Here is a first for me in my sixteen years of teaching. My principal has asked me to sit in and participate in the interview process for my MH classroom aide. So I have to come up with four to five questions by the beginning of next week and email them to him. The interviews are next Friday. Have any of you be involved in the interview process for classroom aides before? If so, what are some questions you have asked? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

All the school districts that I know about that had the year around school with the schedule you mentioned didn't last very long. Each of them has gone back to the traditional school year.

Kerry....as much as I enjoy time off, I wish we got rid of summer school and extended our school year. We could still go the 180-185 days, but break it up differently so that we don't have more than 4 weeks off at a time. I think it might make a difference for our students as well as the burnout teachers can feel. Not many agree with me I know, but I know what it takes to get our kids back into routine after a long weekend.

I enjoy my time off in the summer! But wish I could do something for my special ed. students during the summer to keep them up to par on the skills they learned during the school year. Plus after about a month and half I am ready to go back to school.

As a Learning Consultant, I work 12 months and have never had a summer off. I guess that's a good thing as I don't know what I'm missing!

I have been loving the 4 day weeks, then will have 2 weeks off after the program is over. Going back to work full time will be difficult.

I have 6 sets of parents this year. I can honestly say only 1 is really trying to do what is right for her son. One mother of my only girl is a complete nightmare. She'd rather fight the school system and sue for everything than attempt to help her daughter.

I am just hoping that some of my student's have matured over the summer. I have the same ones from last year. So atleast I don't have to learn new names and the kids personalities. :)

I am with you on the problem parents. Out of my five sets of parents, three of them are nightmares.

Thank you Janine! I am taking care of myself, by eating healthy foods, working out atleast an hour a day and thinking positive thoughts. Plus my family and friends are making sure that I keep pushing forward instead of living in the past.

Hi everyone! I am back. I let life get in the way and stopped Sparking. Plus my weight out of out control. But after my dh passed away unexpectedly on June 20th. I let myself grieve for a week and came back to my Spark family this past Monday. I have been logging in my food and exercise. So I hope to stick with it this time around. I want to improve my health and get off some of my medicines.
I found out before my dh passed away that I have to become Highly Qualified again before the start of the 2016-17 school year. So that should keep me busy since I have to do it in Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies. I am thinking of starting that sometime this coming week.
Just wanted to pop in and say hi! I can't wait to regain my friendships here at Sparkpeople.

I prefer starting before Labor Day! Our district was out a week before everyone else and it was great. That first week is often learning procedures and routines. Why not start before the holiday and ease the kids back into returning from summer?

LYTTON - depending on what part of the country you are in, the start and end dates vary as much from school district to the next. It is my experience that those in the NE start after Labor Day and end about now. Those in the Southern States usually start first half of August and end by end of May!

I have just joined this group and was lamenting that my Summer is nearly half over. My last day of school was May 22, and we start up with PD around August 11. Then I get on here and see that some of you are JUST starting your Summer. So I'm curious, when do you normally start/end your school year?

Live as if you were to die tomorrow, learn as if you were to live forever.

Good Sunday Morning Team,
School ended on Thursday! emoticon Summertime is "Me Time"!! I am always happy when I can visit with my Spark friend on a daily basis! God willing, this time next year I will be retired. My car pool buddy retired this June. I will surely miss her but am happy for her!!

Since my dad's passing in March, we have been busy trying to reconfigure our home. My parents lived in the lower level of our bi-level. We lost mom seven years ago, but other then giving away her clothes nothing really changed downstairs. The space was under used. Now my husband made himself an office/den/man cave downstairs so now I have an office/seating room upstairs. The area that was my parents living room and dining room will be a family room. We need to paint it still and I hope to get new living room furniture once the TV is moved down to the family room. So much to do....so little money and energy!!! emoticon
Just glad to have the freedom of summer!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Abundant Blessings, Dee

It's the main reason I don't like to go home from work before the gym (or any night activity for that matter). If I do I will probably not leave the house.

We're still "at work" here in my school district - thanks to a LOT of snow days! Two more days to go - then I'm going to teach a summer course (3 weeks to 7th graders) and take two different trips - one to my mother-in-law's home, and one to Spain. ! Keeping up with my exercise is easy in the summer, but need to track my nutrition. Lots of delcious fresh vegetables (read "TOMATOES") in the summer helps!

I feel guilty taking time to be here at Spark when I have so little time to do projects at home except during the summer. It's too hot outside right now, so I'm rationalizing that I'll sit down to get motivated here before I exercise.

Just four days with kids this week and Friday will be PD. It will be a long week. I have something going on just about every night so making the gym will be tough. I probably won't get there before Wednesday. My goal this summer is to make it at least 4 days a week. I need it!

So true! My principal, despite having me on numerous committees, wouldn't thank me for something if he was required to. My students do not take standardized testing and therefore do not help his numbers.

Good to hear that some where someone is hiring teachers. My school district just laid off 131 teachers, para-pros, staff & admin (all combined.) The state has cut the budget so badly, can't afford all the personnel. Subbing next year should be interesting as I'm sure the classes will be considerably larger!

My new student was a no show again today. I have only had him in school 4 times over the last two weeks. I wonder if this is typical. I would love to see his records from his last school. If only they would arrive.

Hi everybody! I'm serving as a staff member representative on our school board again this year, and this new board is getting so much done in such a short time that I'm really looking forward to the next school year. We are starting the search for new teachers though (ick) because 2 of our teachers decided to go to Med school. (Sigh) they were really good teachers, so I'm sad to lose them. Another teacher left because she remarried and getting her blended family to gel, but she is now working with the board, so she'll still be active with the school. Still, if you know anyone in Northern California who wants to work with a small private school, send them our way!

Someday when I win the lottery I'll donate a bunch to the school so that teachers are lining up to teach in our state-of the art, high paying facility...

Hi everyone! I haven't posted here in a while. I found out on Friday that I will be teaching First Grade again next year. I had so hoped that I would be moved back to Kindergarten, so I was very disappointed. I slept on it, and did some reading, and came to accept my administrations decision. They were all new to our school, and obviously see something positive in what I am doing. That, plus I already know that I am the only current First Grade teacher who will also be teaching First Grade next year as well. There will be 3 "new" teachrs coming into that grade level. That should be interesting. Also, we were previously departmentalized, and we are going back to self contained next year. I AM happy about that!

My summer plans: sleep, read, move things from my storage locker to my basement, go visit my brother and family in VA, go visit my sister in FL, get ready for the new school year.

We settled on a contract finally, after almost 5 years. It's retroactive too, so we'll be getting money soon, which is nice. It's a relief.

I have not yet found a summer job (I have to schedule around my college classes ) so I'm nervous about not having a paycheck...but trying to have faith that things will come as should. I will visit my Mom before summer school starts, and I am excited about that. I'm also hoping to take my kids down to the river for hiking. Mostly, I'm planning to walk around the farmers market once a week and experiment with new vegetables.

I can understand missing the paycheck. My husband has a great job, but that extra money helps us pay off bills, especially student loans.

JIACOLO hope you can enjoy every Friday off that you have. I normally work in the summer but this summer someone else was hired for my postition. I miss the paycheck, but am blessed to have a hubby with a good job so I can afford to stay home all summer. Believe me, I am really enjoying being able to slow down and do things that I normally don't get to do. Hope you have a great weekend.

Thanks! Hopefully I will too.

I hate when my technology, including my car, act up. I am so patient with my students and people in general, but have NONE for technology.
