What are good classroom norms to estbalish with students at the beginning of the school year?
My district is looking for suggestions on ways to modify our special ed program. Ours is making life hard for our general ed classrooms. Does your district have a model you would suggest?
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.
Friends with smaller classrooms and 25 + students, can you send pics or give some suggestions of your favorite desk layouts? I need new ideas please! (Don’t be fooled by the picture, it’s much smaller than it seems).
Do you have a place where you're able to lock up your stuff in your classroom? I don't and I'm not sure if I should make a big deal about it.
We as teachers are not supposed to tell our students what to think, we are supposed to teach our students how to think. To do this, we need to try our best to keep our political opinions and our personal thoughts on issues out of the classroom.
Why do you teach? What gifts and talents do you bring to your classroom, your school, the profession?
Thinking back to when I was in school. What do teachers have to do now that they didn't 20-30 years ago? What do they need to provide now that they did not have to provide back then? I don't recall buying anything than pencils/paper/folders. We covered our used books with newspaper or paper bags Classrooms were simple, not every inch of wall space was covered in charts, etc. The districts/teachers supplied nothing extra. What changed that teachers have to spend their own $ now?
How do you spend the last day of school after the kids have gone home and you have locked up your classroom for summer?
Has anyone else been threatened with punishment or suspended for saying you don't believe in abortion in the classroom or saying you don't think people should be forced to wear masks in the classroom?
I teach in a behavior focused classroom and my goal is to help students regulate their emotions and function in a general education classroom. Any tips for getting those gen ed teachers on board?

As a male mid-level/senior associate, can you take the full parental leave (10-14 weeks) and come out without impact on partnership prospects? What are questions I should be asking to get at this issue before accepting a lateral offer? Quiz recent junior partners with kids? Seems a bit aggressive but may be necessary.
EY 🐠 - Are there any issues with dad's taking the full 16 weeks for parental leave? It says primary care givers only. Thanks!
Anyone at West Monroe willing to chat? Applying to the experienced consultant position for healthcare.
Anyone heard of an agency called taxi? They reached out but I can’t find many people that work there on LinkedIn. Thoughts on the agency/ culture?
I don't understand the obsession of always having your camera on on Zoom, especially when people call you out on it in front of a group. Or maybe I'm just weird
Is there a skype status for “Don’t talk to me"
Does anyone have any tips on how to make the best out of Amtrak? Is there any use for the points? Also does anyone have a seat alert tool for trains if you want to know if bus class becomes available?
This has probably been brought up before, but has anyone left big consulting for a startup boutique firm? Thoughts, comments, points of concern?
I need some input from experienced people. New technology consultant here (UK based), which competency has the most promising future (salary&progression): data and analytics, SAP, oracle, salesforce..
MD or MBA? I got into both. I know most will say choose the MD, but hear me out: MD: I'd have to go into a specialty to have a good IRR given my salary & the $200K+ debt. By the time I'd be done with residency the US may be in a single payer system. US doctors make 3x the amount in France and 2x vs UK.. I currently make what a doctor makes in France. That could be the future here, too. MBA: 1 yr. Europe. I'd make about 15-20% more vs. now.
Has anyone ever traveled with their small dog when they had to travel for a project? I would probably be taking the Amtrak not flying
