Germs lol literally I’ve always been obsessed with hand sanitizer and cleaning. If I touch a students work or materials I sanitize after. I wipe down my desks every couple weeks and spray Lysol once a week. I always just felt like it wasn’t quite clean enough cuz so many kids and germs. My first year I was lax with it and got sick legitimately 12 times in one school year. So I took it more seriously this year, good thing! Lol

Students always tell me I am a germaphobe, to which I always replied, "No, teenagers are disgusting."

One thing? Ha! Taking attendance Lunch/hall duty School business absences Calls from the front office or counselors that try to take kids out of class Picking up trash at the end of the day because teenagers are inconsiderate of others Fire drills Worrying about how not ready for an active shooter my campus is Waiting to use a broken copier The smell of teenagers whose parents don't teach/enforce hygiene I can keep going...

good point. the accountability is put more on the students and their parents (for once). it definitely makes our jobs easier... but are they learning? maybe they're learning how to be more independent.

I am a California teacher looking to relocate. My son is pushing for Boerne. I have spent most of my life in small private Christian schools and loved it! When I moved to public school the large class sizes and trauma/sped students filling my classroom burned me out. I moved to homeschool this year (with my same district) and love it!!! I am curious about teaching in Texas. Class sizes, special ed, private school, etc. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

One of my Kinders refuses to go to the bathroom at school. I have a bathroom in my classroom and there is a bathroom at the playground. He will hold it until he wets his pants. I have tried everything that I know of to get him to use the bathroom. I’ve talked with my principal and the school counselors and have tried everything that they have come up with. Nothing is working. Mom and dad both say that this is the only place he does this at. He will go just fine outside of school. Suggestions?
