No Way

I used to spend a ton of money at school. I cannot explain how DONE I am with that. I am also not spending a dime on digital resources or anything. I am not only insulted by the attitude of our admin...

PD for ?

We had none, nothing, nada.

And plans for our training are basically "figure it out" and "teach each other." It's pretty sad. Then again, I hope they are paying you for that time, that is a lot.

Same Boat

Except we are starting soon in the hybrid model. We got a couple of vague emails about teaching kids online and in person at the same time. They are telling us that we need to do this and that, but...

Not Safe

To me, the only thing "safe" now is 100% online. We are mostly doing hybrid. However, now some kids will come all four days? Some just two. I think the ones who are coming all four are special...

That's Horrible

They are doing home checks? I don't want anyone in my house unless I invite them. That really seems unethical and dangerous. Like let me spread germs to everyone.

Out of Practice

I'm having the opposite feeling. I usually like to be alone, but I really haven't done anything or seen too many people for months. This will probably last about a day though!

Masks for All Except...

So our district starts out strict, but then backs down. So we are all supposed to wear masks except when not talking, being distanced, eating, if you are learning support, have a 504, or another...

We Asked the Same Thing

We've had two or three pointless Zooms. We also have one on Friday at 8 am for some reason. They go through all these plans. Right now, we are at hybrid and possibly going all online. Cases in our...

Safer at Home

The few days I went back to school since March were terrifying. Our school is not set up at all for distancing. Our office is cramped and secretaries were not wearing masks. Our principal did not...

Not Sure

I'm not sure what will be done. I have a feeling that maybe at first we will get a token amount of cleaning supplies so they can tell parents we have them. However, I remember when we got ONE...

We have some layoffs here, with more to come. I think that I have enough time to not be laid off, but I could certainly get moved. Until I know for sure, I'm not doing a thing.

I feel terrible...

So Sorry

This is awful. Like you said, by the time they have symptoms, it's too late. I'm so frustrated because I have friends and relatives going to hot spots to vacation and coming home. I know that some...

I'm terrified. I really feel like there is no way to go back safety.

People say other countries who went back to school did fine. Hmm, Israel? France? They had to shut down a bunch of schools. I...

Temperature Checks

For Covid-19, I think the temperature checks are pointless. It was different for SARS where the people spreading it HAD symptoms. So I wouldn't worry too much about that.

I teach junior high and...

The Vacant House

Wow, I also have a vacant house across the street. The owner was supposed to move in after he retired, but never did. It's been years now and it looks vacant. I don't have the music neighbors, but we...

That's Awful

What do people who have kids/pets do? We have one faculty meeting a month that we are contracted to stay for. Like another posted said if it runs over, people start to just get up and leave. (It's...

Office Paperwork! Best Advice.

This is the best advice ever. I always had a clipboard that I put all the office crap on. As soon as I could I filled and returned forms BEFORE I lost them. The amount of paperwork can be...

We Don't Know Yet

As far as we know, we are only going to have half the kids at one time. No one knows what they will actually look like.

As to the masks, I think only teachers are required to wear them. They...

Getting a new wallet!

I have heard that they can somehow swipe your card with readers on the machine or when you walk past. Thanks for the head's up. I guess I need to upgrade my wallet and not carry a bunch of cards with...

Concerns and More Concerns

I've basically been a shut-in since this began. The weird thing is that I am eager to go back because I found the online teacher just not engaging and stressful. However, at the same time, I'm...

We only have one ELA class. Really, it's not enough time to do everything we need to do.
I try to set up a routine. Like do a grammar warm-up MWF and on T/TH do editing. If we are doing a short...

I agree with previous posters. Boundaries are a must. I made a pact with myself that I wouldn't Zoom or call students. I had some coworkers that were on the phone day and night with parents and...

It sounds like a mess. We were required to complete a training course the second week that we were out of school. They forbade us from teaching the first week, but then made us have five extra...

Online Pics

I was pretty horrified to see pictures of teachers with arms around students. Some had masks, some didn't. The four or five times I went into work, we all stayed pretty far apart when possible. Some...

About the Bleach

I can get bleach here. However, I think the bleach/water solution is only good for a few hours. I was spraying my groceries with it after they got delivered.

I did order small amounts of hand...
