I get this from a couple parents right before the end of every grading period. I just remind the parents that their child had opportunities to bring grades up but chose not to, and the grade is what was earned.

The student actually tried to put his name on a model extra credit assignment I gave and tried to submit the same assignment under two different assignments…when I queried him about it. With his parents there, he couldn’t explain it; and the parents claimed he has accomodations and EFS issues and can’t ask for help…..I found it to be unethical…but didn’t use that term….and the parents just wanted to move beyond that to find out how he could get his grade up. Can you believe that?!

What were the best baby gifts you’ve received upon delivery? My friend and I were both TTC together. I’m still going but her baby is due this week.

I’m pregnant with my first child. It’s early, but I’m already dreading telling my project leadership since I’m a key player on my account & I also got promoted. The client is heavily reliant on me. When’s the soonest I should tell them? I’m assuming after the 12-13 week mark...

My sister is 28, a manager at a retail store, works ridiculous hours & weekends, and generally is unhappy. I suspect depression. She didnt finish college and hasnt pursued her passion (fashion/pro styling) I try to encourage her when we talk and it comes up, but she hasn’t pursued it and remains in the retail job (she’s worked retailed forever) If she was happy and loved it I wouldn’t care, but it saddens me to see her unhappy. I realize I can’t make her take action, but what *is* my role here?

Those who invested for 10+ years in 529. How are the returns? My kid is 4 and started 529(Ohio plan) 2 years ago. I live in TX. Wondering whether to put in 529 or index to maximize returns.


What is the maternity leave policy of PWC and for how many children it is available?

Two teenagers. Both starting (remote) school in the morning.

As is typical for interactions with teens, I feel like speaking with them about their upcoming school year is as enjoyable as running head-first into a brick wall.


Granddaughter just accepted her first position in education as a para II. She supports one student but when that student is absent, she asked to help others. She asked me for advice about supporting a kindergarten autistic student that has just arrived from India and does not speak English and neither do parents. He is not aggressive but will refuse to move from task to task. What would be your advice?

So, when parents only care about grades, your thoughts on grades for self esteem verses earning for character and integrity?

So the public unions have tried to divert funds for new students, wishing to attend private schools in Calif... any other states preventing school choice?

How have you approached your administration about pay when your pay is lower then the public schools in the area?

I like the atmosphere. It is gentle. We don't rush through our day. You are supported.
I wish it paid more.


What do you all think about private school? Pros? Cons?
