Do you have a place where you're able to lock up your stuff in your classroom? I don't and I'm not sure if I should make a big deal about it.

we ha e lockers in the teachers lounge. but I just put a lock on a file cabinet drawer for my purse and things.

We have a large cabinet that locks. I tend not to bring anything valuable, never carry more than $10, unless I have a purpose to, and I have dual layer locking on my phone, which is always on my person

Definitely get a padlock for a cabinet or file drawer and lock up your purse and any other valuables. I wouldn’t bring it up — just do it

Yes

We have file drawers and a closet that can be locked. I keep my purse in the file drawers behind my desks and students are not allowed behind my desk! I stress that on Day 1!

I have a locking wardrobe cupboard. It is a big deal as teachers have had money and cell phones stolen right out their desk!

Nope

Anyone else tire of the “plant mom” and “dog dad” me too conversation? It seems to be more frequent. For example, company says, “Parents, please share pictures of working from home with your kids during Covid” for a diversity and inclusion project. Undoubtedly someone responds, “what about my plant babies? 🤣”. I don’t want sympathy but I find it childish. Just give us the courtesy of understanding that plants and pets are not the same. Stop “me too’ing”
