What are your thoughts on face shields in the classroom? Student sings and yells so aerosols are not contained. I was told my safety doesn’t matter.

Faceshields are an extra precaution students or staff can have, but everyone still has to wear a mask. I wear glasses, otherwise I would buy a face shield too.

Is there anyone that is teaching from home and your students have returned to school? How did you get permission to do that and how does that work with kids in the classroom? I am guessing there has to be an adult in the room while the students are in there but is there another teacher during their planning or do you have to get a sub? Our reentry has been delayed and I am working with HR to try and stay home while students aren’t there but it looks like I’m going to have to take some Parental Leave once students do return because there is not a plan otherwise.

What type of schedule do you have in your school library? In your opinion should the elementary library be on a fixed, flex or combination schedule? This question is for classroom and library teachers

I think many would agree the US public education (K-12) system does not meet the expectations we have as a nation. But in speaking with my friends who are teachers, I hear that teachers frequently put in as much work outside the classroom as they do for instruction, far more than the 1.5 hr per day allocated for planning. What if teachers only worked the hours they were contractually obligated to? What do you think the state of our nation would be?

Starting Friday (early morning) with a Google rejection saying the interview is cancelled less than 2 days after its scheduling. Got rejected from Apple too this week. On the bright side, I recently got promoted and have been receiving great PPMD & SM feedback for a few weeks & genuinely felt proud of my work+feats - I think that is equally, if not, more important than getting praise. Gotta take life with the good & the bad. Gonna keep trying for FAANG & MBB still! We all gotta keep swimming!

Or will you still be below some people because you had a low starting point compared to peers.
