The magnet schools in our district have to keep the student the entire school year unless the child is a discipline problem.

Bless You

One year I had a second grade class with 28 students. The principal couldn't get her boss to close our grade level to new students. Finally, her boss walked in my classroom and only then did my...

I've always said

To find the school that is perfect for you not the perfect school. I didn't like schools with overly-involved parents. They thought that they knew more than the teachers. So, I don't teach at those...

I had the same thing happen to me around my tenth year of teaching. I was no stranger to rough classes, but that year had me crying in the parking lot BEFORE school. I had a student with cerebral...

That's a bit much

The school where I'm teaching now only have three rotations in fifth. All other grades (1st-4th) have two rotations. My previous school only had three rotations for second. Five rotations is insane. ...

Don't Do It

This happened about 4 years ago where I live. Zero dropout rate and almost 100% attendance at a HIGH SCHOOL no less. People got fired. Some went to prison all because their principal told them to...

No Way

I just went school supply shopping on yesterday and spent less than $100. I even bought extra to keep at home. This even included paper towels, hand sanitizer, and tissues. I will probably go get an...

I feel the same

I got overwhelmed before school even started. There's a lesson plan template that we have to use which I hate. I received three 3 inch binders that must be kept up-to-date. We received training on...

Bathroom Breaks

I despise bathroom breaks, and I may be forced to do them as well. It's ironic that the administrative team thinks that not having bathroom breaks disrupts instructional time when it's the exact...

Read the Lease/Parking Agreement

In our lease, we were assigned a parking spot. If someone parked there, we were allowed to call the tow truck company. Since the tow company had a contract with the complex, they had their numbers...

Blocked Sites

I find it amazing when school districts block Facebook since the district has a Facebook page!

I agree that you should call the union as well to see what your rights are. In my state, with documentation, you can put in writing that you no longer want the student in your class. The principal...

Don't Give Up

Maybe, you can start fresh. Like a PP said, they may not be able to handle choice and a whole lot of movement. I've had classes in which I had to be almost militant in my classroom management. It...

Teach Them

I agree that they should learn how to say your name. I have a very common last name. Yet, the students still wanted to call me Mrs. C. I politely told them that I expected to be called by my full...

That's A Lot

Our school had a strict 15 minute observation time for parents. If there was an issue, we would have to direct that parent to administration. She felt that anything longer than 15 minutes was a...

I can't believe that she had the audacity to grab a fan and go without asking politely. She would NEVER get a fan from me. Rude.

Pacing guides

Our curriculum department does this so that the entire district is pretty much on the same page. That way if a kid moves, they won't miss anything or be too far ahead.

All kids

All kids try to get over by using semantics. I didn't touch Johnny. I touched his backpack (which is on his back).

I Like It

I've always wanted to learn how to use that machine. Maybe you could also include a video of yourself using it for future reference. Make it available to staff only. I agree that hands-on would be...

Sounds like

a scripted program similar to C-Scope that Texas teachers may have heard of from a few years ago. New teachers liked it. Experienced teachers hated it.

I remember Open Court. I liked the program,...

Just when you think that you have heard it all.

There was no way that our textbook clerk would have EVER allowed this to happen. If I had a couple of low students that may need something from a...

The first time that I saw this room, my first thought was...claustrophobic. My second thought was...cluttered.

I either read or watched a video on this room with before and after pictures. If I'm...

Second Grade

This will be my 9th year teaching second grade. I've also taught first and third. For me, the biggest difference is maturity. Third graders, at least for me, were a lot more mature than second...
