S1E11: 'Behind' vs 'Normal' vs 'Gifted'?
Should we be holding students back? What do we do with students who are academically ahead of their peers? Join Coach Toni as she discusses the following anonymous submission: "Unpopular opinion: we need to go back to holding students back a grade if they do not show the requisite skills to move on, regardless of how it emotionally impacts them (this is the most common argument I hear against holding students back. I'm not encouraging that we emotionally hurt students). I'm getting really depressed reading reports about how many high school students can't read above a kindergarten level. I'm talking specifically about students that have spent elementary through high school in American public school systems. If they are falling behind, why push them on? Thoughts on the matter?"

S1E10: Are Teachers Over Being 'Voluntold' That They Need To Cover Another Class?
Is it worth it to give up your prep for the sake of covering another class? Are you in a school who 'Voluntells' (tells you its optional but you don't have a choice) you for coverages? What would a district have to pay you for you to accept loosing your prep and subbing for another class? Join Coach Toni as she discusses the following anonymous submission: "It’s getting really bad out here when teachers don’t even want the incentive pay to cover classes anymore. My district gives you $30 for every class you have to cover, but no one even volunteers anymore. It’s easy money right? Everyone is out, the money is untaxed, little to no prep…..but no, it’s not. Taking away my planning every single day for a few extra dollars just isn’t worth it anymore. I don’t have time to deal with another teacher’s kids, lose any time to make copies and prep for the day, or to lose the only moments peace I get all day. Sounds ungrateful, but everyone is TIRED. I was really hoping for a new semester pep-in-my-step but I am just as tired as I was before we left for holiday break. This year is something else."
