I’m getting my first classroom as a special educator! What are some things that you love having in your classroom (favorite books, favorite activities, posters, decor, organization tools, anything!)?
There are several children in my classroom who keep having tech issues. How can I support them without taking away from instruction time?
How eerie was it to pack up your classroom this year? It was like a memorial with all the students' work everywhere, finished and unfinished, unfulfilled intentions, as quiet as a tomb. #covidpoetry
Is anyone else teaching from a trailer this year? They are building a bigger school, so I hope to have a regular classroom next year.
I found this article and wondered what people here thought about it. It deals with teacher licensing tests. Among other things, it presents the case for a positive correlation between performance on a licensing test and performance in the classroom. It also argues there is an outsized number of teachers (over 50%) that don’t pass the licensing test on the first try. Any newer teachers out there who can weigh in on their teacher prep program and the licensing test experience? https://www.nctq.org/publications/Driven-by-Data:-Using-Licensure-Tests-to-Build-a-Strong,-Diverse-Teacher-Workforce/
There is a huge push for our district to install audio and visual cameras to the classrooms. What do you all think?
Dropping this in a few bowls, sorry if you see it twice. I'm transitioning from teaching 8th grade mathematics at a public school to teaching a 7/8 self-contained classroom at a charter school. Any advice for teaching mixed grade levels or multi subject is appreciated: scheduling, classroom setup, subject order, behavior management, etc. I'm struggling to find my rhythm with only 6 weeks before kids return. Thanks to everyone for your commitment and time, enjoy your summer!
How many classrooms have you had in your career?
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*

I am a California teacher looking to relocate. My son is pushing for Boerne. I have spent most of my life in small private Christian schools and loved it! When I moved to public school the large class sizes and trauma/sped students filling my classroom burned me out. I moved to homeschool this year (with my same district) and love it!!! I am curious about teaching in Texas. Class sizes, special ed, private school, etc. Any thoughts would be appreciated!
I was gifted with 4 new desktop computers for my classroom! I teach 3rd and 4th grade learning support! Any suggestions for free and/or inexpensive academic websites?
Has anyone here transitioned into teaching from another profession through alternative certification? Did you feel like you were prepared for the classroom by the end?

I’m so confused about if business travel is really going to be frequent this fall due to the COVID cases rising….
Mother superannuated today and was able to watch her farewell speech. Feeling very emotional (i.e. tearing up at midday) as I recall our humble beginnings and how much my middle class family has sacrificed and achieved. My parents sent their only daughter for higher education abroad and it is tough to see them grow old. Getting exposed to so many new facets of life as a 25F…. just one of those days. Kind words only please 🙏
