Does anyone have suggestions, course outlines, or an online classroom/website I could review?
I have tons of 'resources' but I'm not entirely sure where to begin.

Many thanks!

I am a middle school social studies teacher and my husband is a high school art teacher. He has been an art teacher for a very long time and he’s not super proficient with Google classroom but I am. I have been helping him with lesson online resources & creating hyper docs for the lessons. He is struggling with the students not having a lot of supplies at home and how to have them create multiple day art pieces.  he teaches at a low income area, how is everyone handling supplies to students?

Hi y’all,
I am resigning from my position. I don’t have a job secured yet, but I have a couple interviews lined up. I’m wondering if I should tell my admin tomorrow (before going on break) or wait until I have a job secured.
FYI: I found one document saying I need to give a 30 day notice and the employee handbook says 2 weeks to be in “good standing”.
Any advice would be helpful.

So I’m planning on leaving my position before school starts, but the application and interview process has been slow. At this point I’m afraid I won’t find a job until late July. Should I let my school now and let them post my job as an anticipated position? I’d hate for them to have to find someone last minute, but I also want to keep that school as a fall back just in case. Unfortunately, it’s a terrible position and there has not been a lot of interest in it in the past.

I feel similarly about a music teacher at a different school in my district, who is not an administrator, but has decided to make himself one.

I have no idea how his students deal with it.

Greetings, heroic educators!
I am a conductor hoping to start a chorus that will focus on works by wonderful but often-neglected composers, so I thought some fellow music teachers might be interested. If you like to sing and are up for a challenge, I'd love to have you!
Although we will be rehearsing virtually to start with, of course, I hope someday we can get together in person; hence, I'm mainly looking for singers in the northeast NJ/NYC area. Please let me know if you are interested!

Anyone who knows you will be returning F2F: have your administratirs said what band/chorus classes can or cannot do when you return? I was told today at my school, there will be NO singing or playing instruments INSIDE of the building, and we're supposed to come up with ways to make that work.

My school has seen combinations of f2f, hybrid, and remote teaching/learning throughout the first half of the school year. After the MLK holiday, our district is returning to traditional f2f teaching 100%. I have 4 band classes (1 beginning, 2 intermediate, & 1 advanced), and as far as content pacing is concerned, we’re 1 9-week grading period behind. Is it a far fetched goal to get my students where they need to be by the end of the school year? How would you handle a situation like this?
