While I have seen some of my children's teachers make some expensive or excessive requests for classroom supplies (such as supplies for maintaining a classroom pet or specific binders that cast $7-10...

Thank you!!!

I've been teaching a lot of years and can honestly say I've never seen a class quite like the one I have now. You all are writing as though you are living in my class! Between all the impulsivity,...

I needed work

I was one of those moms who not only needed to work (financially), but wanted to work. I was blessed to have a wonderful sitter who helped me raise all three of my kids - but for my sanity and to be...

Have to chime in!

I was the only teacher, when our boards were being installed, who knew enough to ask that cable/dvd/vcr be hooked up. Teachers after me were lucky enough to have this done - now the teachers before...

Thanks for sharing!

I will be transitioning to K-8 technology after my final year in 3rd grade next year. In my previous life at my school I was the K-5 tech teacher (I've been back in the classroom for 6 years). I'm...

To the best of my knowledge you can not take a photo from another slideshow. You can grab photos from other albums to create a new album (which are linked to all of your photos). If you see a...

I don't get it!

I can not possibly understand how anyone outside of the classroom teacher can mandate/dictate 90 uninterrupted minutes of reading. What happens to the kid who can't manage attention, or needs...

Love it!!!

I have a little one... I keep my personal stuff - lunch, soda in it - but most important, I keep a stash of ice packs in the "freezer" section - it cuts WAY down on kids having phantom bumps and...

I have to remind my kids daily that they actually have to THINK to come up with answers, write paragraphs, research, etc. They want the quick answer or get frustrated. I still resort to the "ask 3...
