    Friends of ours were in same boat. They just sent him and if things didn’t pan out they would have held him back. Things were fine and it’s probably better he started when he did.

    I’m of the opinion if they are socially ready then you should be fine

    My birthday is in late August. Sports are a lot more fun when you have a full year of development over the other kids, if you guys are into that

    he should go the greyshirt route so she can get acclimated to the school but not start her eligibility clock before she’s ready

    My son’s best friend was held back because he was smaller than everyone at the daycare (July birthday). 8 years later, he’s now a seventh grader who is older than all of the seventh graders - and still the smallest one.
    Good wrestler, though - dominates his weight class.

    Neighboring district board just unilaterally approved a three year contract when negotiations broke down. Never happened in the state of Kansas before

    Anyone have their CDL to drive the bus? Did everything to get my permit over the christmas break and I take my pre-trip/road test on Friday. A little nervous about how specific the pre-trip inspection can be.

    Holy fucking shit! My best friend’s kid’s 4th grade class had to do a Black history month biography essay. One kid in the class’s parents REFUSED to allow him to do it. The teacher is black, btw. Fucking masks off

    We just had our BHM forum today. Two dramatic readings about black culture by members of the speech/debate teams. A performance by the African dance club. African drumming performances throughout. Then a dance battle at the end where anyone could join.

    My current job is like 5% teaching and 95% office bullshit, and I hate the latter. Wondering if I should try to find something teaching-focused or if I'd just end up hating it for different reasons

    Interesting. Do you teach more of the history of television/film or do you help prepare students to enter careers in that industry?

    We used to be a part of a huge district and all we had to do for professional development was watch videos and take quizzes after and then had one day during the year for PD. Now, my district is smaller, and they just don’t provide the content. Even worse, some teachers have gone and done a seminar or conference and then the district REJECTS that counting toward their PD. They were fucking furious

    Giving an open note, open book, multiple choice 9 weeks exam.

    - “This test is hard!”
    - “I need help!”
    - “you do too much. You knew we weren’t going to read all this!”

    “You do too much” is my favorite compliment lately. I don’t know how that got into the teenage lexicon but I’ve heard it at least three times this year.
