Classroom materials question

Has anyone had any success selling classroom materials (books, manipulatives, games, etc.)? I am going to be teaching special education next year and really need to pare down my general education...

I would go with DH's thoughts since it's his coworker. If I were choosing for one of my coworkers I'd want to have final say since I am the one who has to work with him/her. Either way, it's a nice...

Yes

I've been teaching full time for 26 years. I subbed for 5 years in a district full of nepotism. (I now work in another state alongside MANY people from my previous state/area). I've always gotten...

Thank you!

You all have made me feel okay about this. I have mixed feelings about doing gifts at school. It's not really our job. I have never gotten a "thank you." I never considered how uncomfortable it...

I am the worst

I am hating myself right now. I forgot to do a Mother's Day project with my 2nd graders. My own mother has been having health issues and I've been in and out of the state to be with her. I've been...

I agree with getting an MRI. My sister had bad knee pain. The doctor told her the x-ray showed a normal amount of arthritis and that was likely the cause of her pain. She went to the chiropractor...

Creative ways to hang a word wall?

Does anyone have a creative way to hang a word wall? I have mine on cabinets but not all of the letters fit and I need it to be more uniform. Has anyone seen or done a word wall that is creative...

I suppose it's the way he says it. I've heard people do that before and it didn't bother me. This guy has a pretty obvious big ego and the way he acts is flirty and icky.

I agree with Greyhound Girl. "Reply all" used the way your colleague does it is irritating as H***. If your admin is okay with that, shame on them. I would ask her why she CC's them. I'd do that...

Thanks for the replies. I think I've just met the first "red flag" person at my new school. He's a 4th year teacher who refers to himself in the third person. He's a coworker, not a superior, who...

Opinions please

In a primary classroom, what does good classroom management look like to you? What does bad classroom management look like? What things are important to you?

You are important. Remember that. You have gifts to share that no one else has. You've got this. Keep breathing and taking things a day at a time. Sometimes a moment at a time is good enough.

I pray this is not the case. If the pastor saw this, he/she should be talking to law enforcement. If not, I question what he/she actually saw.

Totally agree with PP. Time to lay low and take care of yourself. We are in weird and stressful times. We can't do some projects we've always done and some of it could be due to safety measures. ...

Your team reminds me of my old team. They were a collective pain in the butt. It takes a lot of nerve to complain, not contribute and then ask you for your work. Good for you for saying no. ...
