Just heard that my district will have classroom and live-recording learning. I’m thankful because I now can feed my family, my newborn and a recent-sponsored wife! I’m scared because I’m almost 50 and I’m afraid I might catch the virus and die leaving behind my 1 month baby and a wife who is not legal in the state yet! The USCIS or Trump’s dept. thinks she’s not good enough to be in the US!! We applied for green card and SS card since August 2019!
Hi I am a new teacher intern hired yesterday. I will be teaching second grade. School reopens on Aug 17. I do not have my own materials. I do not know what materials are there in my classroom. What should I buy? I will be talking to the Principal on Monday to find out more. I am very excited and nervous at the same time. Any tips and suggestions for me would be helpful.
Fellow Fish, my SO is a special education teacher with 5 YOE and a master’s degree looking to move out of the classroom and into a new career. If anyone has experience with this; what sort of jobs should she be looking at? Even better, if anyone is hiring or knows of roles hiring former teachers please let me know. Thanks all for the help, ‘preciate ya.
Does anyone have a good reading and reading response lesson for an LLD classroom? I have a demo lesson and special education is new to me. Thanks!
I need to talk with a teacher about inappropriate behavior some parents are complaining that she has in the classroom. How do I approach this without accusing her or making her feel ambushed?
Hi everyone!!! Last year I put together a list of classrooms to exchange valentines with! We mailed 1 valentine to each class and included a picture if we could, and a few things about where we live and things we do!
I currently have 13 classes signed up! The more the merrier!!
We have classes CA, WI, PA, KS, TX, RI, MI, Canada, New Zealand.
I have a form to fill out if you are interested! I will email everyone the list probably at the end of the week if not sooner!
I was recommended by my principal to apply for an LTSE position. This will be my 4th year as a special education resource teacher. I know the position can be tough. What was the transition like for those who have become LTSEs? Is the pay any different? Do you miss the classroom? I’d like to hear the good and bad.

What novels do you use in your ELA classrooms? I am curious to see what everyone else is using !
Split classes take away joy! We have 6-7 classes at each grade level and they split 1-2 into the remaining 5 so we can have a 5 day schedule. Big classes plus the classroom culture homeroom teachers work so hard to achieve are ruined. Advice? (Plus we are told to "not be negative" by admin.)
Always a student. This helps me relate to my own. Mistakes. Confusion. Oopsies like giving the wrong answer when we KNOW it. Learning keeps me off any high horse because sure as the world I’d otherwise get knocked down. We are all students in our classrooms. An indirect bonus is that the connection we make by remembering what it’s like to be a student helps us manage the class better. We relate. We admit. We connect.
Organization is critical for classroom management. Try assembling units into Google Slides with links to ppts, activities, etc. Color code them according to the rainbow: Unit 1 red, Unit 2 orange etc. It takes a minute at first but the payoff is a one click upload for next year! PS I use the same color code system with felt tip pens to grade my classes: 1st hr red, 2nd hr orange etc.
Hi everyone! I wanted to share an awesome resource. Yoga Foster offers teachers lesson plans on how to use yoga and mindful movement in your classroom. You can also apply for grants for yoga mats!

Does EXL sponsor higher education?
If yes, does anyone have any idea about the universities with which EXL has tie-ups?
Headed to SF for a week in April with family. We agreed on a “do your own thing” day and I want to go hiking. Unfortunately the 4hr drive from SF to Yosemite/Sierra/etc is too much for one day. 1/2

SALERY OF BIOMEDICAL TECHNICIAN
Has anyone taken FMLA for whatever reason and can share what the expectation is regarding communication with work while you’re out? Is everything just via HR? Do I need to check my work email? Is it breaking some kind of rule if my boss is texting or calling me about work? Google hasn’t been super helpful.

We are looking to revamp our curriculum and curriculum maps. We currently teach earth science in 6th grade, life science in 7th grade, and physical science in 8th grade. We are looking at possibly integrating all three into each grade level. What do you teach at each grade level?
I was told today that too many of my students were failing and to make it so over half of them are passing by the end of the year. Have you had to do this? What did you do?
I'm about to start teaching 8th grade "Family Life" aka sex ed. We do this for the last 3 weeks of school, before we send them off to high school. Any good tips for helping with immature boys?
Hello. 7th grade Science teachers!

Remote Instruction is what we get for all the times we thought to ourselves pre-pandemic, "I wish I could sit down for 2 minutes."
I’m kind of stuck what to do. The principal at my school is very intimidating, confrontational, and not pleasant to work for. I love teaching but feel like I have to walk on egg shells around him.
How does one deal with hygiene? Some of these students (especially after PE) really need to hit the deodorant aisle!
Good morning !! My students have to take a virtual reality field trip for their summer program and our topic is related to bridges and structures. Does anybody know any online platform through which public can view high resolution pictures and videos related to the topic.
Please reply when you get a chance .
Happy Friday Everyone! How is school culture at your school this time of year?

If you have students that know the content well, you could add content crusher as a job to help other students.
I have jobs for students; passing out and collecting papers, supplies, changing the information on the board (helps with their writing skills), passing out and putting up chromebooks, feeding the fish, cleaning the fish bowl. My students enjoy volunteering to sweep the floor. This teaches them employability skills.
Middle Schoolers love to help!
So, not jobs inside of groups, then? Researcher - every few days a kid tacles a question from the question board. Librarian - my reading & reference shelves get intermingled.
If you use chromebooks or the like you could have a "tech pro" or two per period. Someone to collect/ pass back papers. If you use supply boxes a student or 2 could replenish/ stock them, light cleaning, pencil sharpener, someone per period who can help absent students with work or labs.
What do you all use as "payment"? I have a token economy so I use my fake money but would like to offer the kids other choices. Thank you!
ohhh... I just like the sound of that. Explain please!
Awesome idea!! Love it!
Quality assurance- they oversee the measurements/procedures/protocol and make sure they are accurate, make sure all the constants are constant and there is only 1 variable.
