also happy teacher appreciation day/week/whatever

hope y'all enjoy the token gestures your ptso or whatever gives you. i had a baggie with some tootsie rolls and bubble gum in my box yesterday, righteous.

i'm quite possibly leaving the profession at the end of this school year. taking a year off, at the very least. i will miss the several kids whom i made a difference for, but there is a lot of grind, stress, anxiety, frustration before you see that payout. i'm not sure it's worth it.

never heard of LEAPS but i make bank with my summer camp. i get some other teacher friends onboard, put flyers up at the school i work at, and get like 30 kids @$280/week. only need to do ~4 weeks and i'm way set all summer with savings+life & travel expenses.

so LEAPS is a tennessee thing but i would imagine most states have funding for after-school supervision/activities which would include summer stuff

Summer school or camps is definitely the way to go.

I also add more skype coaching in summer. I tend to work as much or more in summer than I do during the year.

I'm presenting at a conference as well.

Our teacher appreciation week comes during state testing and is always the week my kids turn into end of the year assholes so it’s hard to feel appreciated this week.

I haven't but a friend of mine has been doing that as his main gig for a while now. I'll try to find the name of the company.

Are there any boarders working in private schools that could put me in touch with the admin?

I would like to set up summer study abroad programs for Chinese students but have been having trouble getting in touch at the few places I tried contacting in my home town.

Not limited to the US, the UK, Australia, or Canada would definitely be workable too.

Digital Publishing AG is the company with their platform: https://www.speexx.com/home/

I don't know anything about them or the process but my friend is still working with them so seems to be going well.

I'm teaching a summer writing camp for middle schoolers... It's on interactive fiction :geek:

We're using Twine and it's going SO WELL. I'm spending my evening trying to figure out how to do RNG encounters using JavaScript... But you can also keep it very basic.

If any of my fellow English teachers are lucky enough to teach a creative writing class I'd highly recommend it. I could give more info/examples if you PM.

The online teaching esl thing is kind of annoying. There is an online interview w a mock lesson then two more mock lessons. The pay is good but it’s kind of an annoying process

Hmm. I think a lot of them have read of mice and men. It seems like a few may read hous on mango street too based on random teachers websites of the high school the kids are coming from.
