Any suggestions or ideas on working with teachers who are less than enthusiastic about utilizing technology as a means to bring “more” to their lessons?

Take a lesson they are doing or are going to do and give the lesson a boost with tech, then model it for them.
Are you hosting any PD? It seems that Google Forms is like a gateway drug. Once teachers see how easy it is to make and grade an assignment, they are hooked and are open to using other tools.
I find that most teachers that are less than enthusiastic are afraid of failing in front of students because they are uncomfortable with tech. Try using something (tech) you know they are good at and incorporate into a lesson.
Remember that tech is so overwhelming and daunting for some so positive feedback is most important for the smallest accomplishment.

I love this response! I would have said the same thing.

If it is “more” without a direct measurable outcome, then teachers don’t have time for it.

I teach some drum lessons on the side and was wondering what a good range for a 30 min lesson would be? For those I’ve taught, the kids are typically in elementary school, so I’m getting them the basics. It’s been fun seeing some of them perform in talent shows even within the year! Curious what everyone thinks the market range is for good (not professional) drum lessons are?

O am a SPED teacher who was teaching K-4. As of Nov. 28th, my administrator switched me with the other SPED teacher who was teaching middle school. There was no warning. We just got an email on a Sunday. Neither one of us wants thos move. Do we have a legal ground to stand on? We have both been so upset and depressed over this. My students miss me, and I miss them. I taught middle school years ago and was not fond of it. I like the littles.
