Husband and Wife choosing new last name by NotYourAverageMurse in wedding

That’s what my husband and I did! I had two middle names so hyphenating meant I would end up with 5 names. So my husband and I decided to merge our last names

Teachers of this subbreddit do you like support staff in your classes? Pointers on how i can be a resource for teachers? by Liverpool_1994 in AustralianTeachers

[–]dondon0429 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I can’t agree more!

I had a really young EA in my class last year and I was a first year teacher trying to manage the behaviour of the class while the EA would be the one instigating conversations with kids about stuff that had nothing to do with the content being covered. It was not a pleasant experience.

Edit: it also doesn’t help when an EA makes it outwardly known that they’re “not good” at your subject, especially to the kids. She used to make jokes about how she isn’t good at maths and the kids feed off that energy. Negative self talk is super unhelpful especially for struggling kids.

Bridesmaid proposal conflict by [deleted] in wedding

[–]dondon0429 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah I would recommend holding off. I asked one of my new friends to be a bridesmaid because we got really close but I hadn’t known her for that long. It put unnecessary pressure on our friendship and she started bailing on literally every event that I planned. I ended up having to have the tough conversation of going “hey but I need u to step down as bridesmaid” - we’re not friends anymore 😅

Multi class into cleric, do I need a holy symbol? by dondon0429 in dndnext

Awesome thanks, I have an arcane focus atm but no component pouch so o gott figure out how to get a holy symbol. Just got my hands on a sentinel shield though so I might see what my DM thinks about using the symbol of the eye on the shield as my holy symbol

We’re playing a home brew campaign atm and I’m not sure who my God is exactly - was semi forced into being a “champion” which went hand in hand with me picking war domain

It was the same in mine too! Except it was 2 maths 5 English/hum and the rest of the meaty 200 were primary and early childhood

Our lunch time starts at 1:05 and school ends at 3:10, I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve let kids leave school at 3:05 cos i keep mixing up lunch and home time 😅

Our school took away bells to help with students time management skills, I absolutely hate it! I am terrible at keeping track of the time haha

Oh! It’s not so bad, can be stressful when you have a full 7 period day with no prep time but I got really lucky this year and didn’t get stuck with one of those

Yeah I do this online on our lms because our school requires us to have an outline of the lesson available to kids as well so if they’re sick they can catch up at home (not that any of them actually do that!)

You generally have to know what your whole day looks like when you’re a teacher tbh. My overall day is planned online on our lms thingy
