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?

Primary day here in NH. Anyone have any thoughts on who would be the best candidate based on their ed. platform? They all seem to have a favorable position. Having a hard time deciding. Any thoughts?

If you were working as a "teaching assistant" basically a glorified title for an aide and you were offered a teaching position (in a different district) in the middle of the year, would you take it???

Is it worth it to accept a long-term sub position when you don't get benefits and you really just want to hold out for a perm position?

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?

Just applied for a high school position. My admin and being in a tested subject are too much. Hopefully next year it will be as good as my last secondary spot- if I get the transfer, that is!

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?

How often do you actually do an exit ticket with your students? I find that it is a logistical nightmare to do 140 sticky-notes a day for example and have kind of given up on the idea.

It seems every school I work at has a skeleton crew working. Everyone’s working 2 to 3 times harder than should be. I think I would be willing to take a little pay cut if it meant hiring help. You?
