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.

I teach 4th grade at a Christian school. I have been teaching for over 30 years but I have been at this school for 2 years. Since I have been working at this school it seems like everything I do in my classroom it's something wrong with it according to my supervisor. Recently, I was told that I am not getting a new contract for the new school year. I have to find a new school. I was told that I am not a good fit for the school.


I will be teaching Chemistry this year in a modular classroom with no lab area. Any suggestions on virtual labs? We have chromebooks at ourvschool.

Does anyone have experience working for Connections Academy or another virtual academy? I am very interested in teaching from home, but most virtual jobs I have reviewed still require you to come to an office/ school building. I want to know what it is like, specifically the work load. Would you say more or less than public? How does classroom management, amount of grading, and freedom of curriculum differ?


I’m moving to new state (Indiana from South Carolina) and and going to a 6th grade position. Any suggestions for must have things for a 6th grade gen ed classroom?


Hello! I am in need of a job that makes at least $70k and is virtual in the DC area. I am adaptable, organized and a leader.

I would love to connect and see what possibilities are out there for me.

So I teach Science and PE as well as do SPED. I’m on a sub credential while I finish up a couple of classes. WASC is saying that I am doing too much to provide rigor. I find that unjust and unfair. They spent all of 5 minutes in my classroom. I’m a great teacher and have been extremely flexible. Now I’m dinged for it?


What are your views about including coding and incorporating some kind of computer science in your classroom routine?

Good Evening My Fellow Christian Educators! I realize it is going to be challenging for me this year...with so many of my students performing below grade level expectations in ELA and MATH and also ensuring that all students follow the COVID Guidelines in the classroom. I still feel hopeful that God will bless me with the knowledge on how to effectively impact each one of those kids. Let's remember to keep all educators lifted in prayer this year.
Have a wonderful school year!!
God Bless All❤️


I am looking for ideas on how to teach spelling in the classroom.


Hey there Fellow ECEs! Can we talk classroom themes? Does your school give themes to chose from or can you come up with your own? And how about purchasing decor vs making decor?

WILL Smith. Sigh. I wonder how many people WILL be thinking twice now because of this “slap heard around the world” . WILL this cause us to pause? What WILL we learn from this?


I have a burning question. I have been teaching for over 18 years, which nags me.

Suppose you agree that the provided professional development offered through our districts is ineffective. Why not invest in your professional development by seeking a coach or mentor or even pay for professional resources that would help? To put it plainly, why don't we educators invest in our professional development?


Google forms make for great exit tickets. Of course this only works if your students all have a device. Hard copy exit tickets can become unmanageable, depending on class sizes and frequency.


Start each class with a few seconds of stillness. It takes consistent practice. Most students will blurt something silly out after about 4 seconds. Expect it and smile. After time is up ask students to notice what they were doing during that time. No shame. Notice and strive to be more still next.

1. Hands, feet, mouth, arms, legs still (a veritable challenge)
2. Close the eyes.
3. Long exhales to bring in the calming chemical acetylcholine.


Got dread? Picture yourself having a great day. Managing all the yuk makes for a successful day.

Instead of “I can”, try “I GET to”


Breathing bubbles calm the class even for just a minute.


We can’t have classroom management without taking care of ourselves first. Rest. Even if it’s for 2 minutes. We close our eyes and reset.
