Try more local

I would look up the websites of districts/schools. Check out Facebook pages about schools in the local area. What's the relationship like between the school and the community?

Harassment charge?

I agree with OPs that documenting is essential. I had to do it once, and I kept a daily narrative journal that I took home with me each day. I did get some relief because of the documentation, and...

Class size

32 is a normal class size for 4-8 in my district. 6-8 has even gone as high as 47.

One thing about our current in-person, half AM, half PM, model is that behavior issues are WAY down in upper...

Second on nature

I would also suggest baby animals. My kids love them. (Well, not this year- no time with the hybrid schedule.)

I do wonder if the movies will work, though. My fifth graders seem to think that if...

Dreaming, too

My desk is full of paper stacks. I wouldn't have any space to put anything else. We are F2F with students- half in the AM, half in the PM. Anticipating going back full time after Spring Break. We...

We bought it.

There are some things that have special or different episodes. For us, it's nice to not have to record and then fast-forward through the commercials. We're also re-watching old stuff.

The "instant" expectation

I try to be good about setting boundaries, but I don't always succeed.

When I have a parent of a drowning kid finally respond, I'll admit I drop everything to try to keep them on the hook.

Yes, document- removal storage

I agree with OPs, but I would add one caveat. When you keep emails or written records, make sure it's not on district-owned devices. Use paper that you take home immediately, or use a flash drive...

Definitely yuck!

That sounds awful! Lucky for us, students are half in the AM, half in the PM. I have to open doors 15 minutes before class (I put them right to work.), and I eat alone in the classroom to try to...

I'm guessing by what you mentioned.

Frindle by Andrew Clements has always been successful with my colleague who teaches fourth.

No shame-

I have been and am now in that exact place with a student. I have fought tooth and nail to help that child, but there comes a point when all you can do is emotionally disengage. Keep doing what you...

Assume you've tried ignoring

I'm so sorry you're dealing with this in addition to the pandemic.

If you can't get away from it any other way, create an evidence trail. If she does this by email, save every one and move them...

hybrid or distance only

Our hybrid model looks different.

Half the class from 8:15- 11:00 AM, 13 students; the other half noon to 2:40 PM, 15 students. The size of the cohorts depends on the grade level. There are 13-16...

Can only make them so fast

letsgomets- You make a good point. Not only are the orders and distribution an issue, I wonder how fast they can actually make them.

It sounds like she's not doing a very good job.

I wonder if she resents you because you aren't a new teacher that she can "mold."

not in love

We got one, but we've had a bunch of problems. It's supposed to be wifi, but it doesn't connect because it's still only 2.4 GHz. (Didn't know until we got it.) It also doesn't do the regular pattern...

Focused on practice apps-"homework"

We've been hybrid for a while. We post an Independent Assignment Schedule weekly. I send it to students and their parents.

For us, it's every day. Each teacher's form looks a little different,...
