This is so true!

Very true. This is something I see far too often in my classroom.

I see it in mine as well. You definitely are not alone.

I love this!!! Such a great quote.

This is so true! this is why I try to come to the classroom enthusiastic everyday now matter what I'm going through

I love this. This might be my quote for the week

I try to keep my students excited for this reason, because I notice if one student put their head down it has a domino effect

That's right! That's why it's important to keep our emotions in check. Always.

True!! "Enthusiasm is highly contagious, so what are you waiting for? Contaminate your students.” - J.D. Crighton

Most of my bowls are currently all about lay-offs and long times in between client projects, regardless of industry/function.

What accountability systems does your school have in place for missing assignments/zeroes? Trying to help with ideas for next year!


Everyone touts self-care for teachers. How do you guys keep up any kind of exercise during school? Right now I’m getting in 3 quality runs per week, along with at least 1 round of disc golf (about a 4 mile walk). Historically, I haven’t been able to maintain that when school is in session. Argh.


What free resources for science do you use? Preferably for middle school, but I will take anything that is useful. Thanks!


Teachers in a high needs/stressful school: would you prefer a school district where you are rotated through positions?

How long do you think it will be before schools that are full time, 100% capacity end up online? Will they end up online?


This was recently posted in a thread I was commenting on. “It frustrates me to read people’s messages from states with very few cases to act like the virus is nothing to those of us whose states have a 100k.” Syntax aside, the meaning is clear—if you are from a small state, you should zip it.

I am from a small state. Our case count will never break us out of the bottom quartile (probably never get above the bottom 5.) Does that mean I am not allowed to have an opinion?


Do you feel the need to attend staff Christmas parties and gatherings?
