Maybe hope for the future

Your description sounds a lot like the Ready Math program, which I am teaching for the first time after years away from teaching math at all. What a change! I also hate it and struggle with it. I...

Spice Girls

Last year, my coworkers and I were the Spice Girls. We wore aprons with a picture of a spice (I was cinnamon). I can't say most of the kids related, but we amused ourselves.

Fair Use images

If a student is writing a report or article for a class and wants to use a public image from the web, does that always fall under Fair Use? I always require a citation for images used, but sometimes...

I use Alexandria

Don't know what it cost at start up. For maintenance, I pay $499 annually, but we have a small library (@6000 books). I like it and found it very easy and intuitive to learn. I get annoyed when they...

I like it

This has been done in my school for at least 20 years, when I first started. I was a classroom teacher until 2 years ago when I moved into the media specialist position. As a classroom teacher I...

leave the chairs upright?

Do you have to turn the chairs upside down, or can the 4 legs fit on the desk? Our Kdg class has the chair pockets and they just stand the chairs upright on their tables.

using them

We've always used the state standards, with additional standards added that reflect religious values. We'll use the CCS, and probably add more to it.

Not a fan anymore

When I was teaching in a classroom, I liked AR for its ease of maintenance and data collection, but had to work really hard to motivate kids because they would only read for rewards. As the school...

teaching kindergarteners about information

One of my standards is to teach K to identify what information is and to know it can come in a variety of forms (words, numbers, pictures, sounds). I don't really understand what that means, and I...

I'm trying to help 8th graders learn to craft a research paper. They are researching a person and need to show how he/she has made a contribution to society. I want them to have an introduction with...

What a sad state of things. I have to say I've led a pretty comfortable, not rich, life so far. I'm about to turn 40, and I'm starting to get scared for my future! My Catholic school salary is...

contracts are binding!

If you signed a contract for a year's salary, and you fulfilled your end, don't they have to, by law, fulfill theirs? I'd definitely check with a lawyer!

There is nothing in our handbook, but our principal (and pastor!) are often on theirs, and I infer from comments that we are not only allowed, but expected to have ours at school. In fact, we have...
