Yep, I hate the extra large groups too! Sorry I don't really have advice I just cope.

I found it was more effective to simplify my projects and goals with an overly-packed schedule, to not overly stress. If administration complained to ME, I said "I'm doing the best I can under the circumstances", and that shut them up.

Ugh I remember they did that one year with kinders. They split one class between 3. Imagine their excitement each day to see the other class (rowdy) and coming from 2 different management styles.

We as teachers are not supposed to tell our students what to think, we are supposed to teach our students how to think. To do this, we need to try our best to keep our political opinions and our personal thoughts on issues out of the classroom.

Since turning 25 my family is ON me to think about marriage. I’ve always struggled with the concept of marriage and truly always just dated for fun, with no end goal in mind. I am south asian and have somehow always dated non-south Asian men, but my culture is really important to me. I feel I have this idea that marriage is going to take away my independence and it’s never really appealed to me. How did you shift your perspective, if so? I am feeling pressured to start dating more seriously.

Recently, as you probably know, Dr. Seuss's estate chose to stop printing a few of his older books that had offensive racial stereotypes.

Full disclosure: I'm white. But I'm still enraged by all this. You?
