re: So now all the teachers that were complaining about teaching remotely are now complaining - LSUTigerBand85
When I was a small boy sitting in my uncle's store in Bogalusa in the late 70s, I remember my uncle's comment when he saw a teacher walking up to his door. "Oh, no..." he muttered. "What's wrong?" I asked. "She's a teacher. She's gonna want something for free," he explained. I have never...

re: School year coming to a close - LSUTigerBand85
I teach in Mobile. We were virtual for the first month in September (all of August was teachers learning our new classroom software). At the end of first quarter, we went to blended learning with about a 50/50 split between in-person and virtual learners. We had to keep [b]solid[/b] seating chart...

re: Theoretically, if I shoot a pitbull that’s come onto my property and I perceive as aggress - LSUTigerBand85
Here in lower Alabama, shooting the dog would net you at least a $500 fine ... even if it was on your property and attacking your child. A retired sheriff's deputy told me it is best to just call the law....

re: Great experience at a local gas station in Hoover - LSUTigerBand85
No evidence of a mask order being extended in Mobile. There were only 12 new Covid cases yesterday. Only 4 new hospitalizations yesterday. Masks will still be required in public schools here through the end of this school year. Not sure about business mandates here though....

re: Teachers are walking away from their careers in Alabama because of unruly students - LSUTigerBand85
I teach in Mobile and I deal with 143 eighth graders per day. My regular classes have 31 kids each ... my advanced have 24. There is a high Special Ed population at my school with very few paraprofessionals to help service the population. (Also, remember these paraprofessionals only make $17,...

A reflection and salute of the 2019 National Champions - LSUTigerBand85
