I have a para/assistant teacher that just wants to argue over everything. “You’re the teacher, why do I have to assess the children during break out rooms?” We have 8 kids, and I am only asking her to do 3! The other para is doing 3 and I and doing 2 with IEPs!!! How am I supposed to handle this in a professional manner virtually? Plus she is frustrated b/c o can’t explain everything. I keep telling her it’s all new to me too. Grace is not a word in her vocab. And I am feeling graceless.

She is support personnel and she is not supporting you. I’d advise you to make all of your requests in an email so that she can respond to you in the same manner. Then you might want to pull in administrative support

I have my kids this weekend and took them to get groceries for some fun meals. On the drive home, my 8-year old asked me “do you love your life?” As I gave them hugs and kisses before bed, she asked me “are you happy?”

My kids are my whole world. I wish I could have said “yes” and meant it. I hate that my daughter feels she needs to worry about me.

I just had dinner with some old friends and they are about to retire early. Part of their plan is to downsize their home, get a small condo and travel for 9-10 months a year. Does this seem crazy? I just can’t imagine it. I guess they figured the cost would be about the same but wouldn’t you miss the relationships. Wouldn’t your kids feel lost without having a sense of home? Anyone thought about this?

How is your district implementing school reentry? How are you setting up your classrooms to meeting social distancing while still allowing for free play?

I teach PreK in a public school. Our state allows PreK programs to nap without masks if proper ventilation is provided. I have 16 children, a minimum of 3 feet apart, no masks, with two LOUD air filters, two tiny windows open, the outside and hall door open, at average in 72-76 degrees. What is your childcare classroom doing for rest time?

Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing. We struggle as we find ourselves constantly reminding students to keep their masks on. We struggle to keep them engaged and to teach. One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.

Also, do interviewers still appreciate a hand written thank you for the interview?
