Does anyone notice that their students are extra talkative since returning to the classroom? It makes sense and is natural, but sometimes I wish I had that mute button back! Is that bad?

Don't worry- you're normal. I wish I had a mute button on me all the time. But I bet it is temporary, since they're probably just excited to see their friends again.

Depends on the class! I have some that are deathly quiet and others that won't be quiet with each other, and ones where they ask me questions and engage beautifully. I love middle school because every class is so different!

Thinking back to when I was in school. What do teachers have to do now that they didn't 20-30 years ago? What do they need to provide now that they did not have to provide back then? I don't recall buying anything than pencils/paper/folders. We covered our used books with newspaper or paper bags Classrooms were simple, not every inch of wall space was covered in charts, etc. The districts/teachers supplied nothing extra. What changed that teachers have to spend their own $ now?
