Our district informed us last week that we are returning back in August to a "pre-covid" work schedule. We have been told that if we have any symptoms or even spike a fever above 100 degrees that we...

I feel relieved now

Hi Jazzer!

Testyteach,

I can relate to you. I am single without children and I feel like I'm wasting time sitting in the house all day. I do teach as an adjunct professor in the evenings but I'm mostly...

The best thing that job ever did for us was buy each room...

SportingKC- I don't want to teach pre-k at all. I did it for over 7 years until I earned my degrees. I taught 1st grade for 4 years and that is the lowest grade I will ever teach again.

SportingKC- thank you...I enjoy teaching in and of itself when protocols are being followed. The problems that I have had come from lack of admin support and unethical practices.

I don't understand why the principal had to mention anything about certification in the first place. It's irrelevant to the situation. The problem is that you're being shorted PE time. You have...

It's Hit or Miss
