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.
Cleaned out my room on Friday. Who else worries that they'll NEVER see their classrooms again?
Does anybody incorporate SAT/ACT vocabulary and question stems in their classes? How does SAT prep look like in your classroom?
Has anyone had the conversation on how we get Ss and Ts ready for returning in the fall? I’m not talking about mask usage, hand washing times, physical distancing in classrooms, etc. I don’t think we can expect Ts and Ss to come back and just hop right into academics. Need sometime to process together, get some SEL, be face to face social again, etc. Just wondering if districts out there have gotten a head start on this task.
I will be teaching Chemistry this year in a modular classroom with no lab area. Any suggestions on a virtual lab option? We have chromebooks.
We started state testing today with my kiddos taking their FSA Writing. It is the first time I have seen them in school as they are a digital class, and such an amazing experience to see them together as they talked amongst themselves before we went to the classroom to test. You can see how much they miss being together. ❤
Happy New Year! Although just a change of a digit on the calendar, the fact that we’ve rotated around the sun gives people inspiration for change. What new or altered mindset or actions will you be bringing into your classroom in 2021? 🤩
When a question is asked in the classroom:
Now that i'm back to the classroom, I realize how out of shape/sedentary I have been and I'm absolutely exhausted. How do I get back my energy/ get back in shape... but gradually bc I'm old!!!!
Any suggestions on science or social studies curriculum to use in a self-contained (setting 4) EBD classroom?
Has any special education teacher left the classroom to go into admin work? Did you miss working one-to-one with the kids daily?
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?

Anyone have experience with bariatric surgery, good or bad? I’m 6’0, currently 270lb (normal range pre-Covid was 220-250lbs) female recently diagnosed with Graves Disease (thyroid disorder) that has me swinging hormonally all the time affecting my mood and emotional coping skills, metabolic hunger signals, energy levels etc. I’m interested in a consultation and feeling bariatric surgery may a tool to provide some “bumpers” on my weight situation. Interested in others experience here!
Anyone has experiences to share on exec MBA at 37-38 years old..as a SM not sure if there is significant career upside in the short run..thoughts?
Hi! I have two offers and I’m not sure what to do. One is with a small firm that serves as outside counsel to medical practices (leasing, employment issues and acquisitions are primary work load) and the other is in-house for a pharmaceutical company (managing outside counsel, vendor contracts, privacy). The firm pays much better (1800 hours, flexible wfh) but I feel like the experience in house would go further in becoming a GC down the road. Please help!
Started taking prenatal vitamins , ubiquinol and vitamin D. Been doing this for a month to prep to get pregnant. Breaking out like crazy for 3 weeks now. Are these linked?
Am I making a mistake? Thinking about signing with Strategy& and giving up my 2nd year bschool reimbursement ($80k) from my internship.
What % of your salary do you have saved right now? Savings account / checking account count but not stocks/investments, 401(k), etc.
Could use some structural layout help for a deliverable: Creating a one-page report that reflects a product offering, its benefits, and its significance (the ‘so what’) - currently only having multiple bullet points for each as the content, but think it’s not suitable aesthetically for a presentation. Any suggestions for how I should best format it for exec management? This isn’t a PPT.
Show of hands; who has been laid off because your agency lost a big client? Also, when you interviewed for your next job did you feel comfortable saying that? And do other agencies understand?
Just saw an intern I managed get promoted to SAE. Trying to figure out how not to get caught in a 2 years = promotion cycle, but it seems that’s where I’m at. Is this normal?? I’d be okay with 1.5 years even, but 2 years and a few months at a role I know I’m kicking ass at sucks. Is it time to jump ship??
Got an invite from Amex to upgrade my gold to a platinum card. The benefits seem solid but I already have CSR. Thoughts?
Should I take the Siegfried job? They gave me a competitive package and also helped with relocation. Is this a good move out of audit? Alao interviewing with FDD but just started. Is Siegfried bad?
Do partners at top consulting firms have better WLB? An Associate here contemplating whether all this is worth it. Thanks!
In terms of total comp, who do you think makes more: an EP at an agency or a mid level producer at a FAANG company?
Deloitte pushing start dates from August to January. Graduating MBA with 6 figure debt and a ton of additional financial obligation. I’m devastated. I know I should be grateful but damn it’s hard.
Feeling like my firm has a very outdated parental leave policy (and none of the women partners have children)! What is the parental leave policy at your firm? Please include: (1) size of firm; (2) location of firm (city, state); (3) how many paid weeks off from firm (not state/fed benefits); (4) other policies such as ramp up/down time, etc.
anyone at PHL want to catch up at bar ?
I’m mentally breaking down because I have been doing a job of a scheduler, PM, notetaker, regulatory submissions, and thus have no room for growth to work on strategy. I’m an AS and I am so sick of having to remind everyone because no one looks at my notes, recaps, and no one remembers anything from any meeting. Recently because I’m so exhausted I started making more “mistakes” like not catching a mistake on a submission. Is this because I suck or is it time for me to move off? I feel terrible.
