In my experience (15 years of teaching) the know-it-all attitude is personality dependent as well as generational. I've worked with newer teachers who were anxious and eager for any help I could...

I don't think it's bad to learn alongside students - science really lends itself to that. It's really hard when you have to teach everything, though. I used to teach all the other subjects and found...

I teach a 6th/7th grade science class in which two of the students complained that they could not tolerate looking through the microscope because it made them dizzy/nauseous.

Thanks! I actually haven't been given anything in terms of requirements for choosing topics. I'm pretty much designing the curriculum on my own.

The irony is, this is a very responsible and trustworthy kid who always knows what is expected of him and always has the work done well. If she would step back and let him be, he'd be fine on his own.

We have already had the parent in and discussed the touching behavior. Apparently there has been a history of touching women but in the past it was a teacher, not a student. No red flags for sexual...
