a Mother ran into my classroom screaming & demanding I postpone a 3rd gd math test because SHE was too stressed about it and didn't feel her son was prepared. I said no and she LOST it. What do I do?
I'm worried about having enough supplies for my students to get through the school year. Any recommendations for classroom grants?
There are several children in my classroom who keep having tech issues. How can I support them without taking away from instruction time?
Our school is modified remote. Students stay in one classroom all day. We wear masks full time. Another teacher has my kids during planning. She doesn't believe in masks. She wears a "mask", basically a lacy piece of fabric. She doesn't enforce masks either. I've brought it to my principal's attention in the past when she wouldn't wear a mask, but now she has a "mask", technically. My anxiety is high. I don't even want my kids to go to her, but I need a break. How do I handle this?
I’m new at working in a school and a lot of the other staff advise me not to be too nice to students but I’m overall generally pretty nice. Any tips? Im not okay with giving kids attitude at 7:50 because they’re late (as other staff do)
When choosing a daycare what are some things you've found to be important? Is having a live video stream of the classroom a good thing or bad? Having a really hard time choosing between one that's closeby but no reviews, and one that's a little farther with great reviews and wait list. Neither have live video whereas some others with crazy wait lists do.
I want to know how they are proposing punishing teachers if they teach CRT" when I haven't received a curriculum for it!
General help question, what do you do about reducing the amount of writing you do in the classroom for teaching or "in-the-moment" portions? For helping with hand cramps. Are digital tablets useful in that instance? Software aids? Graphic design programs?

I have tried different methods of hanging posters on my classroom walls. My walls are painted drywall. over the summer my room just got painted I'm trying to hang things in a manner that won't pull off the paint. In the past I used fo am tape but it would pull off the paint when I removed posters. Does anyone have a go-to way of hanging posters on drywall?
For those of you who attended a FT MBA program, what did you do when you were not in the classroom? Besides traveling, partying, studying/homework, interviewing, etc. Were you often attending events to network, getting lunch with faculty, enjoying a hobby, something else? Thanks! *Repost*
If you were given absolute freedom to do anything you wanted in your classroom for 5 weeks, what unit would you teach? What kind of writing would you do?
Moving to a classroom of assessment capable visible learners. Any ideas for anchor charts on the Art room ?
As far back as I can remember (grade school), I would have extreme anxiety going back to school and often times would be crying, physically resisting going to the classroom and even feeling ill so I can stay home. Strangely enough I was a top student and did well in school once the anxiety went away. I have coped better with transitions of “going back” as I grew up but still feel this anxiety after a work break. I feel depressed/anxious and want to quit. Does anybody else struggle with this?
Can’t decide between Cornell’s Metro vs. Americas EMBA program. They both seem to be great and offer an Cornell MBA upon graduation. Americas costs about 155k while the Metro NY costs 205k. Both programs are 60 credits in different formats. I can’t seem to understand the difference in price. I like the Americas program because of its flexibility (can attend from selected cities across the US so I would not be stuck in NY). I like the Metro NY for the in-person classroom environment.
There is a huge push for our district to install audio and visual cameras to the classrooms. What do you all think?
Is anyone else having difficulty when teaching pronouns now with non-binary terms? My students insist on the fact that Susan doesn’t have to be she it could be they. Answer key says she. How do we handle this?!?!
