Rating: 7 Grade: 12th Grade Comments: I gave the past school year a seven (7) since working virtually as most of us were working parents were being laid off, children became full-time caretakers, food shortages prevalent and support from relatives waned due to the frightening consequences of Covid 19.
Rating: 3 Grade: Kindergarten Comments: I have completed 7 courses without a hitch. I am know having trouble getting my instructor to grade my work and the course expired waiting for her to grade my last 4 assignments. This is rediculous. I emailed help desk and I have heard nothing. There is no phone number so you can't even call anyone. I am very disappointed at this time. I worked 113 hours on this class and no what? Be ware.
Rating: 3 Grade: 5th Comments: I wish you folks could give us a break with the deadlines. We have had to take SO many other PD's to help us with getting through this period of distance learning. I hope you may answer. If I purchased another class, a one unit (at this point) would you give me a further extension than just 2 months? I am only 30% done with one class and another 3 point class waiting in the wings. Please write me back. My current teacher has not responded to my email. [email protected]
Rating: 9 Grade: 6-12 Comments: I would like to know why it is taking my instructor so much time to grade my final? I am 1 credit behind reaching the next pay tier. I finished a class the 9th, 20th and recently the 25th. The syllabi says 72 hours. I have reached out to the teacher for the 9th. Please resolve. Unacceptable. This was done in the last two classes I finished as well.
Rating: 9 Grade: 10, 11 Comments: Good evening, Happy Thanksgiving Weekend! My name is Danny Hauger, and I host a weekly podcast interviewing outstanding educators, Inspiring Teachers, where we explore the "why" of teaching and spotlight a national guest in the field of education. We are looking for program funding to support this continued endeavor, we have recorded over 65 episodes without a commercial sponsor to this point, and are seeking a partner to help us release this continued archive of outstanding educational content. Would Education 4 Equity support us for $20 per week for a 30-second commercial reading of PSAs? Thanks for all you do! Here is a link to an episode sample. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRSUcTlfyi4&t=1s Please contact me if you have any questions!
Rating: 5 Grade: This past year I taught 4th grade multiple subjects. Comments: I gave this academic year a score of a 5 because the administration gave little support for behaviors and the school environment between staff and students was very stressful.
Rating: 9 Grade: I teach 8th grade math. Comments: I had experiences with students this year that truly changed my life, but I couldn’t give it a ten because that leaves no room for improvement.
Rating: 6 Grade: I teach 4th grade. Comments: It was a rough year because I was displaced. I was fortunate enough to find a permanent position in the middle of the school year.
Rating: 1 Grade: I teach 1st grade. (20 years teaching) Comments: I purchase my own supplies but I’m accustomed to that. It was a 1 because I had a nightmare class. Full of behavioral problems and had minimal support from administrators. I was unable to teach my class as I would’ve liked to. I feel like I failed the 10 great kids because of the out of control 15. I also received my first death threat.????. I was a disastrous year ????
