I assess very often with ESGI. If students grasp a skill, we move on. I meet in small groups with students who need support. You have to differentiate instruction in math just a much as you do...

Journeys teacher

Hi,
I know exactly what you mean. The amount of content to be covered is overwhelming! I arrived at a happy medium by the end of the year, and this is pretty much what it looked like. We have 130...

Skeptical about that k-1 private job

I am a public education supporter, but aside from that, the job that promises a full salary with only one k or one 1st student sounds a bit vague. The full salary job 25 minutes away would be...
