    I have a couple quick questions that I am posting on behalf of my cousin. My cousin and her family may be relocating to Tennessee for her husband's work. She has been doing some research on the school system there since she has been told that it is a bit different then here in Ontario. She...
  6. Toddler & Child
    We're always told that school teachers have a tough job, but until we find ourselves in charge of a classroom full of kids, we won't understand how tough that job truly is. Last fall, when my youngest child left home for all-day Kindergarten, I decided to try my hand at substitute teaching. I...

    My 13 year old daughter has been bullying another girl in her class for awhile apparently. The other child finally snapped and beat up my daughter during lunch at school. I'm furious because my child is physically hurt. She came home with a black eye among other bruises. But I'm also upset that...
  11. Toddler & Child
    Teaching, like parenting, can be a thankless job. It's also a calling. Like us, teachers spend their days answering questions, quelling fears, wiping noses, and helping students discover who they want to be. They expose children to the world, and inspire them to believe in themselves. Just as...
  12. Toddler & Child
    Teachers have chosen to dedicate their professional lives to equipping our kids with the tools and skills to succeed in life. But, despite the hours every week that they spend with our children, teachers and parents are like two ships in the night, only meeting occasionally to discuss report...

    Hi all! New to the forum, and will soon be new to the Bay Area :) We're moving with our five year old son, and are hoping to enroll him in a public school - however, we'd like him to experience a more project-based / child-centered / hands-on learning environment. Are there any public schools...
