How do you keep school at school? I’ve been on call 24/7 (summer too) for years for our bilingual families. My new position doesn’t require that. Do you check your school email at home? On your phone?

I’m not feeling very welcomed at my new school this year. It’s so hard because it’s the position I want and I love the kids. I constantly feel talked about and outcast. For no reason..

Hypothetical question: I you were to accept a job, then a better one comes along, would it be bad to switch? I’m in no position to even make that choice. I’m just curious

Out of curiosity, do you work other jobs outside of your contracted/regular teaching position? Is it a need or just ‘fun’ money? What other job(s) are you working?

I was invited to interview for a 6th grade position but currently work with 7th and 8th graders. There is quite a difference between years and I’m wondering what the noticeable differences are in 6th?

I don't know, but I just don't feel it this year. I have little helpful support from admin. I was offered the position of department chair and was given NOTHING to help me prepare. Feeling lost.

Some high needs schools say that you don't need the exact cert for the position but that you have to be "highly qualified". What does this mean?
