Has anyone moved from classroom teaching to an online position? How was the transition? Do you feel less stressed/burned out?

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.

I might be moving into a Tech Leader sort of role next year. I currently teach math and have probably an intermediate level of confidence with technology. Besides getting my Google level 1 and 2 certifications, what general ideas do you have to help me improve my abilities? I might be working with several types of devices, solving printer and projector issues, and possibly dealing with sound and audio equipment

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? The states are failing PUBLIC SCHOOLS and so called CHARTER SCHOOLS are often just Public Schools PRIVATELY OWNED! WE NEED TO LEARN TO TEACH A NEW WAY! Thanks for the soapbox, SHOULDN'T Trained Teachers get paid more instead of Districts saving money hiring SUBSTITUTES (Babysitters!!!!) that only have HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMAS!

Hello Fellow Teachers, I start school after Labor Day and this year I am going to be working with the students who are EL and no longer teaching 7-8th grade Spanish. I am excited but anxious since I haven’t had an EL role in a few years. What advice can you give me? I want my students to feel supported and I want to do a good job.

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.

Debating on leaving my current position as a Special Ed Aide. Recently just finished my bachelors of arts degree in elementary education but the district is refusing to bump my pay grade up to highly qualified. I have mentioned leaving to my supervisor but get a guilt trip every time I bring it up. Its just not practical to be educated with certs and only making $15 an hour. Do I stay with my kiddos that rely on the routine or do I leave and do whats best for myself?

I would like to say, Happy Mother’s Day to all the ladies out there! Parent or not, as teachers we take on the role of ‘mother’ frequently.

I have accepted a new position outside of education. My start date is May 16. When should I turn in my notice at school? Should I turn it in now and give them six notice or wait for two weeks? My only concern about turning in my resignation now, is retaliation from admin. Any advice is appreciated.

I then got another teaching position. The school atmosphere is lighter and feels happy over all. But each day, I dont think the true joy I had before my last school is still there.
