Lazy Lake

The original poster is not placed in the new teacher's classroom. She has picked up this information from her volunteer duty in the teachers' workroom.

Teacher

You are right that this isn't your problem. Not your circus . . . not your monkeys.

If she decides to accept the help that is offered to her, that's great. If not, it is her situation and not...

what to Do

When people say not to get them anything, I don't give them a gift. I don't understand why people feel the need to do so.

If you are determined to give them something, a framed photo of your...

MLMs

I'm not a fan of multi level marketing companies, so I don't have any advice.

Not Fun

Having no water is annoying. Our kitchen faucet is malfunctioning, and only a little stream of water comes out. The dishwasher isn't working either. A plumber is coming Monday, but having limited...

He sounds awful. I'm sorry you have to deal with his nonsense. I hope he is out of there before too long.

Ugh

I would not continue working in an environment where I am in physical danger. Perhaps you could talk with the union attorney to see what your options are. I'm sorry you're dealing with this.

Leaving Your School

It sounds like a good decision to leave your school. Hopefully things go better than you anticipate after you notify your principal. I would do it by email after you have given written notification...

Sorry

He doesn't sound high functioning to me at all. He should not be in a regular classroom setting with that kind of behavior.

I would contact your union for guidance.

What to Do

The liens on your house and the need to purchase a new home make it seem that retirement is not feasible for you right now. You and your husband should see a fee based financial planner who can help...

No Thank You

I hide people who sell things on FB. I don't want to see endless sales pitches from representatives of MLM companies.

It is up to the specials teachers to deal with the behavior of your class. This is not your problem.

What to Do

I would tell him that you are really busy right now and don't have time to engage in daily texting and phone calls. Say that you will get in touch when things calm down a bit.

No Thank You

I would not tolerate being physically attacked by students. If the school can't provide a safe environment for me to teach, I would file a police report.

DD and BF are acting entitled and rude. They are fortunate to be staying with you and probably paying no rent or other house expenses. It is your garage, and you should park there.

This Time of Year

I'm happy not to be teaching this time of year. Kids were usually hyper in December, and I was more than ready for winter break. By the time it came I was usually exhausted.

Retirement is the best.

You are under no obligation to have people stay with you. The friends who live 2 hours away can drive down to see you for the day or book a nearby hotel.
