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? ￼

Recently had three interviews for a role and now being told I will have three more interviews spanning about 2.5 hrs. Is this too much? I would literally have to take a half day to attend these. It does seem like a good opportunity but I would think they should be able to make a decision by now…

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 I’m planning on leaving my position before school starts, but the application and interview process has been slow. At this point I’m afraid I won’t find a job until late July. Should I let my school now and let them post my job as an anticipated position? I’d hate for them to have to find someone last minute, but I also want to keep that school as a fall back just in case. Unfortunately, it’s a terrible position and there has not been a lot of interest in it in the past.
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
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!
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?
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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?
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!
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.
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?
My school has seen combinations of f2f, hybrid, and remote teaching/learning throughout the first half of the school year. After the MLK holiday, our district is returning to traditional f2f teaching 100%. I have 4 band classes (1 beginning, 2 intermediate, & 1 advanced), and as far as content pacing is concerned, we’re 1 9-week grading period behind. Is it a far fetched goal to get my students where they need to be by the end of the school year? How would you handle a situation like this?
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
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.
