yet, but I do have a couple of small space heaters from Target. One is in the bedroom and one is in the living...

Why not stay?

Sounds like a no-brainer to me. Enjoy your time!

Survey...

1. When reading a book/watching a movie, do you like hearing spoilers? Or would you prefer to find out the events as you read/watch them on your own?
Definitely no spoilers. I like to find out...

Not necessarily you...

Over the past few years, I have noticed that to some students, listening is optional and the respect for adults in general has greatly diminished. Even when parents are contacted, things don't...

Complicated problem but...

It's still your home. The fact that the dogs you both have had were welcomed in the past probably complicates things, but it's different now because you have a new home, your dog and hers don't get...

Toxic administrators...

Good luck tomorrow. It is so hard to want to work hard for a person like that. I will be thinking of you and I hope everything goes well.

I worked for a principal like that. I worked with my...

You certainly can forgive her, but that doesn't mean entering the same cycle of hurt that you were in. I would not be able to trust a "friend" like that after everything she did to you. If you do...

I think nurturing is part of most teachers' DNA. We don't want to offend or hurt the feelings of others, and might not want to appear selfish in our choices, when in reality, we should not have to...

Retirement is the BEST...

After a long 42 year career, I was more than ready to go out. I loved what I did, but the changes to the profession made the career I loved almost unrecognizable from when I started all those years...

Are you unionized?

You should have a right to safe working conditions (or as safe as possible). The fact that you are pregnant should make the administration overly protective of you. No one should expect to get hit on...

Did the people who have these complaints come to you first before coming to the administrator? Do their concerns have any merit? Was this the first you knew of these complaints or did you know and...

Great job!

Check Kohls. My friend bought some inexpensive clothes there when she was losing weight. Congratulations on your loss.
