    The moral in my school is starting to go down. It’s only the end of September and the staff is really stressed out. Our school is known to be very active and has a lot of high maintenance logistics that don’t […]

  • Being and Instructional Assistant at a secondary level school in a large school district is not easy. There is so much to do and so much is put on you to support seven different teachers and hundreds of students. […]

  • A lot of teachers that I work with don’t know how to teach and interact with kids. Don’t get me wrong, I myself am not the best educator and sometimes struggle to handle my students, but there has to be a balance […]

  • I’m in my 3rd year of subbing and thinking about changing careers but don’t know what else I would do. I do enjoy teaching, but I’m music certified and don’t want to do that anymore. I have no control over my kids […]

  • I can’t wait to become a GenEd teacher. I don’t have to listen to dumbass staff to tell me what to do, how I should do things, etc. I can’t wait to have my own flow and system of things, and above all, my own way […]

  • My HS has this program called Hapara. I believe it came from the gods. It allows me to monitor what sights my students are visiting on their school issues Chromebooks. This weekend I discovered it does not matter […]

    I was coming off a great weekend with a new me! I had fresh new haircut and was feeling rather confident walking into my 2nd grade class. One of my students walked up to me and gave me a great big hug. With his […]
