Are you required to come into your building? I'm teaching vitrtually, but 2 days a week I'm required to come into my classroom.
Does anyone use VR in their classroom? I just discovered CoSpaces Edu, and I'm looking for other ideas.
As a trans I struggled during this time of the year. My obligation to discuss how hedonist this whole Valentine’s Day is and how it celebrates disproportionately cisgender relationships without ANY regard of that impact on the non cis or transitioning or RE transitioning people. It’s important the feelings of those who are not sure of their gender status into consideration when planning group activity. Especially for students who have not decided to reveal..
I never feel any kind of spark of inspiration when it comes to decorating my classroom. Anyone have ideas for themes I could use as a starting point?
Has anyone used Newsela in their classrooms? I hope to add an assignment to each unit to read an article, do an activity. To have feedback, do I have to assign articles or can they pick any article?
This is my Bitmoji classroom for distance learning - activities that can be done with it include 1)scavenger hunt for different websites around the room 2)finding new websites for the classroom 3)how the link to the classroom should be designed. Have fun exploring
I have taught at 5 different schools yet only Henrico Co PS place a moderate value on Behavior intervention as a means of response to disruptive behavior, creating rapport , restorative circles and trauma informed care. Suspensions are not a long term deterrent to violence, bullying and resolving our children’s mental health issue. Are your school systems supporting consistent and prompt intervention policies?
I am starting to see news that states teachers are now considered essential workers(thanks to Trump) and if we are exposed to COVID in our classrooms, we will not be permitted to quarantine unless we are showing symptoms. REALLY?
I bought two kindle fire tablets today. I want to use them in my classroom this year, specifically in my listening station (instead of the cassette+books) how do you use them in your classrooms?
Any advice on how to approach my co-teacher who write IEPs but isn't helping much in the classroom?
Let’s talk second and third jobs? How many jobs do you have to make ends meet outside of the classroom?
I am looking for high-interest, culturally-relevant novels that are of literary value and appropriate for the classroom.
Is there anything in particular in your school/classroom that you’re really super proud of? Decoration, curriculum, just anything! I feel like being inspired to try new things that work. Please share!
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?
Anyone found a way that works to teach mid to high level students (courses) effectively besides a flipped model? Recording lessons without an audience is going to be the death of me, and live zoom session direct instruction isn't working. During those, I've been trying to recreate the classroom experience; at the board and all that. I need the interaction to be good.
Did I miss a memo- why do I keep see teachers calling their students “friends?” When did that become a thing?
Life after the classroom... Knowing that I want to retire and focus more on dyslexia, I am interested in your thoughts about creating a 501c3 and/or LLC to support reading for students and adults with dyslexia, parent advocacy, and understanding how to navigate best practices instead of de minimus that is offered by most districts, and legislative actions. Can anyone offer any advice? I'm OG trained with 4 teaching credentials, 3 MAs, and an EdD in Higher Education. We do make a difference!

Nice! The post animation looks good!
This may be a hot take - but as a younger person, working with parents of small kids (especially new parents) is so frustrating. I frequently find myself responsible for picking up the slack due to their family commitments - it’s also somehow completely socially acceptable for kids to barge into zoom meetings screaming. I wouldn’t find it nearly as bothersome if I felt like leadership and parent colleagues took my issues and non work commitments seriously in addition to that of parents and kids
Got an offer for L.E.K. Consulting but with a 6 month “pilot” as a lateral hire. I want to take it. LEKers, any insights or thoughts about this program?
Had heated call with my SM . SM told me to, "pull up" and that he would find out if I was, "really bout that life". What does this mean?? TIA
This is going to sound crazy - has anyone ever encounter another person showing up for the job on day one? 😕 I really don’t think this is the guy we interviewed on Zoom (for an IT position). I’ve kept it to myself so far. We are now on day three. Don’t know what I should do.
