Don’t we deserve better than Mulgrew and UNITY who won’t defend the safety of the rank and file during this pandemic?

If you are a NYC-DOE teacher, and you live in NYC, I hope you will vote in this primary for the Mayoral election - to help you understand how the candidates feel about education issues I have created this chart- DO NOT LOOK AT THE LAST PAGE until you have decided which candidate aligns with your position on the issues. Put your candidate choice in comments.

Are you comfortable with returning to school? I hear rumors of a delayed start date.

Has anyone received any support from administration on setting up remote learning for PE? If so what are you doing?

Any school closed due to corona? Idk why NYC won't close public schools when public universities have closed?

Does anyone who uses TC curriculum for reading have suggestions on ways to collect informal data/notes to check the kids meet the objective?

Special ed law question... I’m being told that an ICT class doesn’t actually require a special education teacher if the class is under 40% special ed students.... I’m not seeing this anywhere tho?


I basically worked 15 hours today. Why are we not paid enough?


Any chemistry teachers that follow a curriculum that has premade lesson plans, PowerPoint slides and activity aligned with the standards?

2nd year sped teacher. really struggling w equity in the classroom. feel like an an assistant and not like a teacher and the kids don’t see my co-teacher and I as equals. Suggestions?

What to do with high schoolers realistically with class sizes of 90+ in a middle school sized gym???


This year I started at a new school and I get observed 4x per week. I think thats excessive. I like constructive feedback but its overwhelming. Thoughts?

We now have 12/23 off! Calendar says “dates updated”.


I’m so pumped for the long weekend next week!

Going into my first year with the DOE in two weeks and I couldn’t be more excited! My grade level will not be defined until Monday but it’s definitely 3rd or 4th. What are must haves I need?


I’m posting to try to get this bowl started! I am entering my second year as a special education teacher for the DOE. The DOE can be very demanding so I am excited to learn from one another!
