Hello all, just joined. I use a lot of ed tech in my classroom and would love to connect and exchange ideas with others.
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.
Anyone else feeling overwhelmed, working 12+ hours a day and still not getting it all done? I also feel so alone working from home, I wish so much that we were in classrooms. Just feeling it, needed to vent.
After attending first day of in service I found out my principal couldn’t get me a classroom downstairs ( I have a knee disability) so had to resign , now district won’t pay me for in service.
With the possibility of schools closing, does anyone have a recommendation for a classroom alternative? Either on-line, or a good home schooling program?
If you're going to carry a backpack instead of a briefcase, at least make sure it doesn't look like you stole it right out of a junior high classroom.
Anyone use edgenuity? I'm starting Monday with students, never been trained, no guidance. Don't know how to set expectations if I don't know. ice breaker ideas? I'm not in my classroom.. media center.
What is your take on cameras within the classroom setting? Does anyone have them already installed?
Anyone ever had a class that no matter what you do or how you discipline, the kids run around the classroom, scream out, and create total chaos?
Does anyone use Google Classroom for ECSE ? I was supposed to have it up and running by Thursday. Luckily, all of my kiddos came. I didn’t take the workshop this summer and the person that gave a brief overview last week talked so fast that I couldn’t understand what was being said.
Good morning ! If anyone has any children's book they are willing to donate LMK. I am trying to build a classroom library for my 1st graders and promote literacy. I want ALL of them reading.
Want to become a data scientist, and considering shifting around my Fall semester schedule specifically to take this course called “Business Analytics with R”. Can someone tell me if these topics are actually worthwhile taking? In other words, will I actually benefit and use these topics after I leave the classroom? Thanks!
Today I was greeted with a post-it note on my desk from my principal about my observation yesterday: "Being in your classroom was like a breath of fresh air. Your students are so lucky to have you."
Is anyone else feeling extra anxious about starting this year? I’m almost 20 years at the same site, and I have fears that I’ve lost my skills while going through the pandemic. I’m scared I won’t be able to classroom manage now that classes will be back to full sized and that I will have a mask on.
Started working after undergrad with salary of $60k. Raise each year about 15% for the last 7 years. Even though 15% a year seems good, I still don’t seem too satisfied. Is it just me?
12 weeks today. I was hoping I would be able to get DNA genetic testing today but my insurance still hasn’t approved the testing. I have up until Friday to see if it’s approved if not I can get another test but it’s a 90% detection rate ($300). The other test is 97% and out of pocket it’s about $3K. How would you guys proceed?... Just take the $300 test if the other isn’t approved in time?
Does delta bump your status down one level even if you don't re-qualify? I just got gold status (made platinum last year) but haven't met the requirements yet

“As a general rule of human civilization, we’ve lived where we work. More than 90 percent of Americans drive to work, and their average commute is about 27 minutes. This tether between home and office is the basis of urban economics. But remote work weakens it; in many cases, it severs the link entirely, replacing spatial proximity with cloud-based connectivity. What knock-on changes will this new industrial revolution bring?” Thoughts? https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2021/02/remote-work-revolution/617842/
I am completing Noogler period this month. I joined in January with 3-4 years of experience and Google offered me L3 Level and despite having other offers in hand, Google didn’t negotiate. And since Google was my dream company, I joined Google thinking I’ll ask for promotion in one year and do the hardwork. Till now I wasn’t having any problem. But now it starts mentally for me. So, I referred one of my friend from my same batch of college and previous organisation. contd. in comments!
Looking for input on a career decision. Me: 9 YOE, homegrown manager who is currently doing a stop in industry. I have an offer to return to consulting (M&A). My end game is pure strategy. Do I take the offer or wait for the opportunity to interview for pure strategy? My take is it’s more difficult to lateral the more senior you are in your career.
Working on my couch in PJs. Work feels like a big ol’ slumber party with PowerPoint and Zoom. I think I’m adapting quite well to the new normal.
Maybe staying at home this long has made me more critical, but I’m struggling to maintain any suspension of disbelief with ads and tv shows. Case in point: the MB ad where the kid snuggles the dirty, grime & bug ridden toy off the front of a truck - seriously!? And don’t get me started on ‘Your Honor’ - WTF, do they not have fingerprinting in the NOPD???!! Case closed.

How long did it take for you to find an exit? 1YOE and my company (boutique) is struggling, so I’m looking to leave ASAP, and getting worried I won’t find something before our next round of layoffs
Got an informal offer to join a client (manufacturing company). 240k base, 60k cash bonus target (can shrink or double depending on company metrics) + 50k annual equity (3 yr rolling vesting). Director level which has just one additional layer between me and the Exec Committee. My contact already internal negotiated extra vacation and is working on my behalf for a signing bonus. Is it worth trying to negotiate base? Or is this already a strong offer?
I’m a Army reservist and retiring In a few years. Will be getting healthcare at age 60 for the rest of my life. Does it make sense to put money in a HSA?
