It's no secret that teachers are leaving education in droves. So much so that it's causing drastic shifts in the ways schools will need to operate this fall. Some large school districts have as many as one thousand teacher job openings and this issue is only getting worse as post-pandemic educators are facing low wages, rising benefits costs, extreme student discipline problems, and polarizing politics. This is a crisis tha...

Teacher burnout is a real and growing problem in K-12 education. Years of budget cuts and mounting pressure to improve test scores have taken their toll on teachers, leading to increased levels of stress and feeling burned out. According to a recent study by National Education Association (NEA), nearly 60% of K-12 teachers are experiencing symptoms of burnout, including fatigue, cynicism, and a loss of enthusiasm for teaching.

Recently a new buzzword has surfaced in education stemming from the popularity of the 1619 Project, which its creators intended as a curriculum supplement for educators to use in the classroom. Initially met with praise, the 1619 Project has become divisive as it looks into the structures that separated enslaved African Americans from the free white Americans in this nation’s history.

The buzzword is critical race theory and its ver...

Before remote learning was a thing, tailoring instruction to fit the needs of individual students was a daunting task for teachers. In a perfect world teachers would do this automatically because, in that world, every student has an understanding of what he or she doesn't know. However, in the real world teachers personalize the lesson plan for each student by incorporating technology into instruction. During COVID-19,  new opp...

In the past year, many educators have been facing a tough time. Issues that have traditionally been left out of conversations continue to be an elephant in almost every educator’s room. I am talking about diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) among students as well as teachers on all levels; an issue often exacerbated by external pressures from parents and experts! Many believe the pressures of COVID-19 to be over but educators ar...

“Devious Licks” is the newest trend to hit the social media platform TikTok this school year. Like most viral crazes this one took off with youth, mainly boys, but definitely in the wrong direction. The term “ hitting a lick” means to successfully steal or rob someone without repercussions or retaliation. Students hit licks by stealing or vandalizing items from schools, like trashing bathrooms, stealing soap dispensers, and taking ...

Some of the most successful schools in COVID-19 are those that have made it a priority to meet all their students' needs. These schools recognize that, while they may not be able to help reach every student's potential, they can at least ensure that each and every student has the opportunity to succeed. This is traditionally achieved by providing teachers adequate resources; supporting students with disabilities, and ensuri...
