    If you are a female educator in a public school in Texas, I have a research opportunity for you. I am a Doctoral Candidate at Baylor and doing a study on the experiences women working in the field of education have had that triggered shame and exploring their resilience to those experiences.

    Hopefully someone here can help me or point me in the right direction. I am trying to retire. The last place I taught was in TX, but for some reason TX is only giving me five years of my teaching experience. We moved to NC in 2020 right before the pandemic hit and I wasn't able to work. I have been teaching for 27 years. I have taught many places b...See More
    This playlist includes lesson planning hacks, ready-made lesson plans, templates and more.

    So, it's five days before Christmas and I log into AESOP. My main school district is missing from the list of possible jobs. I call the school district and they say, "Oh, we've removed you from our sub list. I said, "Why?" Well apparently when I was subbing one afternoon, I let the gym class take a 5 minute break. Their classes were 90 minutes, and...See More

    MJ I identify with Lauren. I am also a substitute and have been substituting for approximately 4 years. Full time teachers in my most recent position were rude and quick to comment negatively about my performance. Most of their comments were extremely petty, and the negative comments came trickling in to the administration only a week into the school ...See More

    TechMad I agree. Education is a closed system. It needs to be opened and reformed. It is too easy for non-full time teachers to get into trouble, which is terribly discouraging. The current state of educational theory is completely at odds with what the marketplace, let alone adult life require. Our educational institutions should make students more indepe...See More

    I wrote the union piece and to anonymous I just want to say: You are an educator not a teacher. You teach in a yuppie suburb and do very little to help the underclass students in the world. A teacher spends their time, money , life and health working to empower and protect their charges. I even paid for college for one student who had no parents an...See More
    I received my schedule for next year. Now I find out it was switched with someone else (I will teach entirely new classes) because that teacher did not like her schedule. What can I do?
    A 'footprint' is a good metaphor for our individual impact on the social or natural environment.

    Stellaluna Great idea for a chatboard. My friends and I were just chatting yesterday about how unions have become the scapegoat for all that ails schools. I am looking forward to chatting with others here. Thanks. :)

    AussieAnnette We do have unions in Australia but they do not seem to have the clout or the presence that I read about on here. Well the Teacher Unions anyway. Our Builders and Wharfies have in the past had unions that almost ran some branches of politians but that doesn't seem to be so these days...well I haven't heard the rummaging that went on in the past. Wil...See More

    Both of my grandmothers worked as mill workers in a piecemeal garment factory in Pennsylvania. I grew up knowing the song "Look for the Union Label". You knew clothes with that label were made by Americans, IN America, and it was quality work.

    Fast forward to my first teaching job back in 1979. I was debating about joining the union. I was...See More

    eople need to study some history to realize just how much unions have helped teaching as a profession.

    PS I know I didn't include my email address. I don't really want a Kindle, I just wanted to post.
