Ok…I’m curious. I pretty much have to beg, barter and steal to get supplies for my classroom. Do teachers in states with legal cannabis have this problem? It’s my understanding that sales tax from its purchase goes to schools, or is that all smoke and mirrors…No pun intended. 😉
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 ￼￼￼￼￼
My 2 year old is a sensitive little guy and often cries at daycare drop off. Today, as I turned to leave, I saw his little face crying “mama” through the door of his classroom 😭 now I’m sobbing too...
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. ❤

My school has a lot of children with adverse childhood experiences. We did an activity I called "Safety Island" where we talked as a class and drew all of the things that made us feel safe on the island. It gave me a lot of valuable information about how to help children in my classroom having a meltdown.
I previously used Donors Choose to fundraise for my classroom but no longer can because they don’t cover private specialized schools (where I am now) What other sites have you used to fundraise?

Are all healthcare agencies finally doing away with the whole sup/group sup title? How does that affect you? I started in consumer and had no idea what a copy supervisor was when I started
I recently accepted an offer which entails a nice signing bonus. I have a bf of like 1 year. He has, twice, kind of jokingly suggested that he expects me to pay for our trip we are taking before I start the new job. Is it selfish of me to like still request he split the cost of accommodation etc? I make more $ than him for context. And he usually treats me to din whenever we go out. It’s kind of a lot of $ for me to just do, and I’d rather like, invest it… but I don’t want to be selfish. Idk.

I’m good at my work, not good at being a Consultant. Too busy with hands on work & trends to schmooze and build relationships. Sometimes i feel left out of the “culture” and unsure of my place.

Does having gaps on your resume automatically take you out the running for FAANG companies..
Deciding on a stroller as a FTM. Read a lot of the comments in this thread. I’ll be having a winter baby in a very snowy place and won’t be doing walking outside until baby is maybe 5 months. I’m not sure I’d need a bassinet. What stroller would you recommend? If Uppababy, is it still worth it even though the Bassinet isn’t really going to be used?
QB/AAG/Gamma folks -- how'd you find benchmarks for your total comp seeing as there arent as many out there? What's the reasonable equivalent TC for A/C/SC in SEA?
