Play

My schedule is similar to others on this thread, with an hour of recess each day and 30 mins of play each afternoon, except on Fridays when we have an hour. I should say that my school day is...

Tummy time

I often get my kids to lay on their tummies during circle time. An OT once told me tummy time is still really important for kids until they're at least 7.

Since then I've found that plenty of...

Inappropriate testing & goals

We get pressure like that sometimes. After a few bad experiences speaking my mind, I just smile and nod. And then keep on doing what I believe is best for my kinders.

What's the worst that can...

Drama lama

Feeling low

Your admin doesn't get it. You deserve more support. <!--crocus-->

State testing doesn't usually measure progress, and that's what is really important. Sorry you're feeling low.

'c' schools

I started out working at a "rough" school and loved it. Super brilliant, passionate teachers who were extremely supportive of each other. There were some severe behaviours but they were well managed,...

Guns

Totally agree with Cruxian. Yes, bad things will always happen. But laws can and do prevent some of the bad stuff.

I am so, so thankful to live in a country with good gun laws. We used to have...

DeeDee

I realised after I posted that maybe I was being a bit hypocritical, as I remembered this did actually happen to me once. I was 18, and it was a job that paid below minimum wage- in cash!- but it...

Late

Not!
His supervisor needs to make it clear that he can't get away with that again.

I've never head of anyone being late to school for oversleeping. I think I'd lose my job! <!--eyebrow-->

kkkkkkkkkoa

I 100% agree with the first part of this. Structure, saying no, and consistent consequences are all important parts of my teaching. I'm not sure about that second bit though. None of my students are...

Out of control

I'd say that's the root of the problem, in a lot of cases :(

I've definitely seen most of those things (or some form of them). Dealing with them is rough. Currently I have a pretty great kinder...

I LOVE the casual teacher who replaces me when I'm sick. She is brilliant with my grade (kinders) and because she always covers for me, she knows and loves my kids nearly as much as I do.

Walkthroughs

I feel for you. We have observations where I am, but I've never heard of 'walk throughs'. It would seem pointless because my boss 'walks through' my classroom all the time. She helps with reading...

You're human. The way you feel is the way you feel. It would be nice to be so selfless that you wouldn't mind someone else getting the praise....personally, I'm not that generous yet. Working on it...

Rude parent

A parent was once quite rude to me. My boss spoke with her and the mother apologised to me!

I'm thankful for good admin. IMO, as soon as a parent is aggressive, the conversation should end...

Agree with pp

No to capitals! Learning lowercase letters is so much more useful.

Yes! I used to feel frustrated that my aide always arrived right on the bell, never a few minutes before so I could explain what I wanted her to. Then I found out how much she got paid. I was...

Defiant kids

Yes, this.

My boss came in for an observation once, in my second year. I had a tough group that year, and after having a total angel class the year before, I thought I was going to bomb. I had...

Guns?

Oops, sorry for dragging the thread off topic. It's a cultural thing. We've never had a school shooting in Australia, schools don't have 'security officers', and if we did they sure as heck would not...

Miss Agnes

Good on you for figuring it out (if true). It does seem odd that her mother didn't let you know- let alone take her out of school for a few days- but I guess it would make more sense if they didn't...

Disrespect

I'm stuck on the fact that you have a gun in your school. Freaky.

I agree with PP- teachers have a big influence on kids but nothing like parents- or peers!

I've read some of your other posts and I'm thinking you've lost this battle. Game over Red Rover. These kids don't respect you.

If I were you, I'd do as your P suggested and play music while they...

Subs

Subs can get sick like anyone else. It does such if they're just picking up another job, but I'd give the benefit of the doubt. Life happens.
