How do you cope with work in early pregnancy and exhaustion? I don’t have lots of common pregnancy symptoms except cramps and fatigue. The exhaustion is on high today!!! Yawning through my zoom meetings and it’s only 11am here on the west coast. I’m also a team lead so I need to be present on meetings. I don’t know how to cope lol. I slept a lot through the holidays but now I’m back at work. I even overslept for my 8am meeting today 😫😂.
Is there a way where you can have a zoom lesson while doing an interactive pear deck? Is there a way to do a poll?
Amazon Wish List train! Drop the link to your classroom wishlist below. I would love to give back to some amazing teachers!
How do you deal with all of the constant pings? I need some focus time to write emails & create campaigns but my entire team tends to be “on call” with Slack all day and it’s making me crazy. I want to bring this up to the rest of the executive team because we are overboard with the constant notifications and questions/comments that don’t really need to be in slack.
When you try to cite a tax reg in Skype for Business and send a kissy face and a flower instead...fml.
So I had a Zoom presentation to a partner and a manager. The whole time the partner had a smirk on his face. Even the manager noticed. He didn’t understand why he was smirking and I said maybe
How many calls have you had on Teams/Zoom/Skype/Webex etc? I'm wondering how many hours of my life were spent on "can everyone please go on mute" and "let's take it offline" 😬
Homework... it’s my worst nightmare in the classroom. I have to give it but have flexibility in creating my own policy. Please share what you give, how you collect, and/or grade!! THANKS!
While we are in this WFH situation, I like to blast music all day to keep me energized and engaged (when l’m not on Zoom calls). What are y’all listening to? (Spotify user here 💁🏾♀️ and playlist suggestions are welcome)
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. To give everyone an update on my best friend, who had recently become my girl friend, we broke up. We were in the middle of our daily Zoom session and midway through, I saw a half-naked man running across the background. I confronted her about it and she did indeed confirm my worst fear that she was cheating. I am sad now.
Does anybody incorporate SAT/ACT vocabulary and question stems in their classes? How does SAT prep look like in your classroom?
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?

Want to join a book club where we read classic books and discuss via zoom or chat. Didn’t get to put myself through college, so missed out on this sort of thing - but absolutely loved doing this in high school! I feel like it would be enjoyable to get through the hard reads together. Any leads?
We're returning to the classroom! I haven't taught live, in a classroom, since Friday, March 13, 2020. Ack! This is also my first full year as a teacher. I have four of my students and 3 students from the younger class coming to my hybrid class for three hours M, T, Th, F, starting this Thursday. Any ideas? Tips? Rules? I have lots of ideas, but figured I should pick the experts' brains, rather than freaking out and spinning my wheels. I'm feeling very high anxiety today. Thanks!
Is the CVA or ABV valued by big 4 at all?
Can you rank up as a developer too fast? I was recently promoted from a junior to mid level role then applied for a mid level role at another company which came back with an offer for a senior role. Is there any danger in accepting?
Just finished an interview where I gave my salary range that I was looking for but realized afterwards that I low balled myself. Is there a way to change the salary range after an interview?

What’s higher - associate or sr analyst? Currently I’m holding an associate title but got a job offer as a sr analyst at an equally reputable industry company that pays a bit higher. Just worried the title might drag me down a bit - but the salary will make me take it.
Shortest (Substantive) Hearing? I spent hours preparing a motion and the weekend preparing a reply brief for the judge to come out (well Zoom out), call the case, and say “I’m happy this motion was filed so I can revisit my prior order that I granted by mistake.” Uhhhh, ok. Thanks.
Partner and I have 3-4 weeks to travel in August. We’re considering either South America or cross-country roadtrip within the US. We don’t own a car and car rental costs in US seem exorbitant. Anyone travel to South America recently or have plans? Any tips or advice? (Both vaccinated US citizens). Thank you!
