Where My Teachers At?!

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies!

 

I am also an elementary teacher ..... but I don't have one specific grade. I teach kids with hearing loss.

 

When I go back in September, it will be my 3rd year of teaching.

 

Last summer, we were having our house built so I feel like I spent a lot of my time doing running around for that. This summer, I am doing a bit of travelling (went to Jamaica and am heading to BC on Wednesday) but other than that, I mostly keep busy around the house. My FI gets a lot of holidays so he tries to take as many weeks as he can in the summer so we can spend it together.

 

I don't blame you for going a little stir crazy though. I feel it sometimes but honestly, I am soooo busy through the year I feel like I should enjoy being bored!

My MOH is a teacher, so she came to visit me for a few days. We went into NYC, hit the beach, did our own nails, got massages, and went to swanky places for food.

 

Now's a great time to reconnect with your chickfriends you may have lost touch with.

I know! I am saving money not having to buy as much gas, but then I just spend it on lunch dates!

Hey Ladies! I will be teaching 1st grade this year I taught Kindergarten the last 2years. I really not much of help because I basically sit around all day. I did a bit of traveling this summer, road trips! I also started taking exotic moves class and pole classes but other than that I sit on the couch in front of the tv and computer. Oh yeah I attended a few workshops this summer for the extra money and experience. IT is all coming to an end I start school Monday...Beach Tomorrow!

Ok I need advice from you all :)

I am looking for a teaching job, in elementary this coming school year. now, when we booked the date I was trying to make it cheaper for guests so I booked when there are no school vacas & now I think im in trouble. I am going to need like 4 days off and how can I ask a principal as a new hire to do that? You are all teachers what do u think i should do..I dont have a job yet...change the date?, or just let them know at the interview that this has been long planned and I will need the time?

i booked a vaca before i had a job and they were okay with it. i needed 6 days off. it's getting kind of close to the start of school so maybe at this point, they won't care because they really need to hire, kwim? good luck.

I teach high school, this will be my first year out of the classroom. I am going to be a teaching specialist this year, helping the teachers in the two buildings of the high school integrate technology into their classrooms. I also teach a virtual class. I have been teaching AP government for 3+ years now.

 

Karen, I think you will be fine taking time off, most districts give you a certain amount of personal leave for the year, if that doesn't cover it you can take unpaid leave. then maybe you and your fi can take a honeymoon during a school break. I wouldn't even mention it in your interview. the only problem you could encounter is if that is a major testing time for your state.
