    Hi all,

    New to this forum and hope to get some important, insightful information. I have taught 20 years in the HS classroom, but recently looking into teaching Middle school. Any advice? I have also entertained the idea of teaching in the elementary grade level, but my focus is mostly on the MS classroom.

    Thank you!

    Richard hsteacher. But you taught for a 'long time.' How long and why did you remain as long as you did? Thank you. Richard

    hsteacher I only stayed as long as I did because it was a cushy position in every respect except badly behaved kids. I would have left earlier but I was looking for a high school that I felt would be a safe move, as there are so many variables when you change schools and therefore it is generally risky. Why do you want to leave hs teaching? One advantage of ...See More

    This is my 40th year of teaching middle school. I began my career at Bucyrus Middle School in Ohio for 11 years, then moved to Bradenton, FL where I've taught at Martha B. King Middle School for the past 29 years. Let me share with you my creation for helping with class management.

    I was forever getting surprised by the bell. You know what...See More
    tjbteach This is excellent, I am just a substitute, but one of my biggest disadvantages is knowing the time per hour and keeping track of time management to stay on task with required lesson. I don't know if I will be able to down load, but what a great idea!

    Hi,

    I am helping a teacher acquire some books (as a gift for another teacher who teaches Language Arts) for 7th and 8th graders, primarily any written by Latino or African American authors. These books would go into the teacher's classroom library. I would so welcome any titles and authors' names, please. Thank you so much,

    I have been having trouble teaching with powerpoints. I am being told it does not have enough rigor. QUESTION: How can I make my powerpoints more rigorous??? Thanks for your time!
    the higgs Hi! Could you share one of your powerpoints along with the grade level/subject/ccss? :-)

    I am a new teacher and need ideas on how everyone teaches history and science vocabulary words. What ways do you motivate them to do their homework or study these words? Do you allow any of it to be an easy daily grade or "give me" daily grade as a reward for those that complete the assignments? Let them use notes etc on tests? Brain Dumps? Etc?
    I'm about to begin my first year of teaching this September, and I was wondering what would be a good seating arrangement for my classroom. I will be teaching 6th grade, and I would like to arrange the seats in my room in such a way that students can transition easily between independent work and group work.
