About to interview for a high school English position. It's been 20 years since I taught that grade level; I've been in 3rd grade for 11 years. What advice do you have for me to prepare for this possible interview and change? I've been planning for this for years, but now that the opportunity has arrived, I would love some input before the interview

I found out today that I am being moved back into my old position. I had been a special Ed teacher for 20 years and finally had a job teaching math. I LOVE teaching math! But because the special Ed program has been such a mess, I am more needed in my old job. I have cried a lot this evening. Worse than that, more than likely, I will be transferred at the end of this semester. I am not being demoted because I qualify as a highly effective teacher. Any advice out there?

Hello everyone! I’m already considering what my next steps for next year . Is it bad that I want to leave . I’m at a charter right which is my second year here but this is also my first year in a dyslexia position. I feel that I’m not appreciated for what I do and people believe we have it easier than other educators. I got cheated out of my pay and even if Im certified I was told my pay wouldn’t increase next year. Thoughts on this please?

Would love to talk to someone who works Advancy, I am currently a Master's student studying business with previous consulting/financial services internships. I plan on applying for the Junior Consultant role. (plz ignore the middle school admin tag haha)

So I’m going to accept another position in the school district just because of the toxicity, lack of respect, no team player, or the teacher acting like the lead in the classroom. I will be starting next semester in January, but I do not want to tell my co workers though, I will only tell my principal just because I feel like it’s best to let her know but my co workers I don’t want here drama talk or whining that I’m leaving. Also when I do leave block them from my life so social media? Thanks!

There are a lot of teachers here who are looking for an exit from their current job. Are there VC angels out there who would consider a start up business plan using the pool of disgruntled academic entrepreneurs a.k.a. teachers , and create a marketplace where existing homeschool pods can hire you for the year and you’d act like a contractor putting your work online with canvas and teaching remotely?

Hello! We are only a few weeks into school and I’m completely burned out. I’m so tired of the constant disrespect. I feel like all I’m doing is managing behaviors instead of teaching. Has anyone gone from an in-person teaching position to an online teaching position? I’m debating moving in this direction. Our school has an online program and I might wait and see if a position opens there next year. If not, I’m going to look elsewhere. Any insight into online teaching would be appreciated.

If schools are PUBLIC why are they being privatized instead of federalized? Shouldn't ALL children be able to get the same quality education with quality teachers?

I'm all for accelerated teacher internships... that's how I initially started. In the first Bilingual/ Spanish program- USC and LAUSD. Had to have a BA and ability to speak Spanish. They didn't accept HS graduates, veteran or not! Standards not lowered! I had to take entrance exams, state tests, and take out loans! District reneged on hiring us, newly licensed at higher salary, expanded the program and hired the new cheaper interns! Wipe-out credentialed teacher loans and increase our pay!

This is my 5th year teaching (1st grade) and there is a spot opening up next year for the art teacher. Several staff members have suggested I should switch & I'm very open to it.
I'm about to have my 1st baby & I know how being a homeroom teacher consumes me more than I'd like to admit. I know it will be a different beast, but I'm also conflicted knowing I'm not burnt out and could give more in the 1st grade position I have and the grade I feel I do my best in.
Any advice?

After seeing some responses about expected working hours, I am curious about which states do not allow teachers’ unions. Why is that the case? Is there any protection for your position? Who negotiates your contract? In some states is it by district? I admit to being surprised by this as I have never taught outside of Massachusetts.
