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!!
Due to social distancing rules, when the kids come into school in the morning, they have to immediately report to their classrooms. I get it, but I also don't have time to entertain them as I'm prepping for class. What can I do to keep them busy?
Just started my 4th year teaching and finally feeling more confident and comfortable in the classroom. But being a young teacher, I feel like the online/hybrid learning would come more naturally to me (with how to navigate technology especially) since we did it all last year. Even so doing it this year, I’m still lost as to how to do it effectively. Anyone in the same boat?
Teachers, how long do you think it would take you to get back into the groove of teaching once all students return to the classroom?
There are several children in my classroom who keep having tech issues. How can I support them without taking away from instruction time?
In case you never got to see the New York Times article about air quality in classrooms, I’m posting it here for you. It makes some very important points about creating the safest possible environment for students and teachers. 1. Open windows if it all possible 2. Place air purifier centrally 3. Don’t place fans in a way where the air is pointed at people Have a great year and keep yourself and your students safe! https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/02/26/science/reopen-schools-safety-ventilation.html ￼￼￼￼￼

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.
I feel like my classroom is really small. It’s an interior room, so there are no windows, which doesn’t help. I’m looking for suggestions that make my room feel larger and brighter. Thanks!

What classroom management tips do you have for a nontraditional 3rd year teacher? I teach middle schoolers science. Looking for new techniques that will help me make year 4 a lot better than the previous years.
“If you’re not sweating by first hour, you’re not teaching”, “Don’t let me walk in the room and see you a$$ sitting down”, “ You should leave everyday exhausted” just a few quotes from our new academic supervisor. I find these extremely offensive, but since this is a supervisor any advice on how to handle this situation?
Do you have a place where you're able to lock up your stuff in your classroom? I don't and I'm not sure if I should make a big deal about it.
Happy New Year! Although just a change of a digit on the calendar, the fact that we’ve rotated around the sun gives people inspiration for change. What new or altered mindset or actions will you be bringing into your classroom in 2021? 🤩
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.
Does anyone have PowerSchool and Google classroom connected? We use PS Teacher pro for attendance and grades. We use Google Classroom for posting assignments and grades.

Healthcare M&A consultant here - 2 years experience in healthcare...separated from firm yesterday. Is anyone hiring?
My best friend is an immigrant. She has lived in the USA for ten years now and has a great career. However she says america is very lonely. Her fellow immigrant friends from different countries also say this. She says culture here is friendly but distant and ppl are too wrapped up in their home life and less so in their social life. She misses daily socializing that was a norm in her home country. I’ve lived here all my life so can’t judge but curious as to whether other immigrants here agree
Fastest promotion from A to SA that you know?
Can anyone tell me about what’s it like working at Weber Shandwick? I don’t know much about the agency or their culture. Thanks!
I'm young (28yrs old) and I just got a new job, and I'm now making almost 2x more than my friend group and they always have a comment about how much I make saying "I'm rich now.. etc. etc" (which I'm clearly not) and at first I would chuckle and shake it off but now its starting to get to me a bit because I've earned my salary through my experience and I don't know how to confront them about how its making me a bit uncomfortable to be around them because of their comments. What should I do...?
What are the ledger growth expectations (dollars or %) at your firm this year? I’m finishing the first year as a new tax partner (not B4). Started with 1.9million ledger and grew to 2.7million with pipeline worked from past years that turned to wins. The pandemic hasn’t allowed much time or travel to refill the pipeline. Now there’s pressure to add 500k and grow to 3.2million by end of 2nd year. Feels like a big number for a second year tax partner.
EY kids, has anyone ever negotiated with the partner during the annual compensation conversation? If so, how did it go?
Does anyone here struggle with balancing work and attending to children at home as a single mother. I work from home in a very demanding job as a manager and I feel horrible that I have to sacrifice time with my children to work. I want to be successful at work and climb the corporate ladder, but at the same time my children don’t get the attention they need, especially my 6 year old that can barley read.
On my notice period and bench for the next couple of weeks. With wfh I'm basically doing whatever I want (running, reading, swimming, day trips nearby) during work hours. Can't travel abroad cos UK visa is being issued. Any activities/places I should visit in London that get jam packed during the weekend?
Do you actually enjoy your job at MBB? Or are you just there for the money/prestige/exit opps? Been hearing horror stories about the WLB and didn’t know why else people would be sticking it out there if not for those 3 things.
Real talk 2: if you decide to have children, it’s entirely possible you will not like the child at first (or at various points). It’s a huge decision, and having complex feelings about the matter is completely valid
Getting an offer as a new hire in Deloitte Advisory GPS DC area. What salary should I expect?
Planning to join Deloitte office in Bay Area after visa transfer process. Living with wife and 2 children. Want to understand healthcare plans available and deductions in each paycheck. Thanks.
Working as a Principal at Slalom Consulting, 2 YOE, strictly Salesforce. My prior 10+ YOE is tech consulting/digital mktg outside of Salesforce. I'm happy with comp, projects, coworkers,etc. Salesforce is recruiting me for a solution architect role in CSG. After talking to 2 recruiters, job sounds identical to my current role. Outside of equity, is there a compelling reason to consider Salesforce? I think the equity would be nice but travel also seems more likely postCovid. Thanks!
DEI hires don’t address the issue. We know they are powerless positioned designed to give the impression of ‘doing something’ rather than grooming and promoting the diversity under your own roof. There’s a problem when your clients are more progressive and demanding of change than you are, agencies.
