Welcome to teachers who Cricut! Right now I’m doing a classroom theme for the first time and attempting to make a whole bunch of tropical flowers to go along with my jungle theme! I found this tutorial and it’s been super helpful but I’m having a hard time with some of the different types because the blade keeps shredding my card stock with some of the designs!!! https://jennifermaker.com/cricut-paper-flowers/ here’s what I have so far:
I'm about to lose my mind today. Had a kid OF HIS ROCKER all day today. Took admin 20 min to come get him, & now he's throwing furniture downstairs, calling me a liar, cursing my name. I'm so over this job. This is not an every *day* occurrence, but at least once a week I am doing this with him, or I am dealing with my girls getting into fist fights over God knows what drama. I don't know how much longer I can take this. The stress is getting to me, & IMAGINE my other kids watching... 😞

Best ways to root out the red flags in a teaching job interview and a school tour? I'm finally ready to get back to the classroom but don't want to end up at another toxic place where admin doesn't look out for the teachers at all. I know to avoid places where janitorial stuff is being ignored or other health and safety issues, but this is only my second interview (worked for 10 years at my old school, left during covid). TIA!

What is copyright policy on showing Dead Poets Society (DVD) in your classroom? I left the movie for a sub. An admin nixed it, and told the sub to play games- which I suggested earlier, but the sub was really awful and I was unexpectedly out all week. Admin told me because it’s a Disney movie, we can’t show it. But Disney owns a lot. I thought your classroom is considered a private room if each student is enrolled, and it’s for instructional purposes.

Any teachers in the New Mexico or Nevada area? We're thinking about relocating. Just curious about some ups and downs.
Hi SpEd Teachers, is anyone else facing EXTREME staff shortages as a result of state funding? We are not able to meet my students' IEP requirements (not even close) due to not enough paraprofessionals and the district flat out refusing to hire more. I've lost 70+ hrs/week of para hours over the past few years and my students are really suffering. This leaves our district open to lawsuits, but the real problem is the state's education budget. What can we do?? This isn't going to fix itself.
I have gone down the rabbit hole of Google Slides and all of the possibilities! It's going to make assigning work so much easier. A bit of work up-front, but I prefer it to laminating and velcroing!!!

I’m just finishing up my student teaching and I can’t decide if I want to work at the elementary or Junior High level. I was offered a position at both placements. All opinions welcome. Thanks!
Does your district offer prefillable, vague IEP goals for students in the system you create your IEPs in? Do you feel like they properly address your students’ needs even after you make edits?

What % of your students have difficulty with reading? Have you asked if parents had difficulties with reading? Dyslexia is more common than we realize, and I would love to know if you use any specific curriculum for students with Dyslexia.
I need your help, please. I have a student who simply does not stay on track unless an adult is monitoring him. His quizzes go unfinished and writing assignments are put aside to browse online.
I also would like to ask if there is a way to prevent him from browsing other websites online during instructional time?
I am open to suggestions on how to keep him on track during Math and Writing assignments. Any assistance with this would be helpful.
