Me in my classroom last week...
What is your best classroom management trick?
The teacher next door classes are too loud‚ they do not have any classroom management skills and it is affecting my class.
My district is experiencing a teacher shortage (shocking). Prep teachers, academic coaches, and teachers on special assignment are being put back into the classroom. Any other districts doing the same?
What does a principal do all day? My principal seems to sit in her office a lot and looks busy, but I'm really not sure with what and I wish she would come into my classroom.
What are some of your favorite classroom organization supplies? (Bins, pencil holders, etc.)
I feel like my classroom is really small. It’s an interior room, so there are no windows, which doesn’t help. I’m looking for suggestions that make my room feel larger and brighter. Thanks!
We're returning to the classroom full time after Spring Break (finally!!!). I am going to be co-teaching for the first time and I'm nervous because I'm new to the school and don't know this teacher well. Any tips on how to get to know her and plan together?
I was gifted with 4 new desktop computers for my classroom! I teach 3rd and 4th grade learning support! Any suggestions for free and/or inexpensive academic websites?
In case you never got to see the New York Times article about air quality in classrooms, I’m posting it here for you. It makes some very important points about creating the safest possible environment for students and teachers. 1. Open windows if it all possible 2. Place air purifier centrally 3. Don’t place fans in a way where the air is pointed at people Have a great year and keep yourself and your students safe! https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/02/26/science/reopen-schools-safety-ventilation.html ￼￼￼￼￼
Does anybody incorporate SAT/ACT vocabulary and question stems in their classes? How does SAT prep look like in your classroom?
For those of you who have made or are making a school switch, what did you do with all of your classroom stuff over the summer?
Ok…I’m curious. I pretty much have to beg, barter and steal to get supplies for my classroom. Do teachers in states with legal cannabis have this problem? It’s my understanding that sales tax from its purchase goes to schools, or is that all smoke and mirrors…No pun intended. 😉
One thing on my classroom wishlist is _________.
Mandating health care for teachers...where will it stop? Once government starts mandating an area of our lives they rarely ever back off...they double down and mandate more...so again...where will it stop? Here is a for instance...if we look at days missed then pregnancy is certainly a huge factor...when will the State start mandating birth control for teachers or write contracts that births be scheduled during summer vacation time so as to not negatively impact the continuity in the classroom
First-year 5th grade teacher here. Once I am able to get in my classroom, I will only have 2 weeks to get ready. Any advice on what I can do to prep before getting into my room would be appreciated.
Hard money loan for a buy, rehab rent project: 168k principal, 8% interest, 2.9% loan cost (4.8k) and 4 points (6.7k) The upfront cost seems a bit excessive to me or is this normal today?
EWR Terminal B why do you ruin my life weekly
I’m on PTO doing some final studying for my GMAT in 2 days but my PPMD is pinging me to help on something. I told him about this PTO well in advance (several months ago), but I don’t want to disclose that I’m taking the GMAT to him which is why I will not be doing work. What should I do?

Thinking out loud..... can a person join any accounting firm, including big 4 with a marijuana felon (6 years ago)?
I created an Amazon Wish List for my classroom. Now what?? What platforms do you use to share it? Has anyone had success with this??
Has anyone gotten the COVID vaccine while pregnant? If so, care to share your experience? Currently debating whether to get it (I’m 21 weeks) or wait till after birth…
Hello. What's the best agency so far to go to when it comes to diversity and actual inclusion for a POC creative? Im pretty done with POC creatives being put on banner projects and the white teams getting the bigger stuff.
GPS people - Can I get per diem for the weekend if I stay at the client location over the weekend instead of flying back to home. I won’t be needing to expense the Hotel or rental car.
Anyone in Deloitte Strategy and Analytics that could give me a referral? Top performer in my current practice but want to leave due to the lack of diversity at the management level.
Thoughts on moving to San Diego as a mid-20s female? Can’t deny the weather but are there other young professionals around?

Do you have to work at the location listed in the Amazon description? I see a few job posting that I’d be qualified for; however, they’re in different states. I’m in ATL and these are roles in Cali, Seattle, and Washington
I’m in trading operations. I graduated during COVID and it has been my ultimate goal to become a trader. I know it’s insanely difficult to pivot from back office to trading but I would welcome any advice on making that transition.

Hi Everyone, Pandemic life is wearing on us all. The only thing that gives me resilience and strength is meditation. There’s a new free meditation workshop starting this week via Zoom!
Anyone else tire of the “plant mom” and “dog dad” me too conversation? It seems to be more frequent. For example, company says, “Parents, please share pictures of working from home with your kids during Covid” for a diversity and inclusion project. Undoubtedly someone responds, “what about my plant babies? 🤣”. I don’t want sympathy but I find it childish. Just give us the courtesy of understanding that plants and pets are not the same. Stop “me too’ing”

4YOE @Amazon & trying to lateral to a similar role @FAANG. Have my undergrad GPA (3.8/4) on resume from top 15 school but colleague says to take it off (looks silly). If it’s a good school & high GPA, why ever take it off your resume? Even if 10 YOE...can’t hurt?
