I’m a SPED teacher, & my principals ALWAYS seem to visit my room as soon as I give my student(s) a break from their work or when they’ve finished early everything I had planned. They RARELY come in when I’m actually in the middle of making progress on a lesson. It makes me feel like I have to be defensive & justify why the students aren’t working. Does this happen to anyone else?

Admin walking in at exactly the wrong time? Yes, this happens to me *all* the time. It's frustrating, but if they're reasonable, then they should be aware that this is the natural ebb and flow of a classroom - rigor can't happen all day every day free from breaks. It may sound silly, but maybe when you give these breaks you could write (in large letters) "BRAIN BREAK" on the board so they know when they come in that's what's going on. With the push for mental health as of late, this should be seen as a good thing. 😊

To all the post-9/11 veterans, it’s a somber day that unites us all in the reason we fought. It’s easy to forget - especially with the younger generation having 9/11 be a history lesson rather than something they lived through. The waters became muddy with two wars and politicians, but you all stepped up and did your duty. Thank you all for your service, it’s an honor whether we crossed paths or not.

I turned on “open to work” (but only casually browsing) on LinkedIn last night because I’ve had a god-awful week and am legitimately considering my options. Except I was immediately bombarded by calls and emails from recruiters. My office phone was blowing up this morning in the middle of trying to get a filing out the door… I’ve already turned it back off. Lesson learned LMAO

My confidence is very low today. I have a few difficult clients who have been disrupting meetings by trying to push current state and I’m trying to come in with different angles because I need to change quite a bit. One of the males who talks at me sent an email asking if I would like overview lessons of how this client works and that just made me feel like shit. I’m the only female on the team and when I ask my SM for help he says “this is your job” and I just need some uplifting. 😑

I don’t work then past 5pm or anything out of the ordinary for this time of the year. I am so grateful!

Vax question: my state is finally letting me get the vax. I am hoping to do it this weekend (J&J).

Will the J&J vax cause a false positive on my COVID test? I don’t think it will, as it is a viral vector vax and not a weakened version of the virus, but maybe there is someone on this app who knows the real answer.
