Help! I’ve been teaching PE online for 11 years and I’m going back into the gymnasium this year. What do I need to know about how PE has changed in the last decade? What tips and advise do you have?

Data collection and technology are much bigger now in the gymnasium. I'm sure you could implement some of what you have used online and make it translate well into the classroom now.


How did you do your online PE course, need to plan my lessons but I’m all over the place right now. Don’t know where to start.


Collect data a lot. Used to do fitness testing 1 time at the beginning of the year now we do it 3 times to watch progress and document. Record any behavioral issues immediately after they occur since EBD teachers and admin know those behaviors typically come out in PE.
Also, be involved. You should never be the teacher who rolls out a ball and sits in the chair watching. Constantly walk around the gym. Feedback is probably 75% of your day. Use multiple forms of delivery to introduce a game. Demonstrate, talk about it, use a video, use a step by step demonstration with students. Etc. The more ways you can deliver the information the more likely you are to reach every kid


Where did you teach pe online? Interested

Is this a bad time to transition into a new job? There are open opportunities but is it too risky? Anyone here transitioned during COVID or planning to? Please share your thoughts!

If you declined a job offer from a B4, but now want to pursue the opportunity a few months later, would the firm move forward with you? Would they make you interview again if so?


What if we don’t want raises? What if we want one week of billable credit vacation or longer instead? How is that not more reasonable and more desirable for everyone? Am I missing something? How do people take vacation and meet their billables? Incredibly frustrating and definitely adds to the stress and depression of this job. Thanks for reading my pointless post.

Started dating my college boyfriend 3 years ago and he’s my first boyfriend and we just got along so well and we feel in love. We didn’t start having more important convos until the past year and I realized our world views are different bc of political differences. He thinks we can still make it work but I’m struggling. I think I know it won’t work and I have to break up with him but I don’t want to and he doesn’t want to. He makes me so happy treats me so well. I just feel helpless and broken


I'm getting really frustrated about how cheap my bf is. I'll buy groceries for us and he won't offer to pay 50% but we take an Uber together and I have a Venmo request for half. If we go to bars and get drinks he will tip under 10% because 'this drink doesn't require that much effort to make.' like that's not the bartender's fault! Idk how to tell him he's cheap and needs to be fair especially if he's requesting money from me and not paying his share when I spend.

Deloitte Digital in NY. What's it like working there compared to a normal agency? Pay any better? Work-life balance any different?


Do you hug and cheek kiss people at your workplace or previous workplaces? Especially from the opposite gender. I always feel super awkward about this and feel that handshakes are a lot less complicated 🤝
