It's good to recognize....

It's good to recognize when you're not in a good place mentally. I think some people don't see when they need to stop and take care of themselves. I could have written your post. We just received...

My strategy too...

I definately don't plan on doing anything noteworthy this year. Stick to the lesson. Keep it simple. Follow safety protocol. Minimize my stress. Survive. I feel like this makes me a bad...

I was doing a good job of avoiding the drama lately, but then my dad stopped by to visit and wanted to talk about something my husband posted on Facebook. I don't know if I'm more annoyed with my...

Maybe call not email?

I suggest calling so you can get a response on how to come to your room, return laptop, etc. My principal admitted in a faculty zoom that he can't get through all his emails right now because there...

Depends on school

Our retiring teachers are not being replaced. Positions eliminated. Larger classes and more preps for me next year. Lucky I have a job.

Thank you to those who replied to my post. It just all overwhelmed me yesterday. I've got all the previous teacher's plans, worksheets, etc. I'm sure I'll be fine, but I so dislike having no extra...

My 6th - 10th years of teaching were the worst because my principal blamed me for classmanagment problems that I went to him for help with....without really helping me. He changed my teaching...

Home phones

We're getting mixed signals about when we should or shouldn't be calling. I've documented all the e-mails and Google classroom communication. B.C. (before coronavirus) I never would have called...

Hello FLteacESE!

You're right, we know our students. I probably went overboard on the advice to you. It upset me that contacting the parent doesn't give better results, but I'm familiar with that too. I think of...

I teach 9th grade....and I understand what you're up against. This would drive me crazy if everything were normal with school right now. However, I read this and think how sad it is that his parent...

Is anyone else feeling this way?

I feel like I'm the only teacher just going through the motions at this point. I feel like a failure because i don't think my students are even looking at what I send now, mostly due to how our...
