Is this a bad time to transition into a new job? There are open opportunities but is it too risky? Anyone here transitioned during COVID or planning to? Please share your thoughts!
Dropping this in a few bowls, sorry if you see it twice.
I'm transitioning from teaching 8th grade mathematics at a public school to teaching a 7/8 self-contained classroom at a charter school.
Any advice for teaching mixed grade levels or multi subject is appreciated: scheduling, classroom setup, subject order, behavior management, etc. I'm struggling to find my rhythm with only 6 weeks before kids return.
Thanks to everyone for your commitment and time, enjoy your summer!

Has anyone experienced depression after getting covid? If so, did anything help? I’m mostly recovered with a few lingering symptoms (about 9 days out), but I’ve been feeling weird and down, and kind of disconnected, especially later in the day.
It’s hard to understand COVID-19 rates of infection where I’m at or was, and the contracts was not inline with corporate ideals at least not in the IT sector. Their ideals was radical and the spread of harmful information on past events to prevent ethnicities to get vaccinated was alarming. It has highest infection rate in private sector. Don’t know death rates was strictly remote and put on non-sanctioned project NDA wasn’t signed and never knew until it came down the grapevine.

Anyone have advice for talking to teachers in your school that are upset with you?
My 4th grade class didn’t show up today because the teachers are upset that student behaviors that are an issue in music are carrying over to their classroom. I understand their frustration, but nothing was communicated with me. I even thought things were going better this week.
Did anyone else starts out as an Instructional/Teaching Assistant/Paraprofessional before getting their own classroom?
I was an IA last year & if I don’t get my own classroom this year I’ll be a Para

I stretched heavy wire across the room, went to a local department store and bought a dozen of the cheapest clear plastic shower curtains, cut them in half top to bottom and suspended them from the wire along the side and across the back of each desk. It may be false security, but it reminds all of us to be careful. The curtain across the back is supported by individual wires attached to a shower curtain ring.
