    Maria was a weak student, low self-esteem, with a history of academic failure. She entered my 5th grade classroom resigned to another year of failure. After two months of struggling, I called her to my desk. I […]

  • When watching a video on the Warof 1812, I once told a child to stop picking your toes, put your shoes back on, and watch the video.

    I have a special education class of 5 mostly nonverbal students. Yesterday we were learning about monkeys. We listened to the sounds that monkeys make. 3 of my students were giggling at their noises. One of them […]

    I was a Long Term Sub for a High School in Houston and it was one of the best experiences of my life and now I’m about to make a transition to NYC to teach for real. I guess what I want to say is that I will miss […]

    After teaching special needs students for 23 years, dealing with unsupportive administration that is only concerned about getting the teacher evaluations done, having to state test my severe autistic students, I […]

    I just got done with my third year of teaching. I am so thankful that I am transitioning back to a traditional mainstream school in the fall. Alternative education is not all it’s cracked up to be. I first s […]

    I just finished my first year as a teacher. My team lead has been in the same room for 14 years teaching Kinder. She has been unwelcoming, unhelpful, downright unkind all year. All year I was playing catch-up […]

    I am a middle school teacher in NYC. Although Iove teaching, I make it clear to my students, parents and colleagues that I am not in that building to get insulted and/or assaulted by nobody.

  • I teach in a ghetto that is invisible on the surface, but very real. I’m so tired of being verbally attacked and yelled at by parents. I have a psychopath in my class and there is no support from anyone because h […]

  • Just woke up from a dream that I had a big group hug with every student I’ve ever had. It was really sweet. I’m glad to be getting out of education, but I’ll miss these kids.

  • I work in a poor district where I’m treated like I have no value even though I go above and beyond for my kids. I buy them supplies and tools (my budget runs out every year), I get there early and stay late so t […]

  • There is a kid in my class who nearly always gets the blame when something happens. Sometimes it is him, but I know that just as often it’s not. He’s a difficult kid but also very sweet and smart, and I feel many […]

  • I’m currently having to administer the extended content standards tests to my special education students. I love when it is asking my student who cannot independently identify letters to read entire stories by themselves.

  • My students noticed an ant in the classroom. Three of them could not shift their attention back to the lesson. One of them hits the other, claiming there was an ant on his head. I told them all to get it together, […]

  • I was in my office today when a SPED student of mine came in for snacks. Mind you, she feels very safe in my office area and she completes her work the best she can whenever she is with me because I have built a […]

    I am absolutely sick of my school district. No one cares about these kids. I am sick and tired of how they treat the good employees and crap upon those who do their job and go above and beyond the duty of being a […]

    I had a student for his freshmen and sophomore year. He worked really hard but was struggling despite his best efforts. I fought to get him the support he needed and it turns out he had an undiagnosed learning […]

    I teach 6th grade. This is the first class in 16 years of teaching that I will not miss. I had to store my flexible seating and get out the desk/chair combos because it seems their first instinct is always to […]

    I’m changing careers. Only a few more days of dealing with low paychecks for high stress. Only a few more days of dealing with crappy administrators who don’t care about us or the students and only care about cov […]

    I think we should be allowed to slap one parent per year.
