Anyone here adopt a puppy during the infertility struggle? Husband and I considering it to have something positive throughout this situation and thinking the extra companionship would be helpful. I work from home. Husband has had many family dogs and lots of experience with it, I’ve had a family cat before. But not sure if it’s actually a good idea - wondering if it would truly help make us feel better and keep our minds off of the struggles or if it would just add extra stress. Thoughts?
Just put in my two weeks notice to take a job with a 30% pay bump and much better future prospects. But I’ve been at my current job for almost my entire professional career and I’m freaking out. I should be happy but my stomach is churning and I keep thinking of absolute worst case scenario stuff. Anyone else feel that way when they left a job?

So my district is making teachers burn sick days after receiving the vaccine and having a reaction to it. They state we made the choice to get it so if we have a reaction and have to be out it is on us....

Has anyone heard of Doug reeves? Just curious a district in my area is having him speak at a virtual meeting coming up on ways to improve D and F grades.He has a sketchy past from being in jail for embezzling money for an organization and years ago he was accused of molesting a coworkers child then several years go by and he was acquitted. Regardless if he was acquitted or not why would a district hire this professional speaker to speak to a group of teachers?? How about someone with a cjeanrr
At my school there are buttons being passed out that say, “She/her, he/him they/them.” I have no problem with anyone wearing these buttons but I don’t like feeling pressure to wear one myself. No one is telling me to wear one but people talk about how inclusive it is to wear one and most staff do. I really don’t think I’m being transphobic by not wearing one but I just don’t want to wear one. What is your opinion on this?

Kind of curious, how many of you have any male secretaries in your schools?
I have taught in four different buildings in my career, some had multiple secretaries. Never had a male secretary.
I need some advice! I am a new teacher in a Behavior unit. I have a token Economy in my classroom and a leveled behavior system. Some of my kiddos are not responding to it. They are k-2 students.
Now SEL is under attack. We’ve entered into the world of the McCarthyism.
“Patriots" would claim they're just protecting children from deranged teachers openly endorsing suicide. Yes. They believe teachers are encouraging their students to commit suicide through SEL. Education First Alliance argues that SEL is anti-white, anti-Christian, and anti-American.

STUDENT MOTIVATION - Thursday March 31st 8:00pm EST
Are you struggling with motivating your students? Or are you doing things in your room that have kids SUPER INSPIRED? Either way come zoom with other teachers and talk about what you do in your classroom and learn from others!
A child refused to move and was about to knock a shelf over. I picked her up, and as I did so, she dead weighted (dropped) causing me to poke her in the underarm by accident. You would have thought it the end of the world. The rest of the day she said she was scared of me. Then would ask for something (play dough, my lunch, stickers). When I told her no, she would cry and say she was scared of me and she wanted her mom. (The reason same reason she was upset to start with!).How to tell Mom?
I see principals reaching out to each staff member just to check in. Some are even delivering flowers and handwritten cards.

Call OSHA and lodge a formal complaint. If you have truly followed all of the steps and gone through the chain of command, then they are the last resort.
Your work environment is also a learning environment. You should at the very least have breathable air.
Take pictures and talk to your union if you are a member. If you are not a member, I suggest you lawyer up because your health is most important. Also, see if you can transfer to another school.
That may happen in your district but not ours.
Call the health department and the news.
They replace brown ceiling tiles constantly but don't seem to ever fix the root cause. I feel fine over weekends, holidays, and summer... but once I walk in the building, I get headaches and a runny nose. I feel like there's not much I can do short of exposing the problem to the local press... which I'm worried could cost me my job.
The parents should file a lawsuit
If you have a union and your contract has language about a safe working environment, you can get something done. I'm not sure that fake Christian "union" would care because it's not about a "good news" club. LOL.
Call the health department.
Holy crap, in this era of respiratory illness, folks are still screwing around with mold?
If it were me I'd send samples out of pocket to a lab; and let the results guide my next move.
Call a local building inspector for free advice about risks and testing avenues.
I agree with the previous comments. If the school isn't taking it seriously, I would go above their heads and call the health departments.
I also saw one video las night about molds. What is happening? Is this a common occurrence now?
While you're at it, you may want to get a programable dehumidifier with an automated pump that siphons to a drain. Moreover bleach doesn't actually kill mold. What you need is a moldicide. Available in your local home centre.
Visibly-growing mold has been there awhile. I strongly suggest some fan action here - you may not be able to reduce the incoming moisture for this area with any speed, but you can increase the mobility of the air, which helps to speed evaporation.
The mold and mildew spray is a great way to remove and prevent smaller mold issues for areas with less than great air flow.
For worse jobs I actually rent a hot steam power washer to make quick work of the job.
It's insane to me how maintenance will argue with you that there is no mold when there is obviously mold growing. What's the problem with just fixing the problem before it gets out of hand?
I had a problem like this over the summer. I had to bring a fan and point it to the ceiling and keep mold and mildew spray in the classroom. I know it's horrible that we have to take care of situations like this on our own but that's what we have to do when the school doesn't care
