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!
I’m looking at the possibility of using Book Taco in my classroom. Has anyone used it? If so, what are your thoughts on it?
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).
Is anyone using Social Emotional Learning and Mindfulness in their classroom or school wide? Reading a book (cover attached) and I have so many things to discuss!!!
Hi All! I hope you guys are staying safe and healthy. I am hosting a free workshop for teachers that I thought might benefit you. The workshop is called From Unsettled to Prepared Classroom. I am giving you the tools you need to feel organized and ready for this upcoming school year. There is so much that is still uncertain and it can be super daunting to start to plan for a year like this one. You can sign up here: https://adva-hanan.mykajabi.com/pl/192080
There are several children in my classroom who keep having tech issues. How can I support them without taking away from instruction time?
I'm looking for thoughts around training (classroom and self paced) offered by your firm. How important is it to you. Do u really have time to take the training. Just curious
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?
How do you use technology in your classroom to teach math and ELA to SPED students? I will have 1 first grader, 4 second graders, and 2 third graders in my room at the same time for ELA.
Looking for (adaptive, preferably) educational technology for ELA to be used in classrooms as both enrichment for students identified as gifted as well as re-teaching, offering helpful support for students who struggle. Has anyone found anything that does both well? Looking especially for a tool that teachers can get behind and that students enjoy/find easy to use. What do you love? What do you hate? This would be targeted to grades 1-6 primarily, but it needs a high ceiling.
True or false: If you ran your classroom the way admin ran the school, you’d get endless complaints from students/parents.
I'm thinking of leaving the classroom to become a school counselor/social worker. What steps do I have to take?
I previously used Donors Choose to fundraise for my classroom but no longer can because they don’t cover private specialized schools (where I am now) What other sites have you used to fundraise?
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 need some classroom management ideas for middle school kiddos. I've tried everything in my bag of tricks and my students are constantly off task and disruptive.
One thing on my classroom wishlist is _________.
How do you manage breakfast when they eat it in class? I feel like my classroom is such a mess before it is even 9 a.m.
I firmly believe it should be a requirement for all administrators (from APs/principals to superintendent) go back into the classroom for 1 year after every 5 years in their current admin job.
Does anyone notice that their students are extra talkative since returning to the classroom? It makes sense and is natural, but sometimes I wish I had that mute button back! Is that bad?
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
Do all job apps require cover letters even if they don't ask for one? Many listings I've been applying only ask for a resume to be uploaded; should I still try to upload a cover letter along with resume?
I have flu like symptoms, but can’t get tested for covid and getting a doc appt seems impossible. Do I basically need to wait until I’m critical or extremely sick to see someone? Any experience here?
Can anyone @deloitte give feedback/advice in the below offer: Deloitte Digital Senior Consultant Chicago Client Strategy Group 140k base, 10k sign on Currently have 3yoe In-line or should I counter higher?
Mercury is wonderful. I tried to do my expense and time sheet today. It shows me no authorization. Best control !!!!
Had a meeting with my PML this morning. It was difficult to explain how I truly feel about working here and how I have no intention of retaking the CPA exam...
Interviewing for MBB...how do I spin my tech implementation experience to strategy consulting?
Currently a C with 2.5 YOE in PMO. Came in at the lower salary range and looking to take advantage of a hot market. Any companies hiring in Federal space?
Which option is better to pay for a flight? - 52000 United Miles - 35000 CSR points - $500 Trying to pick the best value option.
Rant: I interviewed at a mid size firm for Senior Tax Associate role and went really well. Partner calls after a couple days to say they want to offer me a job and asked me if I wanted senior 1 or 2. I said senior 2 since I have a years experience as a senior and she was okay with it and discussed salary. She said she will think about the final offer and let me know. A week later she comes back to tell me that my small firm experience probably won’t help much and it would be difficult for me...
Who recovered from COVID and how long did it take? What were your symptoms and how did it start? Did you have to be hospitalized?
Has anyone found the AWS Cloud Practitioner Certification to be helpful for people in non-technical roles? Any experience in how potential employers view this cert would be greatly appreciated!
Does industry usually drug test for marijuana? In a medical state w/ a script from a doc. If so, do I just bring my prescription with me as if it were Xanax/adderal/ etc?
Moms, I need advice. I’m one month in at D (previous consultant, spent last 5 years in industry as a leader of leaders) and came in at Mgr - and I *hate* it. I’m 13 weeks with our first and mat leave was a huge factor in coming to D, so feeling trapped. I spend more time dealing w/ asshole client SM (not my project SM) than doing work. My coach is great, but her advice was basically, “D is full of assholes 🤷🏻♀️, get used to it.” Is it too soon to leave? Especially pregnant? What to tell recruiters?
Am I crazy for thinking being a mom is harder than working in biglaw? I’m a mid level associate and FTM currently on maternity leave and the amount of sleeplessness over the past few weeks have convinced me my job is a piece of cake in comparison. I’m so overwhelmed.
Thoughts in taking cpa exam just to be able to have partner title instead of principal. In tech consulting and don’t need nor will use cpa but I’m eligible to take it as I have acc undergrad / masters
