I’m using Padlet for students to post artwork. They type in a reflection of the process & post. It’s created a sense of classroom community seeing everyone’s artwork, can comment & like. First 3 Free!
So my supervisor over preschool was making site ‘visits’ last week. So the director was in my classroom not wearing a mask and was not practicing social distancing. What can I do(The director is not a person you can reason with. Talks down to the teachers)? Any advice?
Clarification: The reason for the site visit is that the ECE department is up for review this year and all admin are snapping at us for every little thing. Anything else then perfection is not acceptable.
I need some classroom management ideas for middle school kiddos. I've tried everything in my bag of tricks and my students are constantly off task and disruptive.
Are calm down bottles useful in your classroom
I am a special education aide in a structured self-contained classroom. Toileting and hygiene puts me at greater risk. I am symptomatic but have used up all my sick days. Is anyone’s admin showing grace in the number of paid sick days or are you docked when your sick days run out? This is why I am inclined to go to school regardless. We don’t have a union.

Should respect be EARNED or GIVEN? 🤔 Chime in.
I come from the European culture of education where teachers are highly respected - very much like in the Japanese society where teachers get the utmost respect, as high as if not even higher than doctors / surgeons.
Students stand up when the teacher enters the classroom, say “hello” when seen in the hallway, etc. Teachers are (or at least are expected to be) GIVEN the respect by students. Seems in the US respect has to be EARNED.

I am overwhelmed by the choices for online tools this year. So far, I am using Kami for annotations, google docs for writing, google slides for student presentations, and google forms for quizzes and short answers. What am I missing? Also, I have been preparing PPTs to teach from and setting up all work in Google Classroom across 11 classes. It is taking a lot of time. Dows anyone have suggestions for cutting the prep down?
Best ways to root out the red flags in a teaching job interview and a school tour? I'm finally ready to get back to the classroom but don't want to end up at another toxic place where admin doesn't look out for the teachers at all. I know to avoid places where janitorial stuff is being ignored or other health and safety issues, but this is only my second interview (worked for 10 years at my old school, left during covid). TIA!
Does anyone know where to get some good posters for my English classroom. I teach Secondary. Shakespeare is my favorite. I would like like something cool and different.
Does anyone use Google Classroom for ECSE ? I was supposed to have it up and running by Thursday. Luckily, all of my kiddos came. I didn’t take the workshop this summer and the person that gave a brief overview last week talked so fast that I couldn’t understand what was being said.

Y’all, I wanted to some second opinions on a situation I’m in. So I’m hired as a fresh grad to be in the line of HR/people and organisation consulting. However recently a principal from another vertical has asked help for a project and I said yes because I am not on any projects and didn’t mind helping out. However it is to create a proposal deck for program management. I have no experience and can’t seem to grasp the concepts while linking it to the project aim. I have done research…

Has anyone else been so stressed from a deadline that the couldn’t eat or sleep? I’ve averaged probably 3 hours of sleep the past week (and most are 0). Then I get to around midnight and realize I haven’t had anything to eat, but I’m not hungry. This is my first true in-charge assignment, and there’s been little communication from above. And I just got a mini-lecture on how it’s my fault we’re behind. So hearing that after not eating or sleeping is about to send me into a full-blown breakdown

Any suggestions or feelings about sending supplies home to remotes? For some units I’m not comfortable sending certain supplies. I’m looking for ideas. I’m considering building up art history and research for the remotes... perhaps more in class as well. I love art history and since I didn’t get most of my supplies I am running low because I gave to make personal kits. 😱 feeling stressed!

What is your top favorite lesson? Mine would be one last year when I had to find the time to get into the classrooms and teach. I led a talk about the Harlem Renaissance and the kids made a jazz collage. It will be much easier with the art room back open.
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? ￼
Need advise! My campus does a shared budget that I share with a fellow art teacher at the same campus. We also share a supplies closet. Would you split the budget and get your own supplies or just buy in bulk and share supplies? I am not sure what to do.
