Ask them politely to demonstrate :)

I had some moron trying to tell me to do something that did not work ( I'd tried it.) She came to demonstrate and surprise! It not only did not work for her, the kids were awful! Really awful! lol...

Just wait!

Once PBIS gets thrown out, you'll get trauma informed schools!
I think, but could be wrong....that PBIS has been "misused " by a lot of districts.
I never really studied it or went along w/it, but...

Reading your first post made me want to

knock your P upside the head. I hope the police got involved. I am glad to see you have talked to the union and are taking their advice.
You should not have to tolerate that and neither should the...

Red flag for me almost instantly...

Maybe it just comes from what I have seen in my own experiences working as a counselor, knowing how most Moms feel about their kids, and life. I have never known a woman to leave her kids behind when...

I'd guess about 5 yrs ago...

Our district took the same route. It is ridiculous! The article talked about no healthy child should be excluded...……….and that was it for me. WE have even had kids with staph infections and another...

Admin puts them up to it.....

I did the coach job a long time ago. I had been told it was a job to help teachers and I was new to the area. Come to find out, they wanted spies, enforcers, and reporters which is the opposite of...

I am sorry you are dealing w/ that

kind of crap! I dealt w/ it more when I was younger. Plus, I moved. Now parents have the decency to just talk behind your back. :D
At least then, you have no need to respond!
I have heard of...

I am not a fan

of Dojo either. To me, it wastes time and the smartboard.

I think we are 1 of the few places

with more teachers without teaching jobs. There are not enough kids in the area. A few people are waiting for me to die or retire...

Good for you on being ready to roll!

It is sad we can't trust our coworkers.
That is great your P has done an about face though.
I am wondering if he hasn't already figured her out.
Didn't she start some crap the end of last yr...

and yeah! ( like no duh!)

We have title, interventionists, sped teachers and aides w/ nothing better to do than gossip while the teachers have classes to teach. Many have not seen kids for 2 weeks.

Your P is an A__ ___!

The word yell is very subjective.
I'd give the sub the benefit of the doubt.
Every1 forgets something sometimes.
You're even more likely to forget when tired or sick.
I bet your A__ P forgets...

I find it so sad seriously

that so many teachers have to take anxiety and depression meds to be able to do their jobs! It really makes me mad. Why do we ( as teachers) allow people to put us under so much pressure?

Nope! I would not allow that even in elem.

When you have kids like that, you need to have what I call brainwork. It needs to be done in written form.
I know 40% of the kids will never get to it. Most will start it. Expect that 1 to finish...

When I moved states, I went

from a high performing and functioning school, to one of the worst schools in the best district in the state. So, I can relate. Stupid parents- Try not to let them get to you. Many of them had a hard...

Way too extreme to me...

I never even heard of a bubble mouth. Assigned order is ridiculous too. My kids can be pulled anytime by a number of pple. ( OT, PT, Speech, Sped, Title) There goes that system out the window.

I let mine expire 1x

I never thought life would bring me back to that state. It took extra classes and exams to get recertified. It took over a yr too because DEpt of ED is so hard to reach here too. It looks like you...
