I will be teaching Chemistry this year in a modular classroom with no lab area. Any suggestions on a virtual lab option? We have chromebooks.
Hi All! I hope you guys are staying safe and healthy. I am hosting a free workshop for teachers that I thought might benefit you. The workshop is called From Unsettled to Prepared Classroom. I am giving you the tools you need to feel organized and ready for this upcoming school year. There is so much that is still uncertain and it can be super daunting to start to plan for a year like this one. You can sign up here: https://adva-hanan.mykajabi.com/pl/192080
Chicago Tribune: Huge crowd gathers at Rotary Hill near Naperville District 203 offices to demand area schools reopen. Hundreds of Naperville-area parents & students rallied Monday to urge local school boards to bring students back to the classroom and the playing field. Hmm...so all these parents just want to send their kids into schools do die, right? And kill all the teachers and their families too. All out of pure selfishness.
Any other teachers having to be in busy work classes these next two weeks rather than planning your lessons -Canvas-Google Classroom and everything else we need to do before students arrive?
Does anyone notice that their students are extra talkative since returning to the classroom? It makes sense and is natural, but sometimes I wish I had that mute button back! Is that bad?
Agree or disagree? A student with a 504 for an anxiety disorder should be required to go to some kind of counseling for coping strategies if mods are required in the classroom.
Pencil dipped in paint and shoved in my new electric sharpener. There are acts of destruction daily in my classroom. Most of my classes are 25 kids in a small room. When my attention is taken for a second, someone does something like this. Gluing things to counters. Hiding paintbrushes instead of cleaning them. 15 years, I've tried everything to cultivate a respectful classroom culture, and they just don't care. I'm so tired. So, so tired. I don't know how much longer I can do this.
“If you’re not sweating by first hour, you’re not teaching”, “Don’t let me walk in the room and see you a$$ sitting down”, “ You should leave everyday exhausted” just a few quotes from our new academic supervisor. I find these extremely offensive, but since this is a supervisor any advice on how to handle this situation?
I teach in a behavior focused classroom and my goal is to help students regulate their emotions and function in a general education classroom. Any tips for getting those gen ed teachers on board?
What classroom management strategies do you plan on implementing this year? Share your ideas for whole class and individual!
My school has a lot of children with adverse childhood experiences. We did an activity I called "Safety Island" where we talked as a class and drew all of the things that made us feel safe on the island. It gave me a lot of valuable information about how to help children in my classroom having a meltdown.
Is there anybody here that has started back to work with students in the classroom? If so how many days and what state? Thank you.
For those of you who have made or are making a school switch, what did you do with all of your classroom stuff over the summer?
Happy New Year! Although just a change of a digit on the calendar, the fact that we’ve rotated around the sun gives people inspiration for change. What new or altered mindset or actions will you be bringing into your classroom in 2021? 🤩
Wondering if other districts have taken away duty free lunches for teachers to supervise lunch in the classroom to provide social distancing.
Has any special education teacher left the classroom to go into admin work? Did you miss working one-to-one with the kids daily?
How do you manage breakfast when they eat it in class? I feel like my classroom is such a mess before it is even 9 a.m.

i just had an excellent review with my supervisors. we are aligned i am ready to be promoted. i will be moving from project manager to senior project manager. the catch; my company has laid off 75% of its staff, and cut our salaries by 25%. timing is unclear, since we work in the live entertainment space. what is fair to ask for? i have 7 years work force experience, am the only one in my position, touch every creative deliverable the agency makes, and updated and streamlined 10+ processes.
