Do you have a teachers-teachers account? These counties are ALWAYS posting that they're looking on there. I also find it effective to contact the schools and sometimes HR directly. Type a brief cover...

It is ironic that this is the first thing on this part of the boards today. I had a phone call with a grade grubber today. The child's overall grade is great and this particular child has exceptional...

Diy

I'm another that made my own. I used the cut outs in the teacher workroom to cut out a 1, 2, 3 and the words 'pencil up'. I glued those on to a poster board then wrote what they meant next to them....

I was a 1st year teacher in 4th last year. I tried centers and it was a lot of work for me and deemed not engaging enough by "the powers that be." I switched to novel study and never looked back. I...

ENY breaks it all the way down to a basic level using a lot of models to build background behind the concepts students need to know. Our teacher who have TAM and SPED classes love it. I am regular ed...

Tattling vs Telling

You know, I have nothing to hide. I come to work to do my job, yet I have been spied and reported on. The items are trivial and as someone else has said--taken out of context and based on...

They want to get ahead, plain and simple. They also may be doing dirt and want the principal to turn a blind eye.

Last Names Always

I always refer to parents by their last names since the names are in the child's records on the computer. Where I have issues is the woman's title. I will usually do a Ms. until the computer system,...

I felt "some type of way" about the entire thing. What high school did he go to? Did they not at least mention Greek mythology or the Achilles heel? After those questions...I felt sorry for him.

Loved it!

Thanks for posting. Looks like a person's evaluation has a lot to do with the elevator! I also find God has a sense of humor. My prayers are always answered in strange ways.

I'm super late at reply, but you're welcome. Our whole team isn't in agreement about NJ and our principal is pushing for uniformity, so I fear I will have to kiss Jersey goodbye. Good stuff anyhow!
