Texas Teachers

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

Today I was removed from my current position and am being sent to another school with no explanation. I loved my school and my students. I helped out with everything and tried to be a positive person on campus. I think I’m being replaced by a football coach because they need my position for a coach. I am heartbroken. I only found out when my new principal reached out for a meeting. I can’t tell you how horrible I feel. Worthless and way less Important than a coach. The dedication meant nothing

We had Friday and today off (tomorrow is teacher in-service), and I am working today. Anyone else so bored they are working on a day off?

Please Drop links and free resources I can share with parents for their children during this time that schools are closed, for distant learning.

I'm incredibly surprised that Dallas ISD has not set a return date like other districts. Their closure is "indefinitely"

If your attorney at your union carefully recommends and spells out how to take a leave of absence with a Dr note saying specifically, "The Teacher Cannot Work," is there an unspoken reason why?

Does a principal have the right to tell a teacher who works late, and has an alarm code, that they must leave the school by a certain time?

😱 My two week formal observation window closes Friday. I’ve done 7 labs with 2 subjects. Now, these labs would have happened anyway but admin. always comes in when I’m lecturing.🤦🏼‍♀️
