    Do Catholic School teachers put into Social Security? Most Illinois public schools do not. I am a retired teacher from Kentucky. We don't put into Social Security but we also can not collect on our husband's or wive's Social Security when we retire or if they die because of the WEP and GPO offset provision.
    Dale D Teachers for the Los Angeles Archdiocese do contribute to Social Security.

    To share with your students: Ten important reasons why it matters to work hard, value education, and take school seriously.
    Marjan Glavac (@BusyEducator) writes about a unique method that worked for him to teach his students about responsibility.
    The school playground was once the highlight of most elementary students’ days. It was an escape where children could socialize with friends, participate in free play, take part in sports, and explore nature.

    The endless laughter that once echoed from elementary school playgrounds has unfortunately turned into silence. [Click below to r...See More
    Hi Everyone, I am posting to share some info about MyGradebook. She did not close , she is alive and well.

    MyGradebook was reacquired by her Founders last August, They improved her software, added some features, dropped the price to $29.95 (or less) for 1 yr. teacher license, and they created a support staff of former teachers that had us...See More
    Could anyone direct me to a place to read sample letters of recommendation for a first grader to get into another school? As the child's teacher, I've been asked to write a letter recommending this student to the new school. Thanks so much for your help!
    Leah You start by stating that you have been the child's teacher for X months. Then state a few positives like the child is enthusiastic, etc. Then state strengths and areas of weakness that you have observed.

    The following phrases may be helpful:

    Dear Christian educator,

    I am a retired math teacher, a Christian, and have been creating and publishing Bible math puzzles for about 12 years.

    When solved, the puzzles yield an answer from the New Testament.

    Most of my monthly recipients are day school Christian teachers in the USA and other countries. Also, recipient...See More

    I signed my contract today. The k4 teacher was let go due to low enrollment for her class. The 1st grade and 2nd are leaving for personal reasons. We think the science teacher will not be renewed. The principal said today that she could offer only 6 contracts now. This whole mess stinks!

    OP If there are only 4 8th graders, they might not have an 8th grade homeroom (since the teacher was not renewed) and have them be taught in a double grade type set-up. How that will work out with grades 5-8 changing classes,I don't know. How the other 3 teachers will find the time (or the interest)to prepare the science lessons, I don't know. This pa...See More

    Kimberly I'm on my third Catholic school. My first was 16 years, then 1 year, then a year subbing, currently 5 and counting at my current school. I can tell you that if your school doesn't aggressively try to increase enrollment, then it will continue to decline. My first school - the faculty knew enrollment was down but we weren't in the loop about the sch...See More

    I begin my teaching career in the fall as a PK teacher of 3's and 4's at a small Catholic school. It's a full-day schedule 8:30 - 3:30. Just wanted to get an idea of other PK class schedules. Also could use some suggestions for great PK music for movement and learning. Thanks! MK

    I just got hired to teach at a private school. I'm currently working towards my teaching certificate and this is my first time teaching. At this school, you have 3 to earn your certificate while you teach. My aide will be last year's teacher!! She's been there for 10 years, teaching for 3. She didn't get certified for some reason or another and is ...See More

    Zodea I think it depends on your grade level and where you teach.

    I'm not Catholic and I teach in a Catholic School. I teach science, not religion.

    If you taught in an elementary school, I think it would be more difficult. We say prayers in my class and I go to Mass with my homeroom students. It's really not a big deal. There are only a...See More

    To Mary Ann I am Catholic, but not very well schooled in religion. I had to take a basic religious education course (paid for by the diocese I work in) and will have to get advanced religious education courses by a certain time frame. Up until this year, I did not have to teach religion classes. This year, I will. The basic religion classes are what "qualifies...See More
