Teachers, how long do you think it would take you to get back into the groove of teaching once all students return to the classroom?

Just a few days, the problem this year is going to be all the in and out of kids all year.

Same 😐

We aren’t returning to the classroom unless there is a fantastic turn around because everyone is wearing their masks, or a nationwide walkout/sick out.

The only blessings we have our actual jobs. Kids are suffering because Betsy Devos can’t get off her golden toilet and help public schools.

I feel like I haven't been in my classroom for years! but it's just like riding a bike.

Even if we’re back in the classroom, it will be so strange! So much of my teaching is small groups and partners, which definitely can’t be done the same way while social distancing. I use proximity to keep kids on task too, tapping reading pages or behavior visuals to redirect students and watching over their shoulder to see if they’re tracking words properly and to coach them as needed. How do I do that from 6 ft away?

It will take us at least 2-3 weeks to learn procedures and routines. Then, my district is planning on going face to face by the end of September. Hybrid to start with. It's going to be difficult to teach everyone that they can't touch everything and everyone, and that everyone has their own supplies. I feel like by the time the kids get hybrid down, there will be a change, which means starting over again. Yipee!

I agree!! By the time you get the students to understand and adhere to the all of the new protocols the school year will be over!!The 5th of Neveruary sounds feasible. 😳 I will do my best always!

Districts around our state seem to be returning to school differently. I heard one is returning to children in the classrooms full time, some full time remote and several are planning a hybrid. I want to return safely, but worry about the ire that seems to be rising.

For me after 25 years of teaching, I think it will be like riding a bike. But we are starting fully remote for 9 weeks and when we do go back it may be in phases so it might feel like I am having multiple first days of school. Deja Vu

I’ve been moved to a new site with a new set of kids I haven’t worked with before, so maybe 2 weeks. Adding in all the different service providers is a different story. If we start online, I have time to organize how I want things structured and just teach the kids my program.

It won't take long for me, but I will have to work on routines for the first 2 weeks back in the classroom in order to keep behaviors to a minimum.

I don’t know if I will get back into the “swing of things” our plan is to go back based on our local county numbers. We can jump from full classes to hybrid to online, so I can’t see myself getting “comfortable”

Does anyone remember using Philosophical Chairs as a strategy in the classroom? You know, the one where we teach kids to make a claim based on the evidence they've gathered, then express it in a respectful manner, followed by hearing what the other side has to say, listening with ears open to the facts presented and being prepared to change their mind should they hear compelling evidence to do so? I certainly hope they cling to that rather than mimicking the actions of their predecessors. 🤦‍♀️

What is the job description of a teacher? At what point should we set boundaries regarding what we are being asked to do in the classroom on a psycho-social level? Teachers should be empathetic, stern, and kind, but at what point does that cross the line into therapy? Is it the teachers turn to push back regarding our job descriptions?

Hi Fishes, I got a call from a TCS manager last week and he interviewed me saying he received my CV from an external source. He shared his tcs email id, asked me to make minor modifications in the CV and then there will be a client interview. He said he will get back to me. I reached out to him 2 days later and he informed they were evaluating my eligibility with TCS. It has been 4 days since that and I have not heard from them. What does this actually mean? TIA.
