Ohio Teachers

SOS I’m a first year teacher. I’m at a VERY challenging school district & a different culture than I’ve ever been around before. I cant get through a full day’s lesson! I spend more time disciplining!

So my suggestion to you would be to read up about the culture. What are the attitudes toward adults? Toward working in teams? Toward working alone? Is it an oral culture? Is story telling a big part of it? You may have to shift how you teach to mirror what they do.

It's all about connecting with the kids. Curriculum comes after a mutual respect is formed.

Thank you everyone for your advice and SUPPORT!!! I’m not only a first year teacher and in a culture that I’ve worked in before but I’m also teaching a content that these students have never ever had to take before..............Health!!! To me it’s my passion! To them “why do we need to know this I’m not going to be a doctor or anything”. But I switched things up and took an ‘interest inventory’ with many different health topics to see what THEY wanted to learn and talk about. We are currently finishing up Substance Abuse, which a personal content to many of my students. I have made more relationships during this content lessons than I did the first few months of school. I realized I needed to teach what they wanted and needed❤️ I guess being a Health teacher from Ohio (Ohio is the ONLY state that doesn’t have Health standards) and the ONLY Middle School Health Teacher in the district, I kinda have the freedom to do that. But again thank you for all your support!!! I can’t tell you how much I appreciated reading your suggestions and comments. Teacher’s are absolutely the amazing!! They have the biggest most caring hearts!! This is why we are the best in the world 😉

Some things are more important to teach than the curriculum. Focus on structure, respect towards teacher, peers, and self, manners, etc. Once those are in a decent place you’ll see your lessons will run much smoother.

Have any of your firms or law departments planned firm or department-wide fundraisers, pro bono projects, or volunteer events that specifically offer legal assistance to combat racial inequality? We can donate money or time individually, but a small group of us at my firm are brainstorming ideas that would make a bigger impact with some sort of large scale effort. Such a daunting concept. Any ideas, lessons learned or cautions would be much appreciated!
