Any advice for a para that recently finished her BS in elementary Ed and special Ed M/M? Interview tips, classroom management, and advice on getting beyond the aide status ?
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?
Has anyone taught Romeo & Juliet before? I am worried about the suicide scenes, as I have a few students who recently attempted suicide. How do you deal with that aspect in your classroom?
One thing on my classroom wishlist is _________.
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. 😉
I am going to miss my students tomorrow and Friday. I love them so much, and I don’t want to be digital; I want to teach them in person! This year has definitely been a challenging year, but I am so thankful I have been afforded the opportunity to teach in a classroom. My time at home during this pandemic was mentally taxing, and seeing my kids in person this semester has given me life. Every day I am teaching is day that is more than a gift.
Are you required to come into your building? I'm teaching vitrtually, but 2 days a week I'm required to come into my classroom.
Agree or disagree? A student with a 504 for an anxiety disorder should be required to go to some kind of counseling for coping strategies if mods are required in the classroom.
I'm a brand new teacher & will begin teaching 3rd in the Fall. I need to compile a "wishlist" of sorts, of things I'd like in my classroom. Would like to know the top items you'd put on your list. 😁
We just started using the Classroom Assessment Scoring System in our programs to measure quality of interactions and lesson plans. I think it's been one of the most meaningful tools for providing feedback to teachers.
I'm looking for thoughts around training (classroom and self paced) offered by your firm. How important is it to you. Do u really have time to take the training. Just curious
Is anyone feeling the disrespect of students in a classroom? The attitude towards adults when a student is interacting with the said adult. Wow! The mother in me just wants to wash the child’s mouth out for such disrespect, BUT definitely NOT allowed in school. How have kids gotten this far w/o any reprimand for their behavior? What are we teaching them if we keep ignoring….
Can you connect Seesaw to your Google classroom?
My school has a lot of children with adverse childhood experiences. We did an activity I called "Safety Island" where we talked as a class and drew all of the things that made us feel safe on the island. It gave me a lot of valuable information about how to help children in my classroom having a meltdown.
Hi everyone!!! Last year I put together a list of classrooms to exchange valentines with! We mailed 1 valentine to each class and included a picture if we could, and a few things about where we live and things we do! I currently have 13 classes signed up! The more the merrier!! We have classes CA, WI, PA, KS, TX, RI, MI, Canada, New Zealand. I have a form to fill out if you are interested! I will email everyone the list probably at the end of the week if not sooner! forms.gle/G
Any other teachers having to be in busy work classes these next two weeks rather than planning your lessons -Canvas-Google Classroom and everything else we need to do before students arrive?
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'm thinking of leaving the classroom to become a school counselor/social worker. What steps do I have to take?
I induce meaningful learning in my classroom by using concrete situations in the world as a resource to illustrate the learning goals of my lessons.
I firmly believe it should be a requirement for all administrators (from APs/principals to superintendent) go back into the classroom for 1 year after every 5 years in their current admin job.

My client in a nutshell.
What is the federal parental leave policy? I’m new to government and having a baby soon. I know we’re given 12 weeks and have to sign an agreement to work 12 weeks after we return but are there other stipulations to a claw back period or how long we had to be at the agency first?
Where’s the best consultancy to work at for digital people? Who has a great culture and supports there people? Convince me why I should work at your company.
Random Question - I live with a roommate for the last 2 years now. We have become really good friends and she is like a sister to me. We used to hangout and do a lot of fun stuff before COVID. When I make a plan to do something during COVID, I always include her to do or go somewhere. Of late, when she makes plans, she goes on her own or if she goes with her friends (whom I know), she would not invite me. I feel left out and sad because of it. I think I should not feel that way as she can
What are some reasons to decline a second interview? I recently interviewed for an Internal Audit role but I didn’t feel like the pay range matched the job. This IA role is for a small credit union and you’ll be the only IA. It’s a new role they came up with this year as different departments would have a a role at different audits. Their pay range is 65K - 75K DOE.
Not that I or someone I know is in a situation, but I was just thinking if you guys have a contingency plan in case things go south at work. Mainly with respect to sustaining immigration nightmares. Specially at experienced M/ SM level people get canned without prior notice. And now that Deloitte has asked staff to find work for 45 hours every week it's going to get more and more challenging on mid senior level as well.How are you guys preparing for the rainy day?
Thinking about going to see a mental health and wellness coach or medical professional. COVID is getting to me, is this a bad thing? I feel weak asking for help, but think I may need it.
Do yall keep the timer running when on standby? (I.e. not exactly drafting but waiting for emails or dig pages to come in on closing day)
People, Have an interview with a FAANG firm for their revenue and sales operations role. Has anyone of you been through similar rounds. What can I expect ? Any sample cases/questions to share.
If anyone can review my resume and provide some tips that will be truly great. Currently applying for financial analyst job, but no luck so far.
How is slalom compared to Accenture? Will probably have 0 travel until next year and wondering if it is still a better choice for work life balance. Since this project started last month, I am working 12 hours everyday and on weekends. I'm just analyst
If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼
Are there any real differences between the Big 4 in FDD or all the same? I know for audit they’re basically all the same
Just withdrew right before my interviews with Amazon and Microsoft this week. Still remember the good old days when I used to worship em and ask everyone for a referral but now just happy with non-FAANG industry exit, significant bump and amazing WLF.
