I'm currently a middle school social studies teacher (this is my 10th year of teaching) and formerly worked as a home health care manager at our local area agency on aging (4.5 years) and as a behavioral modification counselor for adjudicated teens in a residential behavioral modification program (5 years). I had a tutoring business for 1.5 years as well. I'm looking to transition away from the classroom if anyone has any jobs or job leads I might be qualified for, please let me know. Thank you!
I teach PreK in a public school. Our state allows PreK programs to nap without masks if proper ventilation is provided. I have 16 children, a minimum of 3 feet apart, no masks, with two LOUD air filters, two tiny windows open, the outside and hall door open, at average in 72-76 degrees. What is your childcare classroom doing for rest time?
I work in an internal ops role in consulting, I started a a week ago while also being accepted into a top exec mba program starting in the fall.

When would you ask/tell the manager about this and if they would be supportive?
Hi music teachers! How are you surviving? I’ve been teaching band and choir for a long time, but distance learning and Zoom has me stumped. I’m lucky to have a job, I realize. What are some things you’re doing in your virtual classrooms that your music students enjoy?
Split classes take away joy! We have 6-7 classes at each grade level and they split 1-2 into the remaining 5 so we can have a 5 day schedule. Big classes plus the classroom culture homeroom teachers work so hard to achieve are ruined. Advice? (Plus we are told to "not be negative" by admin.)
I can manage my classroom better if I don’t respond to emails outside of office hours. This gives my mind a break and by consequence refreshes me for the next day. It also sets a boundary.
Moms! Need advice asap! Can't decide.

In a science middle school classroom, aside from materials manager, secretary, botanist & cleanup... can you think of any other jobs for students?
I decided to leave my latest teaching position after being in the classroom for 7 years. The stress was absolutely crazy and took a toll on me. This was my second career (I was a journalist before that). What can I do with a Bachelor’s in Journalism and a Master’s in Childhood Education? I would to use them both if possible!
Hi I am a new teacher intern hired yesterday. I will be teaching second grade. School reopens on Aug 17. I do not have my own materials. I do not know what materials are there in my classroom. What should I buy? I will be talking to the Principal on Monday to find out more. I am very excited and nervous at the same time. Any tips and suggestions for me would be helpful.
Always a student. This helps me relate to my own. Mistakes. Confusion. Oopsies like giving the wrong answer when we KNOW it. Learning keeps me off any high horse because sure as the world I’d otherwise get knocked down. We are all students in our classrooms. An indirect bonus is that the connection we make by remembering what it’s like to be a student helps us manage the class better. We relate. We admit. We connect.

Looking for entry level gig economy sites and apps. I’ve tried a lot but I’m always looking for new ones I haven’t heard of yet maybe.
I don’t qualify for anything like Priori sadly. Just need entry level ones that aren’t competitive, maybe geared toward low tier school grads with bottom class rank.

What accountability systems does your school have in place for missing assignments/zeroes? Trying to help with ideas for next year!
Every year. Everything off the walls, electronics packed up or covered, flag wrapped and put away, books put away, book cases covered, chairs stacked, and desks moved to the side. Even if I’m staying in the same room. Every single year.
Yes, we often have summer school at our school. But everyone has to clean up like that whether their rooms are used or not. 🤷🏻♀️
We r all blessed to be working and get paid through these times. We have it better than most..
No, they are blessed to have us still working. We are not 'lucky' to have a job. We earned our jobs. We are essential workers. Don't ever forget how important we teachers are to a democratic republic. We are not lucky to have a racist autocratic bully for a president.
I think it really depends on the district and leadership. Some are to the book, return keys, clean up, stack up and put away as much as possible and others may give you more time or trust you with the keys. Currently though, due to regulations to clean classrooms, we have been asked to even remove all personal furniture and take home as much as we can that is ours.
We just have to put lose items in the cupboard, remove student work, and turn in our keys. Which I am fine with. Makes me relax and enjoy my summer so I can recharge for the next year.
We have to pack up everything that isn’t attached to the walls every year. It’s so they can clean and wax floors, sometimes paint, but I had to buy a lot of moving boxes. I try to store them at home to reuse for multiple years
We have a checklist of things that need to be accomplished before we leave that last day. A lot of the things that you mentioned in your post are things that are on the list mine is an extensive clean. We do have to make sure that our counters are cleared off and certain things are off the wall. If the room is scheduled for a painting that everything off the wall. We do have to make sure that desks and chairs are tighten up in the center of the room and we do turn in keys at the end of the day. If for some reason we need to get back into our rooms, we can get her keys back and into our rooms during the summer. I'm not sure how that will happen this summer but we have a very understanding a custodial staff that's willing to help out.
We have a checklist of things (book counts, turn in chromebooks/iPads) to do before we leave. We don't have to turn in keys or do intensive cleaning, but we do have to clean out our room which includes us moving chairs, desks, tables out in the hallway. Basically, get things off the floor for custodial staff to clean the floors. We have been able to sign up to go to our rooms. We can only have 10 in the building at a time with temperature checks before we can go in.
We were required to sign out after posting our grades and cleaning our rooms and submitting our keys for as ll returnees.
We have to turn in our badge and keys. We have to close out our classroom, but we don't have to clean it out. All of our things just need to put away so they can clean our room.
We’re required, but I never do.
We have to turn in our keys AFTER we do the above.
This year is the first year I get to keep my keys.
I'm pretty sure all our teachers in our school district give up their keys at the end of the year regardless of whether they're staying at the same school or not. I would rather not have the keys if something happens I don't want to be the one they're looking at.
I had to do the usual: turn in keys, wrap up computers, clean some shelves and dismantle bulletin boards; that was about it.
Every. Single. Year!!! All electronics must be unplugged and stored in a locked cabinet. All surfaces must be cleared completely. And ... of course... keys turned in. One year I was given two keys to the same file cabinet and some how misplaced one during the year. Shen I turned my keys in (minus one of the duplicates), I thought they were going to insist on handing over my eldest child as collateral until I located the missing key...🤪!
Give up keys - NO
Clean out room - YES
Intensive Cleaning - NO
And we have no one who checks behind us to verify any of it. We USUALLY have a check-off list to turn in indicating we did everything we were supposed to. Shoot, we didn't even sign out our school laptops for the Summer. It's just been quite bizarre, to say the least.
My old school, we only had to keep stuff off of moveable surfaces and had to turn in our keys. Our keys didn’t open the outside doors anyway. My new school, they told me I can work anytime I want to so I get to keep all my keys. We didn’t have to do deep cleaning. I can’t get in this week because they are already stripping and waxing the floors.
Yes to all.
Haven't heard anything yet and we only have two weeks yet.
But normally I would have to. With Covid-19 and leaving the way we did, I still have my keys. Went to my classroom today to clean up and pack up. Only ten people allowed on campus today and what we chose to do was left up to us. For once, I got to leave things on the walls and I got to keep my keys for now.
Well, I have a large locked cabinet. I have to take all wall decorations down. I also use mailing labels to tag my desk, student desks and other furniture, as anything movable goes in halls to deep clean rooms. After I lick cabinet, I hand in keys.
I don’t have keys but have to turn in my work id as does everyone else in the school. I have to have all tape off the floor and walls, everything off the floor and on wheels so it can be wheeled out to clean the room.
