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

Welp. Happy Teacher’s Appreciation Week to us. Education is 20% of our budget but 60% of our budget cuts. Thanks Ohio.

Are classrooms going to finally get cleaned by maintenance staff or are we going to have to continue to wipe all surfaces down and buy our own cleaning supplies?

How realistic is it given already overcrowded classrooms to space students out 6 feet apart? Every school I’ve taught in has serious overcrowding problems already with lack of space and overflow.

...May as well start this off with putting a smile on people's faces. My guess is it's probably already a viral "oldie but goldie" for some you but still worth sending out....

Any ideas for calming extremely loud students? I don’t mind if they talk, but they’re literally shouting. I’ve tried tickets for good behavior, participation points and desk talks, no luck.

Anyone leave mid year for another school? I know they can suspend your license if your school fights it. My other concern is that it’ll look bad on a resume in the future to say I broke contract.

Has anyone left for a different school mid year? I’ve spoken with DOE and they say they may suspend your license up to one year, but I’m wondering how common this really is. Thoughts?

Just sat through a full day of OTES 2.0 training my district held for us. Anyone else feel overwhelmed, and that you're the world's worst teacher by the end of these types of trainings?

I have an Ohio 4-9 math & science license but will move to Colorado. Does anyone have experience with Ohio to Colorado reciprocity? Do they accept OAE scores or will I have to take the tests again?
