Michigan Teachers

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

Can any East Lansing teachers chime in on the handwritten notes and bonuses being reported? Would love your perspective which may or may not be different than newspaper article.

Wanting to get out of the public school sector but struggling with where to start. I am a published writer so I was thinking freelance writing and private tutoring. Has anyone done this?

My school in Van Buren County has a middle school science position open. The teacher who retired from that position is the long term sub. She should be traveling instead! Reply here for details.

Last year, I had a violent student. Loved him, but burnt me out. This year, so much better. Today, witnessed a violent student in our K class injure 2 students. I feel like I took two steps back....

Just out of curiosity, what does your beginning of the year PD look like? We’ve had all the usual safety training. This year we’re spending half a day volunteering with community partners
