Shelter in Place

From what I've heard, grocery stores and essential stores are still open but residents are supposed to stay in homes. I wonder how they're going to enforce that.

One of my coworkers

is a man teaching Kindergarten. He's a good teacher and definitely suited for the younger grades. The belief that men can't deal with young children is so outdated. It used to be considered odd for...

The charter I worked at had 25 kids grades K-5 and 30 grades 5-8. I taught kindergarten and it sucked. Not only that, but kindergarten had only one aide to share with 4 classrooms. Plus the aide did...
