Jobs now

I would sit out the year. Period.

That being said, tons of positions will open up as teachers learn more about reopening plans. In our district, where i actually know very few people, several...

I made masks all spring. I have a wardrobe of them. I always have various sizes in my car in case I see someone who needs one. I sent hundreds onto the nearby reservation, to elder homes, to my...

Here too

Our district wants to do this too, but also record the livestream for download, for kids without internet. As far as I'm concerned, it makes teaching impossible.

What happens when there's an...

If you care

The clue is that she made it about caring about students instead of bringing teacher safety into the conversation at all. I'm tired of not even being in the equation.

Do you really want to be teaching in the middle of all this? Ummm... the good news is that there should be a lot of last minute openings. Teacher retirement boards are being flooded with calls.

Then again...

We were FORBIDDEN to have any contact with students--my district's idea of equity, since not all kids are able to reach us. We sent paper packets--not to exceed 2 pages including readings, examples,...

During the school year bc (before corona), i worked with homebound students. The minimum billable time is half an hour, so I was told to wait that long and then bill (the district) for it. If you're...

"Professional "

Yup. Any time they presume to define the word "professional " for you, you're getting talked down to, scolded, screwed, or some combination of those...

Dog and pony show

They seem to like gimmicky stuff. The kind you pull out for evaluations. And self contained, meaning you can finish the whole thing in x amount of time. Has all the steps, has an activity that you...

Not such a problem

Im a high school teacher in one of the poorest and most remote areas in the continental us, and while your mileage may vary, 95% of my students have smart phones. They don't all have reception at...

God, I want that so much! Whenever they ask for teacher input--which is rarely-- I float it out there.
Thing is, they're afraid of not having us in case they need us. Our district contracts this...

Thank you. My god, around here, we're not even part of the conversation. My question, though, is how delaying the school year affects contracts and pay. Do teachers go on unemployment until school...

Daaaang! This is absolutely the sanest thing i've seen anywhere. I do worry that parents may take advantage of the loopholes, thereby crowding schools beyond the point where distancing can really...

Just yes! Oh, and the new football field our district is STILL bragging about putting in? Replacing all those brand new computers? Yeah, that too. I wouldn't mind losing that extra layer of overpaid...

Oh, man...

I have to stay in our state retirement system for another year and a half, but I damned sure don't have to stay in the district if they don't require and enforce masks. I have a feeling they won't. I...
