Organization is critical for classroom management. Try assembling units into Google Slides with links to ppts, activities, etc. Color code them according to the rainbow: Unit 1 red, Unit 2 orange etc. It takes a minute at first but the payoff is a one click upload for next year! PS I use the same color code system with felt tip pens to grade my classes: 1st hr red, 2nd hr orange etc.
How do you integrate mindfulness in your classroom? Have you ever experienced a negative reaction from parents or administration?
I need to talk with a teacher about inappropriate behavior some parents are complaining that she has in the classroom. How do I approach this without accusing her or making her feel ambushed?
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.
What are some of your favorite beginning of the year activities for creating a sense of community in your classroom?

tomorrow I begin my first teaching job, it is first grade and I have had no time to prep. School started almost 2 weeks ago I need ideas for classroom management and math centers. Any help?
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.

Many teachers in my county are resigning or retiring. We are being forced to go sit in empty classrooms when we’ve been working from home this entire year. Some have health concerns, others have children they aren’t comfortable bringing up to the building. Some have children that are also in online school, so ￼easier to be home with them while working. I know not everyone agrees with some of us choosing to leave, but our county is one of the worst for Covid. We also just had to cancel 10,000 vaccinations because the truck didn’t show up.

I've been at my job for almost a year. I got moved to a team that has a good track record of promotions due to surpassed KPIs. This team is all men and women tend to "leave" or move to other teams. Which I felt was a bit of a red flag. I've been doing really good on the team and meeting targets, now all of a sudden I'm being marked down on calls for stupid reasons and nit-picking. My supervisors had a meeting with me & the new girl and played one of my calls as an example of "what not to do".
