Well, co-teaching isn't for me either. I had to co-teach for a while. I got on with my colleague ok but didn't like needing to constantly compromise. I was the newer, younger teacher so even though...

It wouldn't bother me honestly. Unless of course he was reading it so often that the actual work of running a school was being neglected. I rarely read for pleasure at school but I have on occasion...

That's what I did too when I had a class like Miss Agnes is describing. It worked really well!

For my kinders I set up a 'hydration station' with cups and a water jug on a table at the back of my room. This way they get pouring practice. Yes they do spill sometimes LOL But I keep a rag there...

tricky class

I hear you! The year before last I had 29 kinders and soooo many behavior issues. I loved them but they were completely exhausting and it took a toll on my mental health for sure.

Last year I had...
