1st year SPED teacher here, If you had $700 to spend on your classroom what would you get?? I don't know what I am missing out on. :)
I will be teaching Chemistry this year in a modular classroom with no lab area. Any suggestions on virtual labs? We have chromebooks at ourvschool.
How do you schedule video office hours using Google classroom and Google Meet? I feel so lost here..
As an interventionist, I work with many grade levels and students. Looking for the best way to document data and information along with how to share the information with classroom teachers & parents.
Is anyone else teaching from a trailer this year? They are building a bigger school, so I hope to have a regular classroom next year.
What is the purpose of a flipped classroom? Some teachers are doing their lessons via video so the kids are prepped before class. Then, what do they do in class?
I found this article and wondered what people here thought about it. It deals with teacher licensing tests. Among other things, it presents the case for a positive correlation between performance on a licensing test and performance in the classroom. It also argues there is an outsized number of teachers (over 50%) that don’t pass the licensing test on the first try. Any newer teachers out there who can weigh in on their teacher prep program and the licensing test experience? https://www.nctq.org/publications/Driven-by-Data:-Using-Licensure-Tests-to-Build-a-Strong,-Diverse-Teacher-Workforce/
This year my school is having us incorporated a “peace table/area” into our classroom for students. Anyone have any ideas of what I could put in my peace area? or have this in their classroom?
With the possibility of schools closing, does anyone have a recommendation for a classroom alternative? Either on-line, or a good home schooling program?
What is the legal ratio of adults:students in an ECSE inclusion setting? In a reverse mainstream setting? Are Title I PreK classrooms required to have a para and teacher? What is the ratio for that? What is the legal ratio of adults:students in a mixed 4 y/o PreK setting? (#___ SPED+ #___regular=1 teacher and ____paras) Specifically in Louisiana, but curious about other states, as well!
Is anyone else feeling extra anxious about starting this year? I’m almost 20 years at the same site, and I have fears that I’ve lost my skills while going through the pandemic. I’m scared I won’t be able to classroom manage now that classes will be back to full sized and that I will have a mask on.
I am new to RR this year. I am excited about this new journey and created this group to hear advice and tips for classroom setup, organization, and time management. Thanks to all who comment!
Has anyone had success with using a wireless doorbell in their classroom? Thinking about trying it with 5th grade. Thoughts?
Any suggestions on science or social studies curriculum to use in a self-contained (setting 4) EBD classroom?
I’m getting my first classroom as a special educator! What are some things that you love having in your classroom (favorite books, favorite activities, posters, decor, organization tools, anything!)?
How much would you spend on an average dress that you could wear to the office? Like under a blazer or cardigan
Any consultants on the Tier 2 General visa who ended up working from outside UK? Accenture wouldn't approve the request to work remotely, so I did it for 60 days anyway but I'm worried if it would impact my ILR application.
How does an MHA look when applying to larger consulting firms (MBB,big4, etc.) ? I don’t have an MBA but I do have 2.5YOE in healthcare consulting and an MHA degree . Can I start out past the entry associate level?
I have a huge crush on an recently-hired intern. I’m married and twice as old. I would never act on it. But.... swoon
Which Big 4 has the best MySpace practice?
Honest question. When a client asks you a question that you need to refer to the billing attorney (assume it makes sense to do so and copy the client on convo in adding them in) are you all refraining from using the term billing attorney to clarify a role or is it pretty common to do so in client communications? Had one attorney show a sensitivity to the term but never had that happen before. Wondering if that is a common or uncommon sinsitivity?
Looking for honest and positive advice please. Have an offer for D which is 165K TC (SC level) but was recently promoted at the SA level (125K TC) with an incredible team and relationship. Would it be worth leaving an amazing team and positive culture so soon? I’d essentially be starting from scratch from a relationship perspective. For background, I have 2 YOE in Cloud.
What's the salary range for a Senior Associate 2 in PwC AC Management Consulting Vertical?
Hi everyone! I will be going through my first whiteboard/case-style interview for the first time (I was converted from an intern to full time at my current company). This marketing associate position would require some level of excel knowledge specifically on Pivot Tables & VLookUps for email campaign analysis. What’s your experience with interviews like these, and any tips for a first-timer? Thank you in advance!
Everyone thinks I’m knowledgeable with Excel. But all I started doing was wondering if I can automate a process, and then using Google to find the formula. But now when people come to me for Excel help, they don’t know that I just google it for them. Funnily enough, this has actually helped me become somewhat knowledgeable in Excel, but I still Google everything lol
At what point do you talk salary with a recruiter? Want to get it out of the way because if expectations aren’t in line no point in continuing discussions, but don’t want to bring it up too soon?
Hi, Consulting Moms! I need advice - I am leaving industry to return to consulting. I have offers from KPMG and Deloitte, and we are looking to start a family ASAP (we have been actively trying and I have a feeling it would be just my luck to start a new job and find out I’m pregnant). Would love your insight around personal experience with hours per week, work-life balance, culture, etc. Offers are same level/role/scope (Change Management / Transformation / Human Capital) and same salary. TY!
For those who are jumping to another Big4, or know someone who has and are interviewing with all the Big4, who is paying the best right now? I’ve referred friends to PwC, but they are getting outbid by kpmg for similar positions by like $25k a year. Anyone else seeing this?
Are there jobs in advertising (or out for that matter) where taking vacation time doesn't feel bad?
My dad is generally supportive of me, but downplays my accomplishments and treats my confidence like arrogance. He barely acknowledges my wins and can be slightly (but not overly) negative. He does say he’s proud of me once in a while, but I do feel like my feelings are often invalidated. For what it’s worth, he’s an Asian dad and will always see me as his kid rather than an adult. Any advice? I try not to seek approval, but I do live with my parents (moved out then back in due to COVID)
