I don’t think we should trust these people with classroom advice… Welcome back to Teachers Off Duty! This week our hosts Bri Richardson, Gabe Dannenbring, and Jess Smith share stories of the worst unsolicited advice they've been given.  As teachers, we are constantly bombarded with well-meaning but misguided advice. From "just get another job if you're unhappy" to "you need to strictly enforce classroom rules" these suggestions may seem like the solution to our problems, but are they really? And should we trust these people’s opinions for how to run our classroom? Another common piece of advice is to be stricter with students to improve their behavior. But is being a strict teacher really the key to proper classroom management? We discuss the effects of strict discipline on students and share alternative methods that can actually lead to better behavior. Building relationships with students is often seen as the key to a successful classroom, but what does that even really mean? We share our strategies for building genuine connections with students and how it has positively impacted our teaching. We've all been guilty of staying late at school to finish grading papers or lesson planning, but is that really the best use of our time? Taking care of yourself outside of school hours is extremely important, so this week we're giving some self help tips for teachers.   Jump right to it! 2:35 Teaching Fashion Fails  7:15 Grade Inflation Pressure 13:45 The Teaching Marathon 18:20 Classroom Emergency Repairs 24:00 Admin vs. Teacher Dynamics 30:50 Coping with Classroom Meltdowns 36:30 Redefining Educational Norms   Trust us, we know what we're talking about, so listen to our advice on this week's episode of Teachers Off Duty.

You would not believe some of the hectic and hormonal things we’ve seen middle schoolers do. From giggling at textbook questions to making roaches class pets, they have some unhinged tendencies. But it’s not all bad, we also have our fair share of heartwarming stories to share about our middle school students.    Teaching middle school is not for the faint of heart, it takes patience, resilience, and perseverance. Although we like to stay positive, middle school is a rough time for these students and teaching them comes with its own set of challenges. But don’t you worry, if you’re struggling right now, were going to share our tips and tricks on how we handle these situations   With this all being said however, teaching middle school also comes with plenty of rewards. There is no better feeling than seeing your students grow and succeed in their goals. So tune in as we share the lighter side of teaching our middle schoolers.    3:25 - Tween’s Emotional Rollercoasters 8:40 - Teaching Triumphs & Trials 15:15 - Classroom Hilarity Ensues 21:05 - Hormonal Havoc Tactics 28:30 - Sanity Saving Strategies   So prepare to cringe and celebrate with our educators on this week's episode of Teachers Off Duty.   ______________________________________________________________ Teachers Off Duty Podcast by Bored Teachers

Ex boyfriends and rogue bats… It's been a weird news day   Welcome back to Teachers Off Duty! This week our hosts Bri Richardson, Devin Siebold, and James Yon unpack the weirdest teachers of the news, that you have to see to believe.    Sick days are hard to come by, but luckily for this teacher, while battling cancer, his fellow teachers came to his rescue. Although it's a heartwarming story of comradery between peers, should he have to take his friends sick days?   While most teachers seem to have bad luck, a small group of teachers in Kentucky managed to win the lottery! To make it even better they had plans to donate the money to their school, but we can't help but wonder if we would have been so generous.   In a turn of events we found a teacher in the news that was forced to resign after her ex-boyfriend maliciously sent some things to her school officials! Is it fair for this teacher to lose her job due to someone else's actions?    Speaking of stressful situations, we found a story about a bat on the playground, but not the sports kind, the animal kind. This flying rodent created a massive commotion, causing far more chaos than we ever imagined possible.   Jump right to it! 3:45 - Unbelievable Teacher Wins Lottery 10:02 - Cancer Battle and Recovery 16:30 - Bizarre Schoolyard Bat Infestation 22:50 - Classroom Heroics Revealed 29:35 - Transition to Comedy Tours 35:20 - Spiciest Teacher Gossip Unleashed 41:45 - Balancing Teaching and Dreams 47:59 - Unexpected Twists in Teaching Careers   So join us on Teachers Off Duty for an episode chock full of spicy after school teacher drama!  
Are notebook grenades a thing now!? Welcome back to Teachers Off Duty! Join Bri Richardson, Devin Siebold, and James Yon in this ‘Crying in My Car Podcast’ crossover where there’s no holding back on the craziest classroom chaos stories! Like teaching isn’t hard enough, we have chaos slowing down our lessons like one kindergartner who glued her crayons under her desk on the first day, to another student who was so annoyed by the lack of story time that they threw all their clothes off to make his displeasure make a statement. Remember when we asked our student to share his milk with the class - right, because we didn’t! Just imagine the snap back to reality during an actual peaceful day when out of nowhere a student decides to turn into a human fountain, spitting milk on his classmates directly behind him. Sometimes we’re just asking for it like the time when a science experiment went all kinds of wrong by completely filling the lab with bubbles. Not the kind of rave we’re hoping for. Speaking of science, you won’t believe what a student brought from home to “enhance” a biology lesson. It wasn’t *so* bad until it decided to go home early! You just got to hear it to believe it.   Jump right to it! 5:22 – Unfortunate Milk Mishaps 11:45 – Teacher Influenced Chaos 17:30 – Detention Reflection 22:15 – Bookshelf Blunders 28:40 – We Shouldn’t Laugh but… 33:50 – No More Story Time! 39:25 – Actual Classroom Scars   But there’s more - how could we prepare ourselves for a student starting a conga line during a math test. Imagine stepping out for just a second and returning to  the surprise of a full blown makeshift carnival being run in your classroom. Whoof, there’s not enough coffee to get us through that. So order that venti, take the long way to school, and tune into this week’s Teachers Off Duty! Maybe that math test conga line wasn’t such a bad idea…

Gen Z's sass meets classroom brass…. Welcome back to Teachers Off Duty with our hosts KC Mack, HonestTeacherVibes: Bri Richardson, and the Angry Gym Teacher, Tom Filline! Let’s have a real talk about Gen Z. They’re just built different. What is up with these snack smugglers and TikTok pre-stars?  Maybe we shouldn’t cry or laugh at the hilarious yet frustrating reality of teaching Gen Z students who don't know how to do a simple signature. It's a skill we often take for granted, but for this new generation, it's a foreign concept. Maybe they figured out a better way? Signatures stump them but we’re the ones lost at their new language that we can barely keep up with. And it's not just in the hallways, it's in the classroom too. From slang to memes, it's like a whole new language that we have to learn. And speaking of not keeping up with, we argue with KC about the infamous "shoe crease" dilemma. These kids refuse to change into their PE shoes because they don't want to crease them. He says he gets the issue, us not so much…..  Drink some hot tea to prepare to yell “WORLDSTAR!” at the next teacher debate because it might just hit the internet. Who knew there was a whole wave of Gen Z students starting "fight pages" on social media. It's a disturbing trend that’s taking off - one page even got a brand deal….  But it's not just the students who can be a handful. There was a teacher trying to bully a student who was bullying others. She thought it would hold up a mirror to their actions but that’s just not the route to take bestie.  It’s not always crazy, sometimes its outright HILARIOUS. From "Mrs. Funny Face" to "Mr. Cool" to “[REDACTED]”, these nicknames humble us real quick. 2:37 - Chalk Dust Confessions Begin 5:45 - Gen Z Hooligan Behavior 10:03 - Social Media Meets Syllabus 15:15 - Teaching Tech: Hit or Miss? 20:47 - Third Grader Mystery Story 25:58 - Behind Teacher's Lounge Doors 30:42 - Latest Tea on Teaching Fads Besties!

Join our hosts, KC Mack, The Angry Gym Teacher: Tom Filline, and HonestTeacherVibes herself: Bri Richardson. (Crowd goes wild!!) Teaching can be loud and chaotic, just the volume in the hallway is enough to make any teacher want to scream. But the louder the teachers scream, the louder the kids will be. It's a never-ending cycle of noise. 🍎 Featured Stories: Ring, Alexa, and a Rolex? Imagine teaching a reading group when the classroom phone rings, Alexa mistakenly orders a luxury watch…. "Thank goodness for cancellations! Teacher salaries don’t allow for this!" Tornado Terrors: Picture this—100 kids and 5 teachers squeezed into a bathroom during a real tornado warning.

Note it for the record, my guy. Daily Overload: "I am trying to deliver a lesson, answer the phone, write a bathroom pass, get someone a pencil, check email, answer a question, solve a technology problem and hear an announcement at the SAME TIME all day every day...I am TIRED" We feel you bestie… Here's a hack for you bestie.... 2:45 - Detonating Rubber Duckies  7:30 - Teacher Car Confessions  12:20 - Pineapple Outfit Pandemonium 17:50 - Michael Jackson Dance-off 23:35 - Preschool Circle Survival 28:10 - Mayhem Management Secrets 👉 Tune in to laugh, and perhaps shed a tear with us on this episode!  ______________________________________________________________ Teachers Off Duty Podcast by Bored Teachers!

Who are the parent-teacher conferences even for!? Welcome back to Teachers Off Duty!  Join our hosts Mark Schumacher, KC Mack, and HonestTeacherVibes herself, Bri Richardson as they hold nothing back and spill the teacher tea of the drama that unfolds when overzealous parents meet questionable school policies. Could you believe a parent would actually sneak around and go through another students’ files? They just wanted to know what other students scores were so they knew their son’s “ranking”. Sure... That's tame compared to one parent who's child was serving an in-school suspension for having told his teacher to "[retracted]". His mother punished him by bringing him a Subway sandwich, cookies, and soda at lunch. It's not all ridiculous or infuriating. Just last week, a parent snuck a bottle of wine in with their child as a gift to their teacher. While we REALLY appreciate the gesture, we're not sure if this is the best way to say "thank you."  Can you guess in what state a parent would trade four wheels for four legs at the school pick-up? It was surely a sight to see and gives new meaning to ‘horsing around’ after the bell. Gallop, don't walk! This week's episode of Teacher's Off Duty will infuriate you, humble you, and probably having you feel better at your next parent-teacher conference.

Don't miss KC's nickname revelation, introducing us to "The Vaseline Queen." Might be better not to ask.... The crew shares a story about a student who comes back from lunch with a note from the school nurse claiming he has eggs in his hair, leading to a school-wide lice check.  To cap things off, Devin recounts his unforgettable encounter with a frozen pole, where he personally tested the myth and learned a lesson he'd never forget. Whether you're an educator, a parent, you won't want to miss these stories from the school nurse's office. We're sure you could relate to one or two...

I can’t believe they let that slide 10 years ago! Devin Siebold, KC Mack, and Bri Richardson are back at it again as they take us on a throwback to the olden days, comparing the things teachers could get away with back then compared to now! We've got a crazy classroom birthday tradition for you, where KC dishes out a story about a teacher who would do birthday spankings to their students on their birthdays.  If you think that wasn’t wacky enough, wait till you hear about the time where a teacher would punish students for chewing gum in class by placing it on their nose throughout the entire remainder of the class. Not gross enough? You asked for it… The trio dives into a dental operation ongoing in class where a 1st grade teacher helps a kid with a loose tooth by tying it with a string and yanking it out with the doorknob! There’s plenty more where that came from, so tap that play button and join us while we cringe, laugh, and reminisce on the crazy things teachers did back in the day! -- This episode is brought to you by: Wildgrain | Get $30 off your first box, plus free croissants in every box, when you go to Wildgrain.com/Teachers to start your subscription.

You're in for a ride.... KC recounts a love letter passed in class that praised "thick, not fat" thighs then the aftermath of rejection (and the effect on their grades) "Heartbreak ate my homework!" Remember that one time that Devin wrote a blog about WWE that stirred up some pretty wild drama with his teacher colleagues? If not, he'll distract you with a story about a student who went the extra mile, not for their homework, but for love by juggling multiple valentines. Your favorite part might just be HonestTeacherVibe’s hot take on the impact that social media has on our students these days and how it could lead into some unnecessary classroom drama.

We’re confronting classroom realities in education! Welcome back to the Teachers Off Duty Podcast. In today’s episode, hosts KC Mack, Bri Richardson, and Mike Rivera, will tackle pressing issues in the education system, sharing experiences and offering insights into what needs to change for the betterment of our schools. We will first delve into the topic of banned books in Florida libraries, questioning the implications of censorship on education. The conversation turns to the necessity of prioritizing students' needs over personal interests within the classroom. We then celebrate a positive shift as Mississippi schools take a significant step by increasing teacher salaries and focusing on hiring more educators, a crucial move for the improvement of educational quality. Next, we discuss how the increasing politicization of education is detracting from its true purpose. It's important to focus on the core issues impacting education and to remember that our primary role as educators is to provide the best possible learning experience for our students. Finally, we address the pervasive issue of over-testing in schools. We advocate for a balanced approach that reduces the stress of constant testing and instead focuses on equipping students with essential life skills. So join us in this insightful episode as we navigate through the complexities of the education system, aiming to foster positive changes for our teachers and students !

Bri kicks things off with a tale of football athletes fighting right in the middle of a school assembly! We dive into the chaos of breaking up a brawl and the unexpected roles we find ourselves in as educators. Mike takes us down memory lane with a throwback to when archery was part of the curriculum. We debate the pros and cons of such unconventional school activities, sharing our own wild experiences. Mike's got a story about a teacher who had an embarrassing experience searching up kittens falling from the ceiling mid-lesson. We talk about the wild unpredictability of teaching and how to navigate these unexpected classroom intrusions. And then there's the time a student decided to taste his shoe... Yes, it's as strange as it sounds. We share our own tales of student antics that left us scratching our heads. Mike hits us with another story about a police dog's surprise visit to his classroom, sniffing for drugs. Picture the scene: confused students, a bewildered teacher, and a dog on a mission. So, join us on Teachers Off Duty for an episode filled with surprises in the unpredictable world of teaching.

I'm a homeschooler and love you guys. Maybe if my kids had teachers more like you guys, he could have stayed in public school. Don't get me wrong, my son had a few great ones. However, the administration and school system itself would hold them back from being the kind of teachers they really wanted to be. And don't get me started on the ones always acting stuck up like they are better than everyone. Not just parents but to other teachers as well.

Great topic of discussion! Career and Technical Educators (CTE) are teaching financial literacy. As an agricultural educator, my students learn through their Supervise Agricultural Experiences where students explore careers and can even create their own businesses. Student can also job shadow and work in the industry and gain skills.
