Re: Summer School Compensation NC Legislature has proposed 6-week summer programs to catch up from learning loss, but the bill specifically eliminates benefits like accruing time toward retirement, and appears to restrict pay rates so we would not earn the same daily rate as our normal teaching contracts. Trying to decide whether it's worth pursuing one of those positions and curious how other states handle summer school situations.

What is your district's response to the Covid-19 Vaccine? Mine is envy us but everywhere they want us to sign up, it is already full. I think if they want us to have, they should do like they did in the past. Have a benefits fair where we could get the shot as part of it.

Feeling frustrated. Our reentry was delayed again, so I’m trying to get confirmation to continue teaching from home since we have a little baby. Well, admin says we have to get approval from HR, and HR says it’s really up to the principal whom they can’t get a hold of. If I have to go in then I’m taking sick days until my maternity leave kicks in next Thursday.  It seems simple enough to me that they would want me to keep teaching my own kids. HR seems to be on my side.

How many districts have forced teachers to take a leave of absence without pay and health insurance because they have underlying health issues and their doctor recommends virtual teaching instead of going back to brick and mortar?

There are some benefits to distance learning. Not having to deal with the knuckleheads is one. Discipline and classroom management takes so much effort. However I still miss not being able to see my students in the classroom. I feel empty. And I hate teaching into a screen.

How do people feel about federalizing education. This would put teachers on the GS pay scale where federal employees with a bachelor's degree would all have a minimum salary and federal benefits.

After 10 with my district- 2 years in my own classroom and 8 years long term subbing and all with good reviews- I got a call to sub virtually in a 5/6 class until they hire a teacher! I reminded them that I am a fully credentialed teacher looking for a position. I’m at a loss. By the way, I have no health insurance because I can’t afford it right now. Thank you for the space to vent.

A lot of the ESL positions i am Interviewing for are part time. I don’t have an issue with this but I would assume I wouldn’t get health benefits. What other jobs could I do at the same time?

Is it normal for you to ever be “ghosted” by your administration? I feel like I’m constantly emailing, calling, texting, and meeting with them and nothing gets done. As soon as I leave their office, I’m ignored. If I email/text them a question or request, I’m ignored unless it benefits them. This is at a district where I travel between 3 schools and have 3 principals. They’re all like this and communication is especially important since I have to travel.
