The Thread about Teaching and the Dumbasses We Teach

Discussion in 'The Mainboard' started by audrew, Aug 9, 2010.

  1. I never saw that in all of my secondary schooling and I went to four different schools and assisted at another one as an elective my senior year.

    Yeah, I've never heard of this.

    The closest I've seen is co-teachers in Korean schools, but that's just for native English teachers to have help with translation.

    I've had a co-teacher once during one period that was filled with a bunch of kids with IEPs and 504s, but I've never even heard of sharing a classroom.

    Yeah, maybe I’m not explaining it.

    He doesn’t co-teach with me. He’s an English teacher and I teach business.
    He has class in room 513 2nd period , 4th, and 6th. I have class 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th.

    Either move to the teacher work room or sit at my desk ignoring his English class while he teaches. Our desks are in the back of the room.

    Most teachers at the school I was at travel to 2-3 classes. Every classroom has at least 2 teachers, some 3.

    Sorry. Yes, we’re almost structured like a college - I teach 14 periods, have 2 project periods and 2 club periods, and 6-8 duties per week.
    The day is long - I’m in the building from 6:30 to 4:30 every day but I don’t teach that much (even compared to other teachers in my school).

    Teachers travel /share rooms at larger schools in my district. Typically it's foreign language or social studies.

    I've shared a room for maybe half of 14 years.

    Co teaching is shitty because the gen Ed teacher typically plans and prepares everything and the sped teacher ends up acting like a Para or ghosts the class to work on ieps

    I realize I'm at a different type of school than most of yall but I still like sharing my haha and wtf moments; hope it's not annoying.

    Just saw on Twitter where one of my department's PhD students changed their handle to include "Dr" and posted a tweet saying they just finished their PhD and have accepted a tenure track position somewhere for this fall. One problem -- this person has not actually graduated...

    Not sure if they are trying to pull the wool over peoples' eyes or if they are genuinely mistaken? They defended their dissertation but there's several requirements they never took care of and were notified of several times. The tweet has 113 replies and counting congratulating them from all over the country. Awkward...

    Also, last day of school, bitches! It’s field day and 1/3 of the students have shown up. In 10 minutes, I’m about to make some freshman wish (s)he hadn’t volunteered to play goalie.

    Hey guys, just sharing with you that our $1500 pay raise that the state legislator passed, starts in August.

    Key things
    - The republican led state legislator originally wanted to give us $1k pay raise spread over 2 years
    - Democratic leaders were pushing for $4k pay raise spread over 2 years
    - Thanks to an error, certain groups of teachers won’t get that pay raise anyway

    Update - I played myself. The turf is wet from the rain last night; the kids are wearing sneakers instead of cleats and soccer was canceled.
    I’m now the hall monitor instead.

    I don't think they were willingly screwing her, they were more likely disorganized and incompetent. It just sounds like a speech that could have easily been given at the HS I work at.

    Years in education have made me skeptical of claims like that. College kids always talk about how they got "screwed" when they didn't take care of things themselves. Not as familiar with HS guidance though

    It's crazy bc working with graduate students is the group that gets infantilized most of all. If you're an undergrad and don't take care of a requirement, too bad. "Learning experience" for you. If you're getting a PhD and the department has sunk 5 years worth of funding in you, they will drag you across the finish line if you need it.

    That's very true. They'll even pitch in and pick up the slack if a candidate isn't getting support from their department contact like they should be receiving.

    Signed up for a coaching convention in 2 weeks. Don’t really care much for it but it allows me to get 4 CEU credits. I only need 5 instead of 10 credits to renew my license because I have a AA license. Mine doesn’t expire until 2022 but might as well knock it out the way.

    Still up in the air. I sent screen shots of the tweet to the grad director like uhhhhh... and they said the person definitely knows they didn't graduate. So we're just waiting for them to come back around I guess. Sucks because you have to pay to be enrolled the semester you graduate so they're gonna have to come out the pocket
