Is anyone else teaching from a trailer this year? They are building a bigger school, so I hope to have a regular classroom next year.

My entire school is portables

I like it because no one comes to find me unless they really need me

Nope, but I remember those days. I had to teach from a trailer for 2 years (that's been a good 6 years ago now). I don't miss those days! 😂

I started in one. We had our issues but it was great. No one came unless they really needed something.

Yes I’m currently in a portable

I loved my portable. It had air

I’m in a portable. I love it and hate it. I live not being bothered by admin. I hate not being close to a restroom. I hate not seeing another adult all day. I hate feeling like I’m not part of the campus. I live setting my own temperature.

Totally understand that. Mine was not on alarm system. We could go and come with no worries.

Heck at my last school the trailers were nicer than the main building! About 20 years newer and you can actually control the thermostat

Am I the only teacher who doesn’t have family or friends willing to help with their classroom? I’ve moved rooms every year for the last 5 years and I have a large family and lot of friends, but no one is ever willing to help. I told my mom today that it really hurts my feelings, as she declined my request to help as she simultaneously asked ME to help do something for my sister’s house. I explained I’m always there when people need me, but I feel let down when I’m in need. Anyone else?

We're returning to the classroom! I haven't taught live, in a classroom, since Friday, March 13, 2020. Ack! This is also my first full year as a teacher. I have four of my students and 3 students from the younger class coming to my hybrid class for three hours M, T, Th, F, starting this Thursday. Any ideas? Tips? Rules? I have lots of ideas, but figured I should pick the experts' brains, rather than freaking out and spinning my wheels. I'm feeling very high anxiety today. Thanks!

At a former company, they let you expense $20 for working 10+ hours in a day, but you could never use it because it would always be rejected. Recently started at a new firm, and I had a rough week last week (two 14+ hour days). New firm has a similar policy, so I asked. Was told not to submit the $20 reimbursements. Just as I was about to get frustrated, he told me I should get dinner for my wife and me. Only rule was to keep it under $100. Don't like working 14 hour days, but this was nice.
