Illinois Teachers

A bowl for Illinois state teachers to discuss work-life inside and outside the classroom.

If a teacher with an ESL endorsement becomes bilingual, are they certified to teach in a bilingual classroom? Or is a degree in bilingual education also necessary on top of the language degree?

What are you doing about students who don’t finish the work you’re assigning? ISBE is telling us the grades can’t go against a students grade, but I assigned work that will help learning continue.

Has anyone heard about what AP is going to do? I teach AP research and I really want kids to be rewarded for their hard work!

Illinois schools closed effective Tuesday. Anyone else skipping the TP and stocking up at the liquor store?

Bed bugs - we’ve got them at our school. They keep spraying but every couple weeks we see them. I believe there is a family that has them but financially can not afford to spray their apartment.

Has anyone gone back to school to get their Master's in educational leadership? If so, what schools would you recommend?

What is your child-reading language in your contract? Are you allowed to use your sick days (as a woman having the child) while you are off of work?

Solidarity with our fellow teachers in Chicago. What would you like to see in this next contract to help you give your students the quality education they deserve?

I'm confused as to how to become "highly qualified" in Illinois. I've seen that it is on ELIS that you can add it but then it asks if I'm certified by HOUSS. Does anybody know what that entails?

I have been extremely stressed out over students not listening. They do not follow the simplest of directions. In a class of 21 only about 4 are on task most times. Any advice would be nice!
