Does anyone do Skype visits/meetings with people working in the STEM field? I feel like this could be a great way for students in my classroom to ask questions and make connections to the real world.

Yes, great way to make connections. We have done them with NASA, a marine biologist while in the south Pacific, and several others. Would love to expand.

I was recently informed by a teacher's aid that another teacher in my school thinks that I 'Do Nothing' as an art teacher, and went so far as to spy on me outside my classroom to reinforce her opinion. Obviously she is wrong and completely ignorant of what happens in my art class every day. I am not the confrontational type, but I feel like I need to address this. Any advice?

I was recently offered a Zoom interview. The school had 10 interview slots for me to choose from. Three were one day this week and the rest are next week. I chose the first time slot available. Should I have waited until one of the last slots so I was fresher on their mind when choosing a candidate? I am just sitting here stressing out until I here something. Also, do interviewers still appreciate a hand written thank you for the interview?
