So I teach Science and PE as well as do SPED. I’m on a sub credential while I finish up a couple of classes. WASC is saying that I am doing too much to provide rigor. I find that unjust and unfair. They spent all of 5 minutes in my classroom. I’m a great teacher and have been extremely flexible. Now I’m dinged for it?

Typical. It sounds like they just look at your resume and determine that one person can't possibly do multiple things well. Are there other teachers doing similar amounts of work in your school that can back you up?

What...what does that even MEAN? Did they say exactly what they meant by doing 'too much'?

Of course!!! You can’t do too little because we need to help the children but oh don’t do too much because you have to have time for self care. All the mixed messages are driving me nuts this year. Could someone who actually knows anything about education take charge and get rid of all the idiot admins out there????

Hello,
I teach 4th grade at a Christian school. I have been teaching for over 30 years but I have been at this school for 2 years. Since I have been working at this school it seems like everything I do in my classroom it's something wrong with it according to my supervisor. Recently, I was told that I am not getting a new contract for the new school year. I have to find a new school. I was told that I am not a good fit for the school.

Good Evening My Fellow Christian Educators! I realize it is going to be challenging for me this year...with so many of my students performing below grade level expectations in ELA and MATH and also ensuring that all students follow the COVID Guidelines in the classroom. I still feel hopeful that God will bless me with the knowledge on how to effectively impact each one of those kids. Let's remember to keep all educators lifted in prayer this year.
Have a wonderful school year!!
God Bless All❤️
