After all the things happening in US how are you folks on H1B looking at Canada Express Entry? Are most of you giving IELTS? And hows the score been overall ? I know the cutoff is over 440 as of now..

Yep - Canada is very similar to US and my plan was to come back to the US after getting a Canadian passport on TN visa or h1b and green card if my priority date becomes current.

Thought about Australia, but that’s too far away from friends and family - plus expensive process too

A colleague in my team is going through H1 issues. She's 39. Is she eligible?

Definitely eligible. But people over 30 lose certain points per year. Not exactly sure how many points per year over 30, but might be hard to get to the cutoff score

Age is key. I am just over 30 (31) and it made a huge difference to score. Hence switched to my wife as primary applicant (she is 29) and we are now in the final stage. Waiting for ITA submission approval.

Also, work ex has no value!!! My spouse is a PhD candidate with 1 yr teaching work ex and she got the same score as me on that category. I technically have ~8 years work ex with big 4's in the US

So my friend close to 40 should not even consider applying.

It's free to get a rough estimate on scores. Use that to decide...

What D1 said. Use a calculator online and get an estimate for CRS

I work at a high school teaching special education and I’m tasked with addressing the math needs of all of the SPED students. Right now, they’re all on Imagine Math, an online program that teaches them based on their ability level. The problem is, very few of them take it seriously as there is no accountability with it so no learning is being done.

Does anyone know of a fun and interactive math curriculum that would meet the needs of students of various ability levels (about grades 4-8)?
