School or No School

Hi Everyone, I have a dilema that has come up recently. I decided to take online classes. The first one I really enjoyed and did not have trouble finding time for it. I now am in the second class, and instead of 3 assignments a week I have betwen 5 and 7. The teacher even has homework due on Saturdays and Sundays. In my spare time I work at a photography studio three times a week. I also volunteer and have many mom's groups I attend. I just want to know your thoughts on school and whether I should continue it, or postpone it again? I...

Returning to Public School for Grades 7-12 but I Have Fears

My daughter is very smart and will do best in the PreAP/AP program. I enrolled her in Christian school because I want her to have a faith and I wanted her to come out of her shell.

Are/were You a Teacher?

I am thinking about going back to school to become an Elementary School Teacher. If you are/were a teacher, were you satisfied with your career choice? Anything you'd change?

How Does Your PTA/PTO Work with the Principal?

I have just begun a term as co-president on our elementary PTA and we're wondering how things work at other schools. Do you work closely with the principal, or is s/he likely to be more hands off and let the PTA do its thing? Long story short, we are trying very hard to change the way PTA does things, to be more inclusive, informative, and to make it very easy to get involved. We're running into stumbling blocks in the front office because our principal is very cautious and slow to change -- everything has to go to committee and takes...
