Anyone else here have administrators at his or her school dropping in on Zoom classes or creating student accounts to join Google Classroom for some classes?

Our admin has full access to all of that through google suites. They don’t have to add themselves as students, they can check anything anytime they like. We use google meet, so all they have to do is click the meeting link in the classroom. Bonus for you, if they do actually add themselves as students they’ll get like 100 emails a day anytime you post something, grade it and return it, etc, so drive them insane by posting extra, at 10 pm, giving them zeros. Watch how fast they drop out.

We are just now setting our goals for evals. The show must go on!

We are using zoom - and they drop in on several classrooms everyday. They sometimes just say hi - and ask how things are going (seeing if they need to pull little shantel into a breakout room to ask her to not be laying in bed, sleeping, running around or annotating without permission- that kind of thing. We have found it SUPER helpful. They kids never know and don’t want to be caught doing something they shouldn’t. What if you started a “caught you being good” reward system with them and admin. My experience is they are mostly checking up on the kids. And I’m sure you’re all doing an excellent job! Maybe it’ll be a good informal eval as well! ;)

Yes, that's what our FAC is working towards. I called it harassment too.

In March when the principals required to be added to the Google Classrooms it felt like big brother. Now our direct supervisor is a co-teacher on all our classes. The administration team has all our Google Meet Links. Our admin has not stayed on long. Yesterday the principal came in during HR and said, "Is everyone here?" I said, "It is 8:17. The students have untill 8:20 to sign on." 😑

In Microsoft teams all admins are already added and come in and out whenever. Just like real life, doesn’t bother me.

Our admins aren’t really bothering us too much. They can get in any time they want, but they generally just say hi and observe a few minutes then go. I have not had any bad experiences so far. But they figured out last year not add themselves as students or they be bombarded with piles of emails

No. My principal would never drop into virtual like that. And if he wanted to do an evaluation we would have notice.

What state are you in?

We had to add my Principal and AP to our Google Meets so they could come into our virtual classroom and observe.

Teachers at my school are feeling uncomfortable bc admin is dropping in and staying for 20-25 min. Teachers also don't know why they're enrolled in the Google Classroom. Seems a little too Big Brother for their comfort level.

We use teams so they are definitely a part of those who log in

I am really tired and I think I’m burning out. I love my job, my account, and my team (for the most part). Working from home with 2 kids didn’t really hit me until I had to start picking up slack at work. I had found a good balance. But now I find I’m short with my older kid, house chores have gone undone, or work suffers. I had a review recently and I’m well received but the window for a raise or promotion has passed and they will look into it during the next open window (continued)

Random thought. Many teachers live and die by their whiteboards, and that means dry erase markers are essential classroom supplies. Far more expensive than the chalk I started with, but I digress. I feel like the only person on the planet who prefers bullet-tip markers to the standard chisel tip. I am particularly fond of the Pilot refillables, despite their limited colors. Anyone else care to share their marker thoughts on markers and the merits of chisel tips vs bullet?
