Any ideas for a more fun or interesting way to revisit classroom rules and procedures when the new semester starts? I don't want to just stand up and lecture these high schoolers. I know they hate it!

I’m looking for some elementary teachers who want to exchange letters written by students. Letters need to be read by the teacher before being sent to make sure they are school appropriate.

I started the school year with a class of 12 self-contained students (FR and SF mixed class) math class. Slowly, but surely, my roster bubbled to 17. Since we are all virtual instruction, I said to myself, it's OK. Now, we learned we are going back to the classroom in March, and my room is very small, set for 12 students max? In addition, I only have one teacher's aid, who just told me that she is dyslexic and can't help me too much. I am getting nervous as the days go by! Any suggestions?

I feel like the usual consulting exit messaging to new employers used to be “need to get off the road”. For those exiting during the pandemic, how are you phrasing the decision to exit to potential employers? My concern with saying something like “need improved work-life balance” is that it equates to “I want to work less hard” given that many companies allow remote work right now which blurs the hours of operation. Am I overthinking this?

While everyone’s situation is unique, it appears to me that there is a general (and substantive) difference between the mindset of senior execs/partners (Gen Xers) and the Gen Z/Millennial troops as to the need to head back to the office. There is a world of difference between “the office” as code for “client lunches, rounds of golf” vs “needless commuting time that will eat into a working day that is already unsustainable”. Do you feel your organization is in touch with where you are?
