Analytics folks - could any of you recommend a classroom based training as primer in python / data science? Have a research and analytical background but not a quant and don’t code much.
This school year has been very challenging to me. I’m a instructional aide,one-on-one, in a general education classroom. Teacher has never really made conversation with me, sometimes I force a ‘good morning ‘ from her. Her silence around me just makes me uncomfortable and not welcomed in her classroom. She has made comments towards my student, saying that he doesn’t need an aide, or that students don’t need ‘babysitter’s at school’. Has any aide experience this in classroom?
Finally finished decorating my classroom, but I have one blank wall. Suggestions for what to do with it? Feel free to be creative!
Anyone else having vision issues going from using a “computer” (attendance, lesson projection and so on..) to your classroom and back? I wear progressive lenses and have trouble with readjusting each time plus floating digital shadows.. my lenses were updated last February, I’ve been back to eye doc twice to discuss this…
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.

I have a negative Nancy aide in our classroom. Regardless of how many times she has been spoken to and reminded to keep the negative at bay, it seems to appear daily. Suggestions to help it totally disappear?
Joining this group because I sincerely believe a classroom should be full of wonder in all forms. Let's talk.
I need some advice! I am a new teacher in a Behavior unit. I have a token Economy in my classroom and a leveled behavior system. Some of my kiddos are not responding to it. They are k-2 students.

I'm transitioning from teaching 8th grade mathematics at a public school to teaching a 7/8 self-contained classroom at a charter school.
Any advice for teaching mixed grade levels or multi subject is appreciated: scheduling, classroom setup, subject order, behavior management, etc. I'm struggling to find my rhythm with only 6 weeks before kids return.
Thanks to everyone for your commitment and time, enjoy your summer!
Remember the days where teachers kept to the facts and our curriculums, no opinions, no politics, and we just loved kids? We didn't treat kids (or our colleagues) different or better because of their labels or the letters behind their names. Special treatment was taboo because we strived for equality. Yea. I miss those days.
Any programs that are state-funded and working with inclusion? We have a start up inclusion, part-day classroom this year.
Do you have your high kids help out lower kids in the classroom? If my high kid finishes early, could I pair him with another student? I try to arrange seating so that high, middle, low are mixed.
We just got Canvas this year. We currently use google classroom. When we started google classroom, it took a lot of time to figure out a working organizational system and the best settings to manage assessments and work flow. If you currently use Canvas, what organization worked best for you and what are mistakes you made that I should try to avoid.
Anyone use edgenuity? I'm starting Monday with students, never been trained, no guidance. Don't know how to set expectations if I don't know. ice breaker ideas? I'm not in my classroom.. media center.

Has anyone transitioned from HR into another field and if so which ones? My experience is in benefits, training, and leave of absence. Looking to see what other options might be out there. I have a BA and MHRM.
Thoughts on Webull for investment account? Got a referral link and they offer 2 free stocks with $100 deposit. Seems similar to RH.

What's your vesting schedule? I'm on a 1 clear cliff, 4 year vest, but am curious if anyone has a better schedule.
I’m in a pickle. I have recently started an industry role after government consulting. My goal was to work for government, but ofc that was difficult to land. Anyways, a month into my new industry role, I got an interview for a government role which I had applied for previous to joining. Which if I landed, I’d take in a heartbeat! How do I explain this to my new employer? I’m so new.

ORD travel - should I try and get out today or stick with my 7:30AM flight tomorrow? Many people are saying that there will be severe delays/cancellations. Sad!
I am a senior consultant (Tech Consulting) in a Big4 (India) who is promised a promotion in October. I have an offer from Accenture Ireland at CL9 level. Is it worth making the move? I have started disliking the culture in my team and thus looking for a change. It would be great if someone could help me out with this. Accenture
I just left one job where my boss refused to train me and wanted me to figure everything out on my own. Started a new job and in the exact same situation again. Is not training new employees the norm now? I realize that I’m coming in with experience, however every company does things differently. Plus this is a totally different industry. I ask my boss question and get no response for days. Then he follows up to ask if the task is complete. Where is the dIsconnect and how do I address it?
Lately as I've been WFH I've been pretty good about ending work at a reasonable time, say 7pm. But recently a couple deals I'm working on have hit the home stretch. I've been working slightly longer, but nothing crazy. When I try to get to sleep though, I think about the deals and all the ways it could go wrong and how to have contingency plans in place. It's been hampering with my otherwise healthy ability to get to sleep. Can anyone relate / have any suggestions?
Worst interview experience you’ve had? Had a bad experience with American Express and withdrew my application after the interview. Nailed every question but the interviewers were complete assholes that I would not want to work with.
Looking for someone in big four accounting to connect with and vent with. Is this the right place to find someone? I find that it helps to talk about these things with someone who understands.
