About to host our online end of year celebration for our leaving 6th graders. Then a drive thru promotion next week. This is crazy.

Teachers do you love your breaks during specials!? We are trying a new schedule next year. I’d love for you too share your thoughts on special schedules.

What do you do when a parent berates you in front of their child but when given the option to move their child to another classroom, refuses? I have tried to be as forceful as possible when asking to have the child removed from my room. Parents refuse saying she’s having a great year, but then continue to lie and threaten to call the district to report me for being vindictive. I have filed a civility complaint with admin and she‘s banned from emailing me directly but complains to admin instead.

What supplemental resources do you recommend for a math curriculum? (We currently use GoMath) It’s fine but looking to supplement!

I just got notice that I’m not being renewed. This is my 3rd school in 3 years and I improved so much as a teacher. I’m devastated. How am I going to find a job in this pandemic and my husband is diabetic and depends on my insurance. What am I going to do? I just want to quit teaching and give up

Can anyone share their opinion on using SeeSaw as a platform? Currently, our K-2 teachers are being told that we would be transitioning to SeeSaw in September.

I just saw a live stream post of one of my moms, who said they had no access to the internet, demonstrate the cardiovascular benefits of 45 minutes of twerking.

We finally have 1:1 tech, a para per teacher and smaller classes. What’s the problem again?

I'm not sure about any of you but if the CDC thinks we can be successful in desks 6ft apart with masks on they are truly OUT OF THEIR MINDS and I will be doing something else until it changes!
