Curious hypothetical question: (no merit or source whatsoever) Would you rather lose 1% of your salary to gain extra custodians OR detail clean your classroom yourself?

A lot of our custodians can’t even be bothered to sweep down the rows of desks... so I’d rather be given access to the closets with cleaning supplies and clean my own room then give up 1% to hire more custodians to do the same level job. We have some fierce custodians but it’s few and far between compared to the people who use a Bluetooth headset to yell at their family while they pretend to clean each shift.

Another duty to add to my existing ones. Educator, nurse, counselor, police detective, cafeteria lady, and now custodian. What did I leave off?

Lose the 1% My school is huge and I already do detail cleaning in my classroom... but extra custodial staff would only benefit everyone

Do it myself. I get that the custodians have a ton to do, but they basically just barely sweep my room and empty my two trash bins that I leave right by the door. If they gave us access to cleaning supplies, I'd happily do it myself.

I’m at a school where the custodians actually do their job and frequently so since 1% is so little (because I make so little lol) then yeah because I wouldn’t want to add another thing to my plate to get micromanaged on. However at my old school they vacuumed ONCE a semester and never wiped anything down, the custodial staff only cleaned main areas. It always made me really salty because there was just no support at that school. We had to clean everything, pay for ALL supplies, etc.

Im already sweeping daily and that is after the custodian has finished his daily pass through the room. Also I wipe desks and teachers have to throw the recycling.

I always detailed my own room anyway, so I take the extra paid.

Do it myself. I try to do that anyway so that the custodians don't have to. It's insane to think that they have time to vacuum every room and do all the other stuff well.

I already dust my room weekly, clean desks and counter tops weekly, let alone have the kids help clean floors for points I guess I could just start doing this daily

Oh hell no. I can barely keep my home clean! I would give them 2%

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?

Neither have live video whereas some others with crazy wait lists do.

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.
