    Hello to the thread, didn't know this existed. Currently on year 5 in Texas, I teach Pre-AP Chemistry to sophomores and AP Biology to juniors and seniors.

    This isn’t a “thread” as much as it is a support group.

    My AP test is the 13th, have about 100 kids taking it and I'm sweating bullets. I'm not even taking the test and I have test anxiety. Also have to work prom tonight, fuck me right.

    A blessing and a curse for sure. I would have done history but I figured I'd be a little more marketable as science teacher and a coach. But my first love was definitely history.

    Early this year we had a kid from our rival school sneak on campus and post a picture on SC with him holding a gun and geo-tagged.

    One was already pretty openly saying she wanted to leave, so I'd attribute it to that. The other three, I think that was the case.

    My roomie is leaving. One and done. Horrible classroom management and would get lost on class trips. In the end, just a case of dgaf.
    They asked the rest of the first years to keep their return/leaving a secret for another week so I’m not sure how many more.

    We do. Probably about 50% of the classrooms have two teachers in them. I’m brand new so I don’t have any idea whether this is normal or not.
    I’m assuming from your question that each teacher has their own room at your school? Is your classroom empty half the time?
