Confession… had an engagement with a married man who was in an “open relationship”. It was explained to me that they each had their own partners. As a sign of trust, I was invited to join a group chat with the wife. She seemed cool and everything was fine until I was asked if I was interested in her. Hindsight - he lied to me and her, letting her believe I was interested in the two of them together. Why are some men such dicks…. I made it clear from the beginning it was just a friend thing.

Hey friends,
I have no experience in copywriting or advertising but I have an interest in becoming a copywriter. I’ve been working to make this move for about six months, which included a few summer classes in graphic design (mostly Adobe CC) and a lot of reading in my down time. I cannot afford portfolio school right now. Would it be beneficial for me to start a blog at least to show I am capable of writing? Thank you!

In the past 6 years, I was promoted twice, from P3 to P4, then a few years later, from P4 to P5. However, I found out that my salary is still within the P3 band (actually 10k below max P3 range). This is not knowledge typically shared with employees. How can I use this knowledge to my advantage during my annual performance review in order to get a higher salary?

Preschool teachers!! Next week is our last week for GSRP what do you guys do for your end-of-the-year celebration? 


Hello everyone long time ECE teacher. 20 something years.

I’m Kim E. I work in public school grant funded preschool for 4 year olds in Michigan, and I also own a private preschool program for 3 and 4 year olds. This is my 18th year teaching.


Hello all! Let’s get to know each other! I’m Sarah D. I’ve worked in education for 11 years. I received my Bachelors Degree in ECE in 2017. Currently teach Two Year olds at a private preschool ❤️.


Hey everyone! I just came out with a free guide to online learning for early childhood teachers. Let me know if you’d be interested. Happy to send it your way! Sending you positive and healthy vibes!


Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing. We struggle as we find ourselves constantly reminding students to keep their masks on. We struggle to keep them engaged and to teach. One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.

I burst into tears Friday as I said goodbye to the best TA ever! She is now a kindergarten teacher in another district. It took me an hour to get over it and I know the other teachers and admin thought I was crazy. Change happens. But when there are no subs available and no one has an answer for Monday….what will I do? 18 students are 10 to many for me to teach by myself. And when I ask, they say there is someone, just not sure when the sub can start. Thanks for letting me vent!


Hi! I am Rustina and I teach 3 to 5 year olds in an inclusive Title 1 PreK program in NC. I have my masters from UNC CH in early intervention and family support. I love STEM and am a Global teacher


I'm Becky and I teach in a play-based public school preschool in Minnesota. This is my 24th year, all in 0-5 and parent ed!

I am an elementary school teacher. My oldest son is feeling drawn to ECE. He loves children, loves to help in vacation bible school, wants to work directly with people to help them. Thoughts?


Hi! I taught State-funded PreK in Georgia for 4 years and I am now on my 2nd year of Kinder. I also taught at a private preschool for 4 years before becoming full time in college. Love birth to 5!

I teach PreK in a public school. Our state allows PreK programs to nap without masks if proper ventilation is provided. I have 16 children, a minimum of 3 feet apart, no masks, with two LOUD air filters, two tiny windows open, the outside and hall door open, at average in 72-76 degrees. What is your childcare classroom doing for rest time?


I was recently offered a Zoom interview. The school had 10 interview slots for me to choose from. Three were one day this week and the rest are next week. I chose the first time slot available. Should I have waited until one of the last slots so I was fresher on their mind when choosing a candidate? I am just sitting here stressing out until I here something. Also, do interviewers still appreciate a hand written thank you for the interview?

I have a para/assistant teacher that just wants to argue over everything. “You’re the teacher, why do I have to assess the children during break out rooms?” We have 8 kids, and I am only asking her to do 3! The other para is doing 3 and I and doing 2 with IEPs!!! How am I supposed to handle this in a professional manner virtually? Plus she is frustrated b/c o can’t explain everything. I keep telling her it’s all new to me too. Grace is not a word in her vocab. And I am feeling graceless.


How is your district implementing school reentry? How are you setting up your classrooms to meeting social distancing while still allowing for free play?

Hey EC teachers! Anyone willing to get on a market research call with me? I promise, no pitch!! Just want to ask a few questions :)

I’m Elizabeth and I’m in Las Vegas. I’ve been teaching ECSE for 14 years and it’s my 18th year teaching (i taught resource for 4 years). I love my littles! Who has taught the toddler crowd?
