TV with subtitle




My friend recommended listening to songs in the language, finding one/some you like and then translating the whole thing.


Read an article from Le Monde once a day

Youtube videos

Duolingo isn’t very good for an absolute beginner. I used Frenchpod 101


Songs and tv--basically you need to hear real conversation in context and it will help.

Trying to decide how to best help out a coworker without overstepping. One of the teachers on my team just finished her first year, and she will be on my team again next year. She really struggled with classroom management this year, and it got so bad that the behaviors were affecting all of us on the team. I feel like I could easily talk to her because I am the closest to her age; however, I’m not our team leader. Suggestions? Should I even get involved? I mean, it was the worst first year ever

Just started my 4th year teaching and finally feeling more confident and comfortable in the classroom. But being a young teacher, I feel like the online/hybrid learning would come more naturally to me (with how to navigate technology especially) since we did it all last year. Even so doing it this year, I’m still lost as to how to do it effectively. Anyone in the same boat?

Does it matter what I wear?

My school does not have a/c and my classroom temp hovers around 80-85 when it's about 70 outside.

My usual outfit is khakis, button down shirt over a t shirt, (plus a mask), and I'm sweating all day long. I decided to wear nice khaki shorts and a polo shirt on a really hot day and felt self conscious as soon as I got to school. There's no contract language and I see other teachers dressed like this all the time, but they're female and I'm a male. Should I care?

So my ISD split me between a HS and a MS that recently reopened. I'm the only MS band director. The MS decided, without consulting me, to use the band hall as a classroom and after school enrichment "daycare". AKA added desks and tables. How do I approach this? I feel it is not OK in the slightest. I feel the band hall should reflect the goals, discipline, and culture of the program. Not as an empty classroom.
