Our Spring Break is next week. New York’s governor has signed an executive order saying teachers have to provide work over Spring Break with no expectation that we will be compensated.

If you’re an ELA teacher, grades 5-8, and are currently using Google Classroom- interested in connecting with you as I navigate this new approach! Looking to see how you seek up your classroom!

I am currently a student teacher and many of my classmates in my cohort have accepted jobs within districts I have also applied to as well. I am starting to feel stressed. Any advice?

Do you believe remote teaching may continue into the fall? Our schools are closed until May 1st. However, it may continue to get pushed back. Our numbers here are growing exponentially!

Have any of you written a letter to your students or shared a journal entry with your students about how you are feeling during this time? It seems silly now, but what we have to say will be so interesting in 50 years from now....

What’s the situation with doing read-aloud videos on my YouTube channel for my kids? I’ve heard there would be copyright issues but I’ve already seen so many other read alouds on YouTube...

Is anyone else’s calTPA or edTPA plans kind of messy now? I was planning on recording and submitting the first two weeks we closed and then we closed. I know edTPA has alternatives but not calTPA yet!

For the love of Mike, can someone please get through to the kids that saying “I’m confused” or “I don’t get it” is a cop out and helps NO ONE?! I’m losing my patience and my mind here! So lazy!!

Anyone else on the job hunt right now? It’s such a strange time to be applying. I had a great phone interview over a week ago and I’m going -crazy- waiting to hear back. Any words of wisdom/advice?

What % of your students are regularly participating in online learning? I'd say 25-30 for me.

I keep hearing different things about reading books aloud- either on a video or live on Zoom. I've heard it's a violation of copyrights, but I also heard some authors are giving their permission and that it's ok as long as it's not accessible to people outside the class. So which is right?

Are you finding that you can teach the same curriculum you teach at school or did you have to toss it to find something more appropriate? I'm supposed to teach a Shakespeare play, but I can't see some of my struggling students reading it on their own.

Parent just complained about 17 emails they are getting daily, with multiple assignments per teacher. I post work 1x/week, might post messages other days. Child has done NO work yet. Thoughts?

So who else had a communication platform crash today? I know Seesaw and Class Dojo went down around 11 AM EDT. Do you think it will happen everyday?

Does anyone else feel guilty for not replying to inquiries from students in the evening hours?
