Who here thinks that schools should stay on remote learning for the entire 2020-2021 school year? I myself think it’s pointless to return to the classroom when the school year is half way through. Schools should remain closed until a vaccine is readily available. I say this not only as a teacher, but as a parent myself

Our school uses Foss Kits for Science and I was told when students return, we will need to sanitize all items before and after each use. This doesn’t seem possible in a middle school setting where each period has a 4 minute break and 25 students in each period. What do you do in your classroom to minimize the amount of work needed to clean and sanitize items. I don’t want to short change the students’ hands-on experiences.

So! As many of you begin to prepare for a return to school, I prepare to exit the classroom with Friday being my last teacher workday as I switch careers. I guess I wanted to say that I wish you all well and the best of luck. I hope mental health becomes a focus going forward. I hope that teachers can be at the center of decisions instead of everything always being for the students. Martyrdom should not be expectation and it is my hope that you all get held to reasonable standards. You matter

I think many would agree the US public education (K-12) system does not meet the expectations we have as a nation. But in speaking with my friends who are teachers, I hear that teachers frequently put in as much work outside the classroom as they do for instruction, far more than the 1.5 hr per day allocated for planning. What if teachers only worked the hours they were contractually obligated to? What do you think the state of our nation would be?
