Hi All! I hope you guys are staying safe and healthy. I am hosting a free workshop for teachers that I thought might benefit you. The workshop is called From Unsettled to Prepared Classroom. I am giving you the tools you need to feel organized and ready for this upcoming school year. There is so much that is still uncertain and it can be super daunting to start to plan for a year like this one. You can sign up here: https://adva-hanan.mykajabi.com/pl/192080
Hi I am a new teacher intern hired yesterday. I will be teaching second grade. School reopens on Aug 17. I do not have my own materials. I do not know what materials are there in my classroom. What should I buy? I will be talking to the Principal on Monday to find out more. I am very excited and nervous at the same time. Any tips and suggestions for me would be helpful.
My daughter just attended a new teacher workshop at a ROE. A Superintendent presented (not hers) and told this room full of new teachers, “Real teachers get to school at 7:00 am and go home at 8:00 pm.” Really?? As a veteran teacher of 26 years, I was appalled! Makes sense why new teachers are leaving the classroom in their first five years and why we have a teacher shortage in Illinois with those type of expectations.
What does a principal do all day? My principal seems to sit in her office a lot and looks busy, but I'm really not sure with what and I wish she would come into my classroom.
What is your max class size for the year? Is that number based on a virtual or in person classroom?
I am moving classrooms, and my new classroom has a bathroom. I’m looking for literature that discusses bathroom etiquette and any other suggestions you might have for using a bathroom in a class.
Has anyone ever had a student in their classroom who became very sick part way through the school year? What did you do to show support as a teacher/school community?
Just went from 5th to 2nd and would love to know classroom management ideas. Anything to stay away from? Thanks!
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. ❤
As an interventionist, I work with many grade levels and students. Looking for the best way to document data and information along with how to share the information with classroom teachers & parents.
Am I the only teacher who doesn’t have family or friends willing to help with their classroom? I’ve moved rooms every year for the last 5 years and I have a large family and lot of friends, but no one is ever willing to help. I told my mom today that it really hurts my feelings, as she declined my request to help as she simultaneously asked ME to help do something for my sister’s house. I explained I’m always there when people need me, but I feel let down when I’m in need. Anyone else?
For those of you who have made or are making a school switch, what did you do with all of your classroom stuff over the summer?

What is your take on cameras within the classroom setting? Does anyone have them already installed?

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.
In an Essentials/Contained middle school classroom do you request basic school supplies or items specifically for the students to have, ie their own binder, pencils and pencil bag?
First-year 5th grade teacher here. Once I am able to get in my classroom, I will only have 2 weeks to get ready. Any advice on what I can do to prep before getting into my room would be appreciated.
Does anyone use Wit and Wisdom in their classroom, and have any advice? What are the pros and cons? We will be rolling it out in August.

Show of hands; who has been laid off because your agency lost a big client? Also, when you interviewed for your next job did you feel comfortable saying that? And do other agencies understand?
Hi Guys - Is it good to look for a job change now? Currently at level 9 with CTC 15 and expecting promotion this year. How much hike can I expect?
Once, a M friend said "men are stronger than women, I could dominate you right now" and at the moment I didn't know what to say cause he was in fact bigger and stronger than me. But this is something that bothers me still... I think people in general, regardless of gender, have different abilities and it is not a matter of comparing but rather understanding how best to use them, for yourself and for the society. It pisses me off to know ppl can think like this, and he is actually a good friend

Recruiter asked for total comp for a financial analyst role in service cost modeling at Apple in Cupertino, CA. Glassdoor ranges are very wide, 54-146 just for base. Thoughts?
What do you do when your SO is so naive that she tells her employer during a promotion interview that her long term plan is a career in academia.

What's a very memorable or engaging networking event you attended? What made it so great (could be something from pre covid times too or from the present new norm if virtual)!
Looking to get a few certifications, I have worked in both IT and HR consulting and am trying to decide between ITIL, SHRM, and PMP. Any thoughts on which would be best for future, quickest to get, hardest test? I get the cert paid for and a bonus upon completion, so trying to decide which one to pursue or the order if I want multiple.
Just received cousin's invite to her wedding and it's on a Sunday. It's not necessarily a destination wedding but is in a city that neither she nor her family, nor her partner's family lives, so everybody has to fly + get hotels. I'm annoyed because I think it's a but disrespectful to your guests to make them all travel and do it on a Sunday so people have to take time off work Monday in order to attend. I know I don't have to attend, but shouldn't it be convenient for guests?
Started a project ~3 weeks ago. So far it’s only been myself & my PM. A new person joined this week. Should I reach out and introduce myself to him? Was thinking an email/quick slack message welcoming him to the team? I know I would’ve liked that when I joined.
Recently completed recording a series of seven one-hour webinars, approved for credit by CFRE for both certification and continuing ed. Did some advertising on LinkedIn, no takers yet. I have some name recognition in the nonprofit development world, where quite a number of people do need these credits. Not sure what to try next. I also have a 25k word text that could accompany these webinars and serve as a desk reference, not quite ready for publication. Have not figured out distro.

it feels like every survey about working from home is (poorly) designed to answer the useless question "would you rather work from home or from the office." I submit that the set of people who prefers to have only one of those two options, always and forever, is the null set. which means it DOES NOT MATTER because the correct answer is always going to be "make both possible." you're welcome, HR departments everywhere.
Anyone else delayed at LGA? Sky club meet up!
