Is anyone familiar with using Canvas for your classroom? Likes/Dislikes? Bonus points for uses in intermediate grade levels. 😉
Happy New Year! Although just a change of a digit on the calendar, the fact that we’ve rotated around the sun gives people inspiration for change. What new or altered mindset or actions will you be bringing into your classroom in 2021? 🤩
First year PPCD teacher looking for some helpful tips/advice on classroom centers. Gross/fine motor skills ideas, games, etc? What can I use?
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 a mixed 4 y/o PreK setting? (#___ SPED+ #___regular=1 teacher and ____paras) Specifically in Louisiana, but curious about other states, as well!
What is the biggest drawback of leaving the classroom to become an administator? I'm thinking of finally using my admin license.
What’s the best thing you’ve done for your classroom management? I teach 10th grade English. I’m young and look younger than I am. Next year will be my 3rd year teaching. My classroom management was better this year but still want to improve. Learning how to be firm and consistent without being mean.
The worst thing you ever said by accident in front of a classroom full of students that was not a curse. GO!
End of Year Sign Out Poll: I’m curious how many teachers are required to: give up their keys at the end of the year even when they’re returning, clean out their classroom even when they’re returning, do intensive cleaning/janitorial duties before signing out, or other ridiculous procedures? (My answer in comments)
I get mistaken as a student at the school I work at. How can I establish my authority in the classroom as well as on campus?
Hi there! I attended a virtual robotics workshop last week. I learned a lot and especially enjoyed connecting with others who were using robots in their classroom. I hope you join the discussion and we can find a way to support each other.
Just sharing a few of my doors. You can save them to your phone and use them in your Bitmoji classrooms.
We have had an extremely tough start to the year. I am second guessing my decision to continue teaching (year 20). What are some options for teachers that don’t involve the classroom or direct sale
Has anyone tried having a flipped classroom? I read that it reduces the amount of homework/work students have to do outside of class.
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.
So how do you feel the consulting life is impacting your wellness as you hop over the age of 40, I’m finding under Covid I’m much more healthy/lost weight etc.
What are your plans for the holiday weekend? I'm currently at home watching Chernobyl (I'd highly recommend the show for anyone looking to replace their GoT fix).
What’s a typical MBB exit for someone with 1.5 YOE at MBB? In terms of salary for strategy roles. I’m thinking ~130?
Most awkward Uber stories? My uber driver showed me a picture of her baby. Um, it was a doll.
The post earlier today about a sick baby and a bad manager hasn't left my mind. Tonight, I found the article linked in the comments. Fellow mamas, don't let this be you. This hit me hard.
I see a lot of consultants leaving for FAANG. But if the grass is truly more green, what drives some folks from FAANG to move into consulting? Especially a Big 4…
Curious to know which airline frequent flyer programs fellow LAX travelers have status with. I’ll go first: Delta Platinum, Alaska MVP Gold 75K, and United Silver here
Interested to hear any success stories about M&A attorneys at middle market firms (firm is 600+ but is regional and only does middle market transactions) and from an unranked law school finding an M&A in house role. I want to go in house but can’t fathom doing commercial transactions for the rest of my career but M&A in house gigs for obvious reasons tend to be at Fortune 500 companies that almost always require top credentials. Should I give up? Is my resume just going to the shredder?
Hello fishes, How is the WLB, yearly hike, promotions in NTT data, HR told me that they dont give any bonus. How is the growth for SAP?
Attempting to lateral between Big 4's to switch practice lines. Not sure how to explain why I don't just stay at my current firm and work with the group that does the type of work I'd like to do - truth is I briefly worked with them and loved the work but couldn't stand working with the team members at all. Is a sufficiently explained 'not a cultural fit' adequate here? Will they even care? I also doubt my practice line would approve the transfer since we're understaffed.
Tips for building a client facing product roadmap? The client is in the financial industry. All help super appreciated 🙏🏽
Not having my career outlook until mid July. Is there anyway to find out my compensation before hand given they go into effect today
Hi 🐠! My firm is willing to file an EB3 GC for me, however I’m from a highly backlogged country and was wondering what’s the realistic timeline for it from start to finish? The process seems to be stressful, to say the least. Alternatively, I have the ability to venture out into Canada (as I’m yet to pursue my MBA, after which I plan on pivoting into a diff. industry). What would you do?
Some call it quitting on your team, U.S. Gymnastics are calling it mental health issues. I'm calling it something more specific related to sports psychology: the yips. It's bad athletic performance having the yips, but when continuing can turn you into the next Elena Mukhina, backing out is the right call. Alternate history: Simone continues on, manages not to break her neck, but absolutely s**ts the bed and is criticized for taking the US off the podium when knew she wasn't on her game.
Are the layoffs finished? Or are they still going on? I am trying to figure out if I in the green for now.
Howdy fish, currently interviewing at KPMG for a associate role in major projects advisory. I’ve gone through the phone screening and the interview with 2 directors. Next interview is with 2 SM. What kind of questions can I expect in that interview?
How do salary increases work at Big 4 if you come in an experienced hire? For example if I switch firms as an SA at 130k salary, what can I expect as an increase the next year since I’m not on the normal comp structure?
