The answer is an emphatic NO. In fact, it will only exacerbate the already crisis-level staffing shortage. But yes....keep testing...


These standardized test really grind my gears. It's the biggest waste of money, time, and effort


Dah! 🥸

OMG this is too real. Its sad really.

Only focus on what's on the test smh *rolls eyes*

Nope kid, there is absolutely NO proof because the test will indeed not improve the school in any way

Not only will they fir the teacher but if you score badly, we will hold it against you. that you are not a good test taker and we will rank your school very low so that it doesn't get funding.

I wish this is just an exaggeration. Bot goodness, this happens in real life too. Sad.

I gave the 3 rounds of interview for Amazon India  SDE fresh grad role.

1st and 2nd rounds were very smooth and interviewers were highly impressed.

In the 3rd round, I solved the question using 1 approach which is most optimal but interviewer asked me to solve via recursion and I couldn't do till end.

Do I have chance of moving forward?

I am a registered nurse with over 10 years experience in various areas, including ER. I’m transitioning to L&D. I originally sent a resume to a post w/$10k sign-on. Before giving an offer, they sent a link stating I had to complete an app. The link showed a $20k sign-on bonus. Now the offer letter arrives with $10k. I’m not being greedy but could def use the extra as I am taking a pay cut for the position. Should I press for the $20k or just sign as is?
Thanks for all input

Does anyone find themselves teaching live to black screens? it started with one now almost all if not all of my students are turning off their cameras. Do I just have to get used to this? I'd much rather teach to eye contact to know I'm not just talking to myself! Is it just me?


Since I started teaching writing, I started looking for a way students can write on their phone. I found that Microsoft Word Online, and Google Forms work best. They write on their phone. I get it digitally. No papers.

Attention teachers who have kids at home: what do your offspring think of distance learning? i'm asking bc i don't have my own kids so i'm wondering what it's like to be on the other side...


We were told recently that as more kids return to school there are no social distancing rules but that the kids are to wear their masks at all times. So I don’t think that this is isolated to just my campus.


I posted this in the Anti-Racist bowl, but this bears repeating for the general public. It is ABSOLUTELY our JOBS to teach kids when there is some form of bias afoot. As an English teacher, this is the crap I am all over. To wit: Each of these posts, a mere TWO DAYS APART, was in reference to players celebrating on the field. One was a 21-year-old white player, the other a 17-year-old Dominican Republic player. I'll let you guess which is about which. And they say, “implicit bias is a myth!” 🤨

I was called upon to read aloud from this book "Allegedly", which has been given rave reviews, during a break between lessons in a 7th grade math class. I'm a former Marine and correctional officer so blushing isn't a thing for me. I read it aloud.
I welcome all opinions and am especially interested in views in support of this novel, which would not have been my choice.

How is it possible that I still have parents who ask me about their child's grades and don't know where to find them. It's all online now!


I received this message from a digruntled colleague... “I have to be honest and say I think you are doing too much, we are only simple teachers and I think you are going well above of what is expected! This is putting the rest of us under enomous pressure !!” We are all being pushed to the brink during these distance teaching times. I understand that we all do things differently, but is a message like this okay? I feel like I am being bullied for just doing my best for the pupils!

Was given a copy of my first evaluation from administration (this is my fourth year working for the school district). Admin didn't know that I went to central office the spring semester of my second year to get a copy of that eval.
When looking at both evals, I found that Admin changed some things after I got my copy which lowered my overall score. Went to my union rep about it, and now I have a conference with my principal. Did I do the right thing, or should I have just let it be?
