That sounds so good!

We haven't been able get decent meat where I live for the last couple of months.
I had to throw out 2 packages of meat (after I cooked them) last week. For me to do that, they had to be BAD.

I shop pick up now, but...

when I saw someone like that, I quickly slipped down another aisle. I have always been aware of my surroundings, so I spot people a mile off. :)

This is my 1st year too....

Same here! :)
I was planning retirement for the next yr, but I seriously prayed for God to show me if this should be my last year way before Covid started.
I know I am not responsible for Covid...

That is way cool!

I miss the days when you'd check your mailbox for letters. Now I just get bills! ;) There is something about knowing they planned ahead, took the time, and thought of you.
You have an awesome 90 yr...

I have had both chicken pox and shingles

I remember my chicken pox was all over every inch of my body. My Kids got it too. It did not seem like their cases were as bad as I remember mine.
I got shingles on a quadrant of my head. At 1st it...

This is a great place for teachers!

I think I popped on PT in 2014 and was hooked. :) Over the years, I have found some of the most awesome people. Some are very supportive. Others can make you laugh when you need a good chuckle....

Nope, nope, nope!

If they needed someone to teach online next yr, I'd do it happily.
We are getting ready for a surge of tourists coming in for the summer despite quarantines in place. ( They are not enforced.)

I work in a district like you describe...

really hard for people to get their foot in.....and so many apply for 1 job. However this yr, has changed the way some people think about teaching.
They have hired to fill a few vacancies already, ...

That makes sense. ( Not a strong union)

Sorry! I worked in a right to work state for about 12 years, the district was good to us, but they needed teachers there badly at that time.
Oh, I remember Project Based Learning from over 20 years...

Someone who doesn't have a decent union....

1x, I chose to spend the summer preparing to teach a new subject area. Back in the days before computers. ( My choice, to be prepared) I put together everything I'd need for the 1st 9 weeks of...

I'd hopefully be praying to God for his peace. It sounds like your mind is running full speed on what next year brings. When I was younger, I experienced a lot of anxiety. The only way I keep my mind...

First, I am sorry you could not keep the

class intact. I have done both. Usually intact, but 1 yr, we had to take some kids out due to a new teacher who came 2 weeks into the year due to overcrowding.
The yr went fine. I think 1 person...

Good job!

You covered your butt by saying you were willing to help someone else! :)
You should be in good shape! ;)

That is odd to me...

Is he doing it to make it look like his own idea? If yes, I'd feel hurt too. Some people always want to be center stage.....Even if he is funny and nice, he sounds like he has a strong need to feel...

I have taught 30 yrs now....

I understand...

We have a couple who like to stir the pot at our school. It has been nice to not even have to deal w/ that for ages. ( Includes cattiness, backstabbing, and bickering)
I have been going back to get...

I'd approach it more like Emily

Don't worry, though! Our school started with the same approach of call everyone. We had to have daily contact in some form.
Some parents here have up to 7 kids. Most have 2-4.
With every teacher...

Our building is much like yours.

I will have to go back to pack up, but a couple of assistants, the P, a secretary, lunch people, and custodians are in the building at all times.
Only 1 of the above seems to be taking this...

I do not think online school is ideal...

Kids need to be protected too though.
I actually think districts should be offering "buy outs" of contracts for teachers who have worked for years and do not feel comfy going back due to risk...

Parents have most of the control/ The P

does what they say if he can. It does all depend on where you teach.
I have been in the same boat as Tiny, where 1 loud teacher would demand certain kids and the less vocal teachers got what was...

It has been refreshing/ interesting to read

your thoughts. I am unsure of the Englishism's place or governor.

No! You are not crazy!

Is this PreK or K? I'd be pulling my hair out if someone told me to spend 4 weeks on 0-5.
I really do not know how sped or younger grades have that much patience. I am pretty patient, but 4 weeks...
