I forgot how to make the box, but Kinder

Unprofessinal to the max

I am the teacher who says not to
and never tells on other teachers.
In many years of teaching, I have had to "defend myself 2x from teachers who were liars. (After they told lies about me.) That...

I let mine expire 1x

I never thought life would bring me back to that state. It took extra classes and exams to get recertified. It took over a yr too because DEpt of ED is so hard to reach here too. It looks like you...

Your stories never cease to amaze me. I remember when you wrote about the parents who wanted you to create leadership opportunities for their kid.
I wonder how many of your parents have paid bribes...

Yes, I am pretty sure it was a scam....

Even if it was not, the kid lied to me. He said, they had gone to pay for their groceries and were 5.00 short. I did not see a cart or groceries anywhere. If that had been the case, I might have told...

I am sorry!

I know the more kids, the less space, and more potential problems.
Since it seems to be so close to the norm, I'd probably force myself to "suck it up" too! Maybe 5 of them will be rocket...

That is a good attitude because it can be

done. The overhead was like gold to me before Smartboards. That is a bummer you did not get 1 because they make it a lot easier than the whiteboard, but having it on your resume will be priceless!...

Does your state have a limit

for student/pupil ratios? I think I might make a fuss and get in I have had 34 in my room many yrs ago.
K has its unique set of challenges and 30 is way too many. It might help to go...

I feel for you!

That day is coming for me too soon. It helps a bit to make plans to go out to dinner afterwards w/ a friend to debrief and laugh at the stupidity of what we just sat through. Not a just...

I stand in agreement w/ Gromit and the

other posters. The only different thought I had was there are some parents who nitpick yr after yr. Our P would probably let that parent be anonymous because he doesn't want to hear, " That woman...

I'm sorry, but I have never heard of it.

We are getting new types of assessments too this yr and I do not even have a clue of the names yet. It is a bummer when you get to that expert ( or even proficient level) in anything and it...

Don't let the older teachers see you sweat! :

Joking....kind of! We have some who would help and others who would laugh in a mean way.
When I 1st started, we had zero tech.
We had chalkboards. Be thankful for your white board. :)

I have had personal and student loans.

I am not really sure what you are asking. Do you already have all of the classwork out of the way and just need the loan for 4 months?
I'd advise against going into massive debt, but if you only...

That is unusual.

It might help to see a dr.
The only things I can think of don't fit. I've had UTI's, that did not burn, but were just so annoying w/ that "have to pee" feeling and nothing comes out, but that does...

I haven't, but am curious too..

I'd have to drive 5 hours to get to a BK which makes it an impossible burger for me.
I never have liked BK either. When we were young and poor, we lived next to 1. If you would say, "The Whooper...

Most memorable:

Ozzy Osborne - I lost my hearing for at least 2 wks because we were so close to the stage/speakers
Boston- Back in the days before assigned seating...we made our way upfront too
America- You got a...

I use the microphone for text and sometimes make the mistake of saying whoops. :)

That looks like it is too sad

for me to see with school fast approaching.
It is an awesome idea though especially if the grandmother never knew she had stage 4 and no1 planned on telling her.
Probably the grandma would see the...

That has happened to me before too!

I always know I have gained weight when it happens because that is the 1st place on my body that gains.
If I keep it up, next it is harder to snap/zip pants. :)

4. Seafood ( probably scallops)

Yes, I taught it. They were just fiddling around, not paying attention, and refused...

OK I am feeling really guilty

It is past dinner time and I have not accomplished anything today. I haven't even eaten anything. ( I am on my 3rd cup of coffee.) I wish I had made chocolate chip cookies.
Congrats on finally...
