We're returning to the classroom full time after Spring Break (finally!!!). I am going to be co-teaching for the first time and I'm nervous because I'm new to the school and don't know this teacher well. Any tips on how to get to know her and plan together?
In your years of teaching in the public school setting, has anyone ever had students placed in their classroom that have never been to school at all? Help!!
Hi there! I attended a virtual robotics workshop last week. I learned a lot and especially enjoyed connecting with others who were using robots in their classroom. I hope you join the discussion and we can find a way to support each other.
What is your max class size for the year? Is that number based on a virtual or in person classroom?
I teach in a behavior focused classroom and my goal is to help students regulate their emotions and function in a general education classroom. Any tips for getting those gen ed teachers on board?
I teach high school and I am in three classrooms everyday, I want to have charts and posters on the walls but I just can’t afford to buy everything in triplicate. Is it worth decorating or should I just forgo those kinds of things?
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!!!!
How do you use technology in your classroom to teach math and ELA to SPED students? I will have 1 first grader, 4 second graders, and 2 third graders in my room at the same time for ELA.
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.
Wondering if other districts have taken away duty free lunches for teachers to supervise lunch in the classroom to provide social distancing.
I just saw a cool variation on the Bitmoji classroom: Students designing their own virtual lockers with 10 things that tell something about them! cool, huh?
Can’t decide between Cornell’s Metro vs. Americas EMBA program. They both seem to be great and offer an Cornell MBA upon graduation. Americas costs about 155k while the Metro NY costs 205k. Both programs are 60 credits in different formats. I can’t seem to understand the difference in price. I like the Americas program because of its flexibility (can attend from selected cities across the US so I would not be stuck in NY). I like the Metro NY for the in-person classroom environment.
Can you connect Seesaw to your Google classroom?
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?
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!
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. ❤
How often does your school's wifi crash? We are supposed to be doing most of our work on google classroom still but this early on we've already had two whole-day internet crashes.
What is your opinion on a MS social studies teacher having a confederate flag hanging in their classroom?

Health question: Does anyone else suffer from nerve pain in their butt/hips from sitting all day? My research tells me it’s piriformis pain. It means my sit bones are irritating my butt muscle, which irritates my sciatic nerve. It can be excruciating and hurt even when I stand. I bought a fancy seat cushion for my office chair, and I have a standing desk. Nothing helps. The pain has been around for about a month. Anyone else?? What did you do?
Anyone ever negotiated parental leave before? I have an offer on the table. Gave me what I asked for $ wise and PTO. But mat leave is not great. Not trying to have a baby now, but in the next 5 yrs.
Is it bad to interview on a company laptop
If I'm expected to take a Zoom call during my lunch hour, I'm eating on camera. Also, who cares if my lemonade happens to have a salt rim - let's just focus on the work.
Afraid of my chase account being closed. If you were to transfer UR Points and had no option otherwise, what/where would you transfer your points? Approx 200,000 UR points, not the most but don't wanna lose them haha
Brutal 2 weeks. Weekend of work. SM micromanaging. Pick up someone's slack and they 🔨 your head. What is wrong with this people?
Does Deloitte belong in MBB? DMBB?
Thinking outside the box: need H1B renewal stamping, eligible for Dropbox in my home country. However, going there is still risky in case of a 221g and consulates closed. Can I send my passport to my home country through a friend for Dropbox stamping? Once the stamping is done, I can travel to home country (after they courier my passport back) Is this possible or am I going crazy?
Is just me or do offshore team mates get sick significantly more often than onshore team mates? Noticed this on my last three projects and I always end up taking L and doing their share of the work

Would you tell your younger self to go into advertising? I’ve already experienced anxiety, sexual harassment from my male bosses, and a layoff...
Any other staff feeling like they might try to leave audit earlier than they planned to? Love my firm, but WFH is brutal and the people I’ve formed connections with have mostly left or WFH 99% of the time which leads to less social interaction with them. I figured I’d stick it out for 3 years or so, but with another busy season looming in a few months I’ve started looking at other roles through my network, and wasn’t sure if I was the only one.
I have a holiday birthday and I resent my birthday every year. Coworkers never remember and are too wrapped up in the holiday mad rush. Friends can never coordinate a day to get together to celebrate
