I'm currently a middle school social studies teacher (this is my 10th year of teaching) and formerly worked as a home health care manager at our local area agency on aging (4.5 years) and as a behavioral modification counselor for adjudicated teens in a residential behavioral modification program (5 years). I had a tutoring business for 1.5 years as well. I'm looking to transition away from the classroom if anyone has any jobs or job leads I might be qualified for, please let me know. Thank you!

Does anyone have experience working for Connections Academy or another virtual academy? I am very interested in teaching from home, but most virtual jobs I have reviewed still require you to come to an office/ school building. I want to know what it is like, specifically the work load. Would you say more or less than public? How does classroom management, amount of grading, and freedom of curriculum differ?

Dropping this in a few bowls, sorry if you see it twice.
I'm transitioning from teaching 8th grade mathematics at a public school to teaching a 7/8 self-contained classroom at a charter school.
Any advice for teaching mixed grade levels or multi subject is appreciated: scheduling, classroom setup, subject order, behavior management, etc. I'm struggling to find my rhythm with only 6 weeks before kids return.
Thanks to everyone for your commitment and time, enjoy your summer!

Hello Fellow Fishies! I have taught for eleven years as a gen ed teacher, using my sped cert unofficially. I am excited to begin teaching as an inclusion teacher within three- 7th grade classrooms.
I've been given a budget to spend, but do not really know what I'll be needing, as I'll be in other teacher's classrooms.
What is helpful for you that you have purchased or wish you had purchased? I'm not looking to spend money just for the sake of spending it, but I do have $300. Thank you!

I teach a 7th/8th grade self-contained classroom and I'm looking for recommendations on morning activities, transitions, and non-core subject matter.

I have a high level of ADD/ADHD students, so I was contemplating a Morning Meditation and/or Movement to help them focus more. I also would like to work on incorporating transition periods that will allow them to more easily convert to a six period schedule in high school.

I also enjoy teaching life skills, such as investing, and would love recs

2) Coinbase vs Robinhood: I still don't get the "ownership" element. I can avoid fees by using RH, but I don't fully "own" crypto. Apart from security, is there a financial consequence? Will fewer people buy my crypto on RH in the future bc it's not "owned"?
