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. ...

I teach MS/HS self contained and a have ten yo in there due to his behavior-

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

Her gut feeling is mine as well.

In MO, the authorities offered the recommendations/suggestions with the caveat that local districts have the authority to implement what works best in their area. ...

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...

I know that we too often

look at the diagnosis first-but that is only a label for eligibility. For instruction, we have to look at her needs. So, to start, don't focus on the TBI. Look for instructional strategies for...

I hate to hear this

I really do--but if you are sure it is not for you, get out now. Each year that passes can make it harder to walk away from... I have college debt and don't want more, I have money invested, I have...

I think Dr. G is on the right track.

Build your relationships-be it students, parents or staff- and some of that becomes automatic. I also think "Essentials" vary by person. Mental health is a diverse area and, since it involves...

I am in a public school in the midwest

I too have a combination of very low and low(ish) students needing lots of mods and/or accommodations. Most of my students are in very few true gen ed classes at the high school level--mainly art,...

If you get two "page size" pieces,

You can cut them out, tape them together with plastic electrical tape or 2" box tape and make your own page pockets for worksheets or station activities.

I teach HS SpEd

I had each open a Google Slides ppt on their drive AS a journal. Each slide is a different day. I will not expect a slide every day.

Since they are all shared with me, I can respond back on...

I think all of it has its' place

I too remember a similar tool in my early years. I have searched for something like this since you posted this.

We did that back in the day...

but waited a little while in the year so it was warmer out.

We tended to go to the lake that day so this is way too early for us.

It was unofficially official. Everyone knew in advance but...

I think it STINKS!

With this explanation:

It is totally uncalled for! If it was a casual daily sub, it is bad enough but she is a full-time employee--with her own mailbox. The valentines should have been for...

I was a Social Worker

prior to being a teacher. (I graduated college with a double major and my teacher's certificate at the same time.) I always knew I wanted to help kids--be it in schools or at home.

It definitely...

I guess I've been lucky in that way...

I've been in three districts in two different states. All as SpEd and all had the same tech as any other teacher. My classroom now has a SmartBoard, a laptop with a dock, a desktop and 1:1 Student...

I concede.

And again, I am sorry that happens to anyone. Disrespect is not professional in any job.

FWIW, I subbed for 6 years before teaching. I was a para for a year between years 7 and 8. I subbed...

luv2teach, I hate that for you in that case.

Like I said, I've been in schools for over 20 years now in multiple states and all age levels and have had that (or assumed that) to be the case. I know now more than ever that I've been really...

It is frustrating

I teach SpEd to ED/BD and those in need of self-contained. I have 9 HSers and 1 3rd grader. It is frustrating. I will grant you that. About 3-4 of the HSers are low functioning only and the rest...

We are small school.

And in a small rural town. At the time, we are also one of the largest employers in town. So, yes. We have many family members and spouses among the staff.

In a town like ours, there is no way...
