Just wondering if it gets better or am I just in an odd situation

Kind of curious, how many of you have any male secretaries in your schools?
I have taught in four different buildings in my career, some had multiple secretaries. Never had a male secretary.
A child refused to move and was about to knock a shelf over. I picked her up, and as I did so, she dead weighted (dropped) causing me to poke her in the underarm by accident. You would have thought it the end of the world. The rest of the day she said she was scared of me. Then would ask for something (play dough, my lunch, stickers). When I told her no, she would cry and say she was scared of me and she wanted her mom. (The reason same reason she was upset to start with!).How to tell Mom?
What free resources for science do you use? Preferably for middle school, but I will take anything that is useful. Thanks!

Found out some of my coworkers get paid significantly more than I do, but have little or none of the credentials and experience I have. How do I go about bringing this up to HR?
Our 6th grade schedule changed this year & our 45 min Flex period is now first thing in the morning. Students who have signed up for instrumental and chorus are pulled that block but it’s supposed to be “intervention” for the others. We rotate classes so I thought of treating it like homeroom, but I’m having trouble trying to think of how to best make use of that block. Any suggestions?
Do you treat your fav students better than the others?
Incentive ideas needed!
I’m in charge of our school incentive program for this upcoming year to keep the kids into virtual learning. We are distance learning until at least October. I can not think of incentives for distance learning! Also, does anyone have a good platform for monitoring PBIS type behaviors? I know about Class Dojo, but know there are others....
After yesterday, this is my thought: I need to check with my students mentally first, the lesson can wait or be done tomorrow. Oxford High School is 21 miles from my school.
As we head toward 2022, please keep this in mind for your school/personal life, and remember that you owe it to yourself before anyone else. 🕊
Looking for supplemental income? If you're not already burned out from teaching, you could teach ESL online to kids in China! $20-26/hr, flex schedule, early mornings, evenings, weekends.

I think it’s an easy copout for a failed system. Sure it made things harder, but Covid hit over two years ago. If they haven’t grown in that time period, that is on the world they live in and it’s flaws, not the pandemic. I’ve noticed no difference in my sophomore groups the past 2 years than the sophomore groups I had 3-7 years ago.
I agree. I am tired of the COVID excuses when it’s the same as it was before COVID.
Naw, but delayed a bit since then, yeap.
Over 3 years, most matured less than 1 year.
I mean, I think there are middle aged adults who regressed dramatically within a few weeks of Covid hitting
We have middle schoolers with stuffed animals and pacifiers. They talk in baby voices and screech when they are excited. That’s not pandemic, that’s parents allowing it
They’re adjusting. They get anxious. Is it disrupting their learning? Or no comment at all
Many kids parented themselves during that period. Others worked full time to help their family and were responsible for their younger siblings. Still other have parents who are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol. Add social media stress to that, and we have some really anxious, stressed-out kids who can’t deal.
No. Students need adults that are actively making sure that they are moving forward with their education and developing necessary life skills. I am fed up with the academic coordinators, parents and administrators protecting capable students from growing up.
Delayed, not stuck. However, a big part of the problem is that many parents didn’t parent during the pandemic. Kids’ screen time increased exponentially. Once we returned, it became the teachers’ problem to somehow get them to be fully functioning again. Nope, sorry. I’m raising my own kids. These parents with the ill behaved and unsocialized children need to do the same.
Absolutely! Responsive parents who support their children’s physical/mental well-being and their education have kids who are doing pretty well despite the disruption of the pandemic. And some of these are single parents who are doing it all on their own and/or people who have felt the financial impacts of inflation, take care of elderly parents, or have their own health issues. Their own lives are far from perfect, yet they still care about rearing their child to become a functional human being and strive to work WITH us, rather than bad mouth us.
Those who have infantilized or enabled their kids have sent them the message that they are simply too inept, incapable, or damaged, and it’s been so disastrous to their kids developing perseverance and self-agency. What is really sad is that it is also making it more difficult for those kids with diagnosed disabilities to get enough help because there just aren’t enough services to go around anymore ($$$ and staff), and many professionals in our schools have become extremely jaded and cynical. Fatigue compassion and burnout is definitely an issue!
My 2nd graders behave like end of year Kindy. Makes sense. They were in Kindy when it was either In Person or Virrtual. 1st grade was a cluster f for them.
I haven't noticed it with our older students, but the current freshmen and sophomores seem to be about a year behind in their maturity levels.
The theory regarding their maturity is false in my view, however I do think the students who went 100% virtual made hardly any gains academically during the pandemic and are a year behind.
All students are at least 2 years behind
I don’t agree. I think overall students are doing well even after Covid. The bigger issue I see is the use of social media.
I agree with the negative impacts of social media, and it’s affecting everyone. The problems in education have many variables. Schools are a microcosm of an ailing society that has had multiple crises, including Covid. It does remind me of this quotation:
“To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order; we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right.”
Yes. The pandemic altered our brain chemistry. I also noticed that students had difficulty with focus and attention after they returned to the in-person classroom.
The little ones really missed out on socialization, and got too used to being on their iPads!
Sounds about right
Delayed due to shutting things down and forcing them to stay home away from peers. I have many students though who are back to where they should be. Grit means a lot.
I agree and too annoyed to elaborate.
In my opinion, this generation of students is so mature. They want to talk about world topics and current events. I never seen students car about stuff like this before
Maybe high school. Not elementary. The ones in my school are a year to a year & a half behind in maturity & education. Virtual was the worst thing to do to these kids. Completely unnecessary.
I somehow agree. The challenges of returning from remote learning combined with responding to the stress of adults during a national crisis have led some children to struggle with their emotions and with social routines at school.
I think there are also kids and adults affected by long COVID, which we do not know a lot about.
Because we don't know a lot about it, and in some arenas might not be motivated to learn a lot about it, knowing how it could impact learning, behavior, and all sorts of things is difficult to say
I teach 5th graders. They are definitely missing 3rd grade math and reading skills. It stands to my reason that they are missing a skill set they would have gained in 3rd grade that would allow them to be more “school ready”.
