I agree...

We all work hard to make the lessons as engaging and creative as possible, but the content of some lessons do not lend themselves to creativity and deep engagement. There are only so many hours in...

Heat

I would do whatever you can do to be comfortable. We have not needed heat where I live yet, but I do have a couple of small space heaters from Target. One is in the bedroom and one is in the living...

Why not stay?

Sounds like a no-brainer to me. Enjoy your time!

1. When reading a book/watching a movie, do you like hearing spoilers? Or would you prefer to find out the events as you read/watch them on your own?
Definitely no spoilers. I like to find out...

Not necessarily you...

Over the past few years, I have noticed that to some students, listening is optional and the respect for adults in general has greatly diminished. Even when parents are contacted, things don't...

Complicated problem but...

It's still your home. The fact that the dogs you both have had were welcomed in the past probably complicates things, but it's different now because you have a new home, your dog and hers don't get...

I read The Vent board pretty regularly and occasionally respond to posts there. I also belong to several Facebook teacher groups including one specifically for people reaching out for help and...

Toxic administrators...

Good luck tomorrow. It is so hard to want to work hard for a person like that. I will be thinking of you and I hope everything goes well.

I worked for a principal like that. I worked with my...

No...

You certainly can forgive her, but that doesn't mean entering the same cycle of hurt that you were in. I would not be able to trust a "friend" like that after everything she did to you. If you do...

We are nurturers to others...

I think nurturing is part of most teachers' DNA. We don't want to offend or hurt the feelings of others, and might not want to appear selfish in our choices, when in reality, we should not have to...

Retirement is the BEST...

After a long 42 year career, I was more than ready to go out. I loved what I did, but the changes to the profession made the career I loved almost unrecognizable from when I started all those years...

Are you unionized?

You should have a right to safe working conditions (or as safe as possible). The fact that you are pregnant should make the administration overly protective of you. No one should expect to get hit on...

Very sorry...

Did the people who have these complaints come to you first before coming to the administrator? Do their concerns have any merit? Was this the first you knew of these complaints or did you know and...

Great job!

Check Kohls. My friend bought some inexpensive clothes there when she was losing weight. Congratulations on your loss.

Well-deserved!

I'm glad that you get to see your former families and students. It's so nice to be able to stay in touch. I no longer live in the state where i started my career and worked 12 years, but I am very...

Tough decision...

I would be willing to bet that it is all the associated work that is coming attached to teaching is draining you dry. I could have written a good deal of your post before I chose to retire. So much...

One of our principals, who later became the district's curriculum supervisor, got his doctorate at Columbia. He bought into Lucy hook, line and sinker for both reading and writing workshops. It...

I can stay up late watching TV or reading. I also love Sunday afternoons. I can drive to festivals and other events a few hours away and not worry about plans, dinner, laundry or grading. No stress...

Knee replacement

My teacher friend, in her early 70's, had her knee replaced July 31st. She is back to driving, and will be joining our retired teachers group for our monthly lunch next week. As far as I know, she...

Sometimes, the right thing is the unselfish thing. Never easy, but may your memories of your dog and the love she gave you bring you some comfort on this sad day.

So glad your former student...

Your grandson sounds like a bright young man. So glad he is having a better year this year. The impact of a teacher who is a good fit for a student is priceless. Dogs are always interesting. My dog...

Lots of people move on to different career paths for a variety of reasons. My sixth grade teacher became a lawyer and my middle school English teacher became a journalist. They were definitely not...
