Sorry, I don't mean to sound disgruntled.
I will list any training/PD's we did have.
I am proud of my year there. I don't think I was a bad teacher at all. It's just the way it worked out.

resume

I was let go. It came as a shock. I was told that it was not a good fit. I was told this on the Friday of the last full week of school, 20 minutes before dismissal. There was no time to really...

Bad Charter

I was at a bad charter, it would seem! No subs, so the kids are split up. No prep time unless you come in early or stay late. If you come in early, you may end up being asked to monitor the yard...

No prep time

Is it common not to have any real prep or collaboration time? Any prep time is before school. The earlier we come in, the more time we can prep. Do teachers usually get prep time during the day? We...

timed math

I bought a timed math book. Each page/level has 35 problems. I kept adjusting the time until I found a time that most students could complete the page - 2 minutes and 35 seconds. That was around the...

I have done that with the exception of having him slapping his own thigh, or something else physical to do instead. Maybe that will help. Thanks!

Impulsive, physical student

I have a boy in my class who is impulsive. He's a physical kid- kinesthetic and excitable. He is quite tall for his age, so he's bigger than the other boys in the class. He tends to punch the...

Teachers had to recommend students for the testing. I think that if a parent REALLY wanted their child tested, that would have been done. But no parent said anything to me about wanting their child...

I'm sorry, but your child actually isn't gifted.

At the beginning of the year, I had a few parents tell me that their child is gifted. Turns out that wasn't the case. Now that spring conferences are coming soon, I think I may have some of those...

I certainly don't want more work for myself! Maybe I could choose a couple at random and give tickets to those kids if they did their corrections.
