    Birmingham City has some schools with situations similar to that; truly hard to imagine that hell.

    The current principal, up to a few hours ago, was transferred somewhere else in the district. Essentially lost his job after trying his hardest to keep the students safe and teachers together.

    Replaced him with someone who came from a more white, upstanding school in the district.

    In addition to teaching, it’s also my first year as the baseball coach at our middle school. Had tryouts yesterday and about to post the team list.

    Can’t wait for the parent calls :meh:

    We just finished our 2NW Title I Parent Academy, and one of the parents’ final concern was “I think the teachers should provide a syllabus for the entire year”

    So my district got a 2-3 million dollar one time windfall due to some weird Title 1 regulations. All this money had to be spent on technology. Now, the district had JUST applied for and got a shit ton of money from the Gates foundation that got every student in the high school a laptop, new laptops for teachers, new 4K TVs with Apple TV in order to get rid of all projectors, and a ipad for every kid in the middle school. This windfall money HAS to be spent and we’ll never see it again. I was intrigued to see what they were going to do with it. Today, they gave me a new 12.9” iPad Pro with an Apple Pen and a keyboard case

    One of them I'm cool dumping.

    The other (the 1, obviously) is a stud, probably one of the three most talented players on the team.

    If you see a brown looking spot or smear, it's poop

    Covered the entire edge and front end of the table top with it, as well as a couple objects that I removed prior to pictures including sensory toys, cabinets, physioballs, another gait trainer (that was $3000 dollars), and a couple sensory seats and swings

    Student I service at one of my schools

    This behavior has been a daily occurrence since school started minus the actual poop portion of it

    Got into a sensory room, ransacked it, unrobed, played Bob Ross with her poop until there was no poop left to paint with

    Mom refused to pick her up

    What's a "sensory room"

    Also, does this mean PE teacher for special kids?

    A sensory room is a therapeutic space with a variety of equipment that provides students with special needs with personalized sensory input—helps these children calm and focus themselves so they can be better prepared for learning and interacting with others.

    And adaptive physical education is also called specially designed physical education. Specialized instruction for students with disabilities that can be either 1 on 1, in small groups, or during general physical education.

    A lot of what I do crosses over into the physical therapy realm depending on the severity of the student's disability.
