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
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. ❤
When a question is asked in the classroom:

How do you manage breakfast when they eat it in class? I feel like my classroom is such a mess before it is even 9 a.m.
For JHI....what is your school/classroom policy on cell phones? We have a policy but it’s not really followed so each teacher does their own thing. It’s a nightmare!
On Monday, we'll have like an hour to go into our classrooms to get anything we need to start making lessons for distance learning. what do i need?

Mask off: Journalist to freelance copywriter. Started working full-time under contract for an agency that won't hire me. I've freelanced for agencies and in-house marketing teams, but I'm always the outsider looking in. I want to transition to a full-time permanent gig. Interviews seem to go well, 2 agencies went to 3 interviews and nothing. I know I'm totally missing something that agency insiders would understand. Would love advice on navigating uncharted territory. Thank you!

Been on FMLA / short term disability for 3 months and doctor recommended 1.5 months extension.
