1. If you could work any time of day, what would you choose for your work hours?

6 am-1 pm
2. Using only one word, describe this past week.

Disheartening. Our boss is being pressured from the...

Do a YouTube search for Hyperdocs. It a nutshell, they allow you to electronically bundle your lessons in one place. The students can work at their own pace, so long as it's done by the due date. ...

revisit the law

Of course it won't help us now. But all these laws/rules about IEP and eval timelines are just plain ridiculous during a pandemic. We are not talking about snow days or not enough certified staff. ...

IEP meetings

In my district, the only way we'd have that meeting if it was due that day. And with no one being there, I'm doubting we'd hold it all.

Just do what you can do. Of course you will still work very hard and there will be some stress. But it shouldn't be to the degree that it makes you want to cry. We do all of this work and collect...

So hard..

Our district has a high turn-over rate due to this very problem. I can't even imagine being a new teacher and all that comes with being new, PLUS dealing with all of the OTHER demands. It's just too...

data collection days

I'm not doing resource, but I know resource teachers. One of them manages data by having specific days where the students are primarily working on their IEP goals. This doesn't mean she doesn't...

had one of those

She sounds nuts and inexperienced. Or perhaps a tad anal mixed with control freak. Why on Earth would someone want to heap on tasks that are not necessary in a job that's already hard enough! Good...

Don't have anything to offer, but I'm watching this thread. My coworkers need new material. It seems that for the severest students, they end up making their own materials based on standards. Of...

bougie house

You'd definitely need staff just to run the house. And I can't imagine heating or cooling that house. But like someone said, if you can afford that house, you can afford the upkeep.

1:1 legal?

I don't like this situation. If they are shady people, and they sound that way, not if, but WHEN something happens, they could say, why didn't you tell anyone that you did not have enough staff. ...

The remarks also remind me of the kindergarten teacher who approached me and asked how many children did I have, and when I told her none, she replied , “Well, You will never be a good teacher.” That...

Inadequate and depressed

I think so long as your kids are learning and you enjoy teaching, ignore the comments. Sometimes people don't mean anything, just saying things that likely should just remain thoughts or at least,...

Early in my career, I know there were times would I would easily spend close to 700 if not more! I'd say of that 700, about 100 is what I call frilly stuff. And maybe another 100-200 on things that...

Another introvert with social anxiety as well. What irritates me is the perception that we are not team players because we don't care for all of the waste of time games. Not just it's a waste of...

Progress Monitoring

Instead of using Google Docs, try Google Sheets or Google Forms. YouTube progress monitoring using Google and you should get some great tutorials.

Leave teaching?

Only if I could find a career that allowed me to do something similar or closely related to the educational field. I'd love to work for one of the publishing companies. But in all honesty, I think...

Saturday Survey

what teabreak said..

Perfect reply. I'd stop doing their job. I feel for you because I have a hunch that admin already knows about their behavior but doesn't want to deal with them. Continue to set a positive and...

help your child

Sounds like you are in a small school district or work for a bunch of idiotic non-caring people. Either way, I can't believe what I just read. Of course you are supposed to write good IEPs for all...

shame on them

I know this post is somewhat old, but I had to chime in. Your admin should be ashamed of themselves! I don't care if you were a first year teacher. What happens to treating people in a humane...

food combos

I love to mix different kinds of cereal together. In fact, just the other day I had Raisin Bran and Frosted Flakes. It's even better if it sits for a bit and gets semi-soggy. Sounds gross, but...

Pensions and moving out of state

I did a IRA rollover. It took me awhile to do it because I did not want to mess anything up, but in the meantime, I just left it in my old pension. I made sure I chose the option where I did not get...

Thanks for all of the replies. At work I feel that sometimes I have a certain skill set, but I don't have the personality for the job. For the most part it does not upset me as I tend not to want...

Introverted educators

I have been an introvert with situational anxiety for pretty much my entire life. I like people. I like being with people. But sometimes, given the preference, I'd rather be at home online,...
