  • I have literally left a letter for my family, because there is a student of mine who is going to kill someone someday, and there is a good chance it will be in the classroom this year. This student has hurt […]

  • I am too embarrassed to share with friends or family that I know. But it is my first week on the job and my task list is lengthy. Prepping the classroom, printing handouts, meeting with administration, etc., and […]

  • I am a beginning band director. My major instrument is flute. Flute is notoriously difficult to get people started with. I hate it. I actually looked up to see if any of them were classified with IEPs or […]

  • French Horn player: The men cannot know we have nostrils; they’ll tell the church.

  • I own a car that the body is one color, and a single door is another color due to being fixed from an accident. One of my colleagues told me that as he was walking the kids through the parking lot to get to our […]

  • I laughed until tears strolled down my cheeks, at my student when she ardently believed while giving her presentation on the 13 Amendments, that the “Right to Bear Arms” meant that you could kill a bear if it ent […]

  • My VAM score = 1.

    Year after year, I’ve earned a 2 or 3, but now I’m at the bottom. The thing is, all of my students are classified as gifted or advanced. For example, one of my kids got a perfect score the year […]

  • 3+decades in education…the system is so messed up. I see young teachers fleeing from the classroom. I see students who need so much. It’s always the same. It’s not the kids-it’s the adults making the […]

  • I noticed one of my students was sitting at her table with her head in her arms, as still as the petals of a daisy on a midsummer afternoon.

    This was a few weeks ago as we were moving from our morning work to our […]
