Is your Christmas decor still up? I got rid of the holiday decor in my classroom to usher in a fresh start, but still clinging to the holiday joy at home!

Oh yes - usually take it down around spring break in April! This year who knows because my lit up tree brings me joy and I know for sure my husband doesn’t have the first clue as to how to take them down and where to put them LOL

God no! I only put up outside lights this year because we traveled to see our oldest son out of state. We have all agreed that it was the best Christmas ever since we didn’t have to deal with the tree nonsense.

No Christmas left in my classroom, but my house is very festive. I just can’t bear to take it down yet.

We had to take everything down the last day of school before the break.

Is there anyone that is teaching from home and your students have returned to school? How did you get permission to do that and how does that work with kids in the classroom? I am guessing there has to be an adult in the room while the students are in there but is there another teacher during their planning or do you have to get a sub? Our reentry has been delayed and I am working with HR to try and stay home while students aren’t there but it looks like I’m going to have to take some Parental Leave once students do return because there is not a plan otherwise.

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?
