I am teaching 3-digit subtraction with regrouping and this year my students are having more difficulty than they usually do. Any ideas?

So the police were called to my school yesterday to escort one of my former students off campus and it left me traumatized. I cried in the bathroom for 10 minutes. The criminalization of kids is wrong

How do you handle bathroom breaks? Do you just let kids go whenever they need to, or do you use passes?

Has anybody had experience with job sharing? Would you share your thoughts the positive the negative.

What do you do when you have a student whose mouth moves faster than their brain? She really does understand the content, she just needs to slow down. (She’s in kindergarten)

I want to use peer feedback to help students create better paragraphs. I am worried the students will be too harsh or cruel with each other.

How do you handle when a third of your class is unmotivated and won't complete work? I teach third grade.

How do I “professionally” tell my principal that she’s mean and I don’t like the way she talks to people? Or should I just email her superintendent?

Sped Co-teachers... ever been asked if you were there to spy on the teacher you are suppose to work on?? I almost wanted to say If I was a spy you would have been out of a job weeks ago.

What are some of your favorite ways to teach early math using student interests? I put a question on the board and students mark likes/dislikes with a sticky note to create a bar graph. They love it!
