What's the best way to help a student catch up after a while away from school?

My partner of 5 years ended our relationship last night. I’m shattered and feel absolutely sick, and I know the healing isn’t going to be easy. We were on the verge of an engagement and I was ready to spend the rest of my life with him.

I don’t know how to approach work during this time. I think I can get by, but I’m definitely not 100%. Should I talk to my boss about it? My team is close-knit and comfortable around each other, but I don’t know if it’s “appropriate.” What would you do?

Planning to move back to our hometown before the baby is due which would make me about 6-7 months (move in April, due date is early July). Is it worth it to try and find a new job the last couple months of pregnancy or should I use that time to settle in to our new place before baby arrives? I just feel bad that my hubby will have to be the only provider for that long of a period. I am an RN.

Anybody still have children going to private school in person. Our 5 yo is in a Montessary where they had 3-4 COVID cases reported over the weekend. They are still keeping it open for now. We are wondering if we should send our kid. What are other parents doing?

TLDR: Getting over your ex of 2.5 years ghosting you after they said they wanted to reconnect.

I was dating someone for about 2.5 years and then we broke up because of COVID and the long distance was making it too difficult to continue. The break up must’ve been like a 4-5 minute FaceTime because I was very distraught. After we broke up, she started seeing someone else but I was heartbroken and it’s taken me over a year to really get over everything and process those feelings. (Cont.)

My wife and I are trying to have our first baby. She is ovulating this week. We’ve done it twice since she started ovulating this week. Night before last she wanted to and I said I wasn’t up for it. And she said okay. She wanted to again last night and I said I wasn’t up for it. She got really upset and after a long conversation happened, we left it at: “Wife ovulating>whether or not either one of us wants to have sex”. Is this normal?

Hi all! I was asked coordinate a local happy hour for my team. The issue I’m having is that I’m currently pregnant and am not sure if I’m comfortable to hang out with strangers. What’s the most professional way to say no without hurting feelings / burning bridges? Or should I suck it up and go?

I have recently moved and am also pregnant so I'm taking a year off from teaching and subbing this year. I'm fine with elementary age children but what tips do you have for middle schoolers??

Moving to London in June for a permanent role. What's a good area to live in, friends? Looking for a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom place ideally.

I am an elementary school teacher. My oldest son is feeling drawn to ECE. He loves children, loves to help in vacation bible school, wants to work directly with people to help them. Thoughts?

I’m on leave (16 weeks) but my wife just quit her job and doesn’t plan on working anymore. I think I have to go back to work. Depressed because I don’t want to sacrifice this time with my child...

Also wondering what curriculum is being used, if any, in your classrooms

16 weeks and so worried all of the stress I’m under is going to hurt the baby. Between work, my own scary (non-pregnancy) health stuff, the pandemic, my mom (who is a widow and lives alone, basically isolated by choice due to covid) is having health issues, and pressures to keep billable hours up, I’ve been having complete breakdowns. Today I spent almost the entire day crying and now have to make up the billable time this weekend. I really worry abt what effect this will have on the babe.
