My last official day was Jan. 1, although my final day of work was just prior to winter break. It worked out fine. I gave two months notice so my principal would have adequate time to find a...

Looking forward to:
Eating solid food again. I'm on a clear liquid diet because it is the day before my colonoscopy.

Not looking forward to:
Doing my colonoscopy prep tonight.

I completely understand. I'm ready for the holiday season to be over too. My mother was the only person in my family I was close to, and she has been gone for 14 years. My siblings and their families...

Lazy Lake

The original poster is not placed in the new teacher's classroom. She has picked up this information from her volunteer duty in the teachers' workroom.

If she decides to accept the help that is offered to her, that's great. If not, it is her situation and not...

what to Do

When people say not to get them anything, I don't give them a gift. I don't understand why people feel the need to do so.

If you are determined to give them something, a framed photo of your...

Not Fun

Having no water is annoying. Our kitchen faucet is malfunctioning, and only a little stream of water comes out. The dishwasher isn't working either. A plumber is coming Monday, but having limited...

Ugh

I would not continue working in an environment where I am in physical danger. Perhaps you could talk with the union attorney to see what your options are. I'm sorry you're dealing with this.

Sorry

He doesn't sound high functioning to me at all. He should not be in a regular classroom setting with that kind of behavior.

I would contact your union for guidance.
