Cleaners - what do you think?

I know many of us are still uncertain what school will even look like this upcoming school year, but I had a curious thought about cleaning supplies. We normally add Kleenex, hand sanitizer, and...

Latch Key Generation

I am from the original “latch key” generation. It is a real shame that most households do not have a parent at home or that families can no longer survive on one income. My mom went back to work in...

Similar in AZ

Our numbers in AZ have really skyrocketed the last two weeks. It has already been decided by the governor that we cannot do “in person” school until after August 17th and it will be evaluated at that...

No REAL union in AZ

This is a right to work state so our union (if you want to call it that) is more like an organization and not what most of you consider a union.

For those that don't know, PBL stands for project...

Thanks for the support!

I should have added that they do stuff like this all the time, but this one is the worst incident. We have not had a reading series for almost 7 years! I teach in an elementary school in the largest...

Who does this?

Plagiarism & Honor Society

I saw the other vent on "cheating & plagerism" and I didn't want to hijack their post.

We were told not to be seen outside of our homes between 7:30am and 3:30pm because it sends the ďwrongĒ message to parents. Iím sorry, but I canít go for a walk to my mailbox because Iím suppose to...

First off, I look forward to reading your posts. You should write a book! Call it "The View from the Guidance Counselor's Office"!

I would like to know how we are to keep social distancing with kids when we do go back to school...even after all of this is over. I mean, I've got 34 in my room and there is no room to spread out....

About state testing

Just to add an additional two-cents here, we survived without state testing for many, many years and I'm sure we will survive a year without testing as well. The only people worried are the obsessed...

It seems to be a ďthingĒ that a lot of teachers complain about. I donít know if itís a fear of being sued or bad press or what.

Yep

This is how my school district is. They frown if we are at our desk at all. They view seat work as "busy work" and not allowed. They fill our 30 minute prep time is enough time to grade, but that...
