In a science middle school classroom, aside from materials manager, secretary, botanist & cleanup... can you think of any other jobs for students?
I need to talk with a teacher about inappropriate behavior some parents are complaining that she has in the classroom. How do I approach this without accusing her or making her feel ambushed?
Our first meet up went so well! Join us for our next one!
STUDENT MOTIVATION - Thursday March 31st 8:00pm EST
Are you struggling with motivating your students? Or are you doing things in your room that have kids SUPER INSPIRED? Either way come zoom with other teachers and talk about what you do in your classroom and learn from others!
I'm currently a middle school social studies teacher (this is my 10th year of teaching) and formerly worked as a home health care manager at our local area agency on aging (4.5 years) and as a behavioral modification counselor for adjudicated teens in a residential behavioral modification program (5 years). I had a tutoring business for 1.5 years as well. I'm looking to transition away from the classroom if anyone has any jobs or job leads I might be qualified for, please let me know. Thank you!
anyone know how to link Google classroom and PowerSchool together? our small school cannot afford Unified Classroom
Has anyone incorporated responsive classroom into their school-wide PBIS framework? If so, what are some things you did that have worked really well?
Organization is critical for classroom management. Try assembling units into Google Slides with links to ppts, activities, etc. Color code them according to the rainbow: Unit 1 red, Unit 2 orange etc. It takes a minute at first but the payoff is a one click upload for next year! PS I use the same color code system with felt tip pens to grade my classes: 1st hr red, 2nd hr orange etc.

Drop your classroom management ideas here. For my school it sure is nice to have a principal who supports a no phone policy.
I am working on putting a PD session together for new teachers about using tech in the classroom. What tools/skills do new teachers need to know when they get started (other than learning their school's grading/attendance platform)?

Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing. We struggle as we find ourselves constantly reminding students to keep their masks on. We struggle to keep them engaged and to teach. One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.
Does anyone use Fundations in 1st grade? We are piloting it in our district as a tier 1 for all kids as our daily phonics program. Trying to figure out how to set up classroom w/ all individual tools?
I’m student teaching and I’m completely stressed out. I’ve been in an elementary classroom as a TA, but this is way different.
I am trying to build my quiet area in my classroom. I am having a hard time finding things that I feel are appropriate for this area during this pandemic. Does anyone have any suggestions? Please and thanks!!! :)

Can we create a culture that recognizes that consuming alcohol results in your body producing acetaldehyde which is a known carcinogen? Not saying that people should not be drinking, but there should be more education about it. Just like how every smoker is aware of what it does to your health. People generally know that drinking heavily isn’t good for you, but most people I come across don’t realize that your body produces carcinogen while processing alcohol.
What’s your agency’s unique take on the “The Big Idea” (and don’t say “The Big Idea” unless you’re Ogilvy). Interested to see the latest thinking from agencies putting their mark on it, expressing a unique creative POV.

I have a Rollover and SEP IRA alongside my current 401k.
My Roth account has the lowest balance because historically I've taken the tax deduction for pre tax contributions to the SEP and Rollover.
I understand if I contribute the money to Rollover and then backdoor to Roth, I will pay tax pro-rata based on the contribution percentage of total Rollover/SEP account balance (majority tax on funds that have grown).
Q: Can I open another traditional IRA solely for the purpose of the backdoor?

Everyone talks about the benefit of a school’s network. What is that benefit? Will alumni just give you automatic interviews when applying/increased odds of a job offer? Are they more likely to fund your company if you are in a startup?

Kinda amazed how job market froze so quickly. I remember seeing B4 audit seniors getting into B4 FDD so easy till like 9 months ago. And then it was still easy to get into MM and now it's hard to get anywhere. You gotta seize the opportunity when you see it.

How are you teaching middle or high school chorus in the fully virtual realm? I’m looking for new ideas and techniques. I hate that my choirs can only sing on Zoom with everyone muted...that’s the opposite of choral singing :-(
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.
Hello! My fellow educators! Just wanted to announce an amazing opportunity for our students, teachers and families during this time. Check out Global Youth Education Week! https://www.smore.com/hqm58
So I got moved to the art room. The art teacher gave me permission to use her supplies since a he isn't teaching art. So today I used some of the supplies. Next thing I know I get an email from her with the principal and vice principal chewing me out about using her stuff. Even though she said it was OK. I plan on replacing what I used, which was just a few beads to make Ganzas. How do you respond?
Someone once wrote of William Bligh, "God knows I never had any malice in my heart until I met this detestable brute."
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.
His particular talent is beating around the bush for hours without ever quite revealing what he wants you to do.
I have no idea how his students deal with it.
Anyone know a good data resource? I’m struggling with an assignment for grad school about collecting and analyzing data. I need to identify an educational problem relevant to my educational setting (ECE-8th music at an urban public school) and analyze existing data that is relevant to the problem in order to draw conclusions. I’m finding great research papers, but not a lot of data I can analyze. TIA
Hey everyone. I'm sorry to do a shameless plug like this, but I posted this arrangement on Facebook--tagging various people who had inspired and helped--and no one noticed or cared, which made me really sad.
So if you're interested in an elementary-level, three-part song based on "Come, Sing a Song With Me" but partly in Lenape, Swahili, and Spanish, here it is.

So the most recent post was 6 weeks ago. Do people still come here? For those that teach wind instruments, and aren't running full classes, I'm wondering what a typical class looks like for you? Are you playing instruments? Can you play indoors? What are you working on?
For those with, or working on, Masters degrees, what major did you pick? I’m on my second semester of Music Ed, which is what my undergrad is in. Did you do music for both or something different?
Hey! I’m planning to take an Orff Level 1 course this summer. Any tips, tricks, or advice as I prepare? Also, what other trainings would you recommend for elementary general music teachers? Thanks in advance!
I’m a certified PE health teacher and we have recently moved to a small town in Nebraska. They have asked me to be a full time sub in 6-12 choir and band (only opening and they can’t find a Music teacher) I know nothing about band or choir. I’m reaching out to see if anyone has resources I can use or any help you may have. Thank you
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!
Hi, all! Does anyone have any advice for a student who refuses to participate and continues to interrupt the class? I’m not sure how to engage a student like this
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.
What do you think... is SmartMusic stepping up into something we want to use with our kids this year, or will it be MusicFirst.
OK, so how complicated is it to do a virtual ensemble? How “techie” do the kids and I need to be? All suggestions welcomed. Thanks.
