Principals can come and go quickly

especially in a charter school. He may not be your problem for long. (OTOH, I know of a P who is very stressful to work for, and misogynistic in the bargain. He's been at the same school for like...

What a beautiful dog!

Makes me want to drop down to my knees and kiss his handsome face.

LOL is this a naughty dog? Is that why you don't believe them?

I agree with Lottalove

I haven't gotten a divorce in over 30 years, so maybe things have changed, but it used to be that the advice women got was DON'T move out. It makes it easier for him to get the house. Make him...

This is very concerning

You've received good advice. You really need an attorney. Once you file for legal separation, the sheriff will supervise him moving out if they have to. Then you need a restraining order.

Everyone who answered

Thank you so much. After reading what people posted here, I feel a little more like I have a plan, or an idea of where to turn.

I am having a sort of emergency session on the phone today with my...

The siblings who live in town are the two that were so abused and tormented by him. They don't ever have anything to do with him. Just talking about him triggers them. My sister has been in...

Fewer and less

Fewer people, less money!

Fewer options, less influence!

Fewer is for plurals; less is singular. It sounds awful to say, "There should be less people here." Can people not HEAR that that is...

This is heavy

Apologies in advance. Can you give me some advice?

My older brother (sibling #1) was very abusive to the four siblings under him, especially #s 4 and 5. He sexually abused #4 for years. In...

Alternating days is what I suggest

I taught everything in one 51 minute block for years. I did reading one day, writing the next. If they're often writing about what they're reading, then it ties together nicely. I did writer's...

Thanks everyone!

I'm going to try it. What I'm actually thinking I want to do is set up a youtube channel with language arts lessons for people homeschooling during the pandemic. I thought it would be good to have...

Hello. I am coming to the teachers on this board, hoping that someone can guide me toward a REALLY EASY tool to build a website--something for someone (me) who has no idea whatsoever how to do any...

This year especially

I think that if you plan too much, you might be sorry. Layoffs are coming in a lot of places. Some of you, maybe a lot of you, won't be teaching the grade in September that you thought you would be...

I taught eighth for the last 4 years

and I never used a seating chart. I had one group I taught that was magnet and extremely high-performing and they always sat wherever, although most people found a seat that they sat in all year.

I've taught both and I'll take middle

any day of the week. I went back to a 4/5 split a few years ago. I had student taught 5th 15 years earlier and really liked it, so I was excited.

I found that I really, really didn't like...

My petty vent

is people who have the right-of-way but insist on giving it to me! That's dangerous! And if we do hit each other, it's my ticket, so no thanks.

I see people do this at four-way stops a lot. ...

These are crazy times

and then if you're dealing with personal stuff on top of it, I imagine that it just can get to be too much.

Don't get too worried about your room. Can you send flowers to the coworker, perhaps,...

Holy moly, that's a lot of $

I read this on FB

I'm paraphrasing, but it was something like:

I feel the same!

I feel like it's a slam against annoyance, which I get, but why Karen? Is that because Karen is a boomer name and we're slamming boomers? You know how a name can date a person--doesn't always but...

Thank you

Thank you all so much. I will get on Southwest's site and book my flight. I appreciate all the help. I knew I could come here for help. The teachers on Proteacher are the best!

Thank you...

Airline reservations

Can someone tell me if you know of an airline that lets you change your reservation if you need to? I generally fly Southwest and I don't think you can change without a charge. My problem is that I...
