How do you guys handle teachers at the Elementary level when you have to cancel guidance classes to coordinate testing, attend PD or take a sick day??

I create some pre-recorded lessons and aligned packets with materials ready-to-go in folders that teachers can use in my absence. If teachers don’t feel comfortable running one of those lessons I encourage them to do a “what we know, what we don’t know but want to know” about emotions, counseling, conflict, etc so that I can have a better base when I do come in next time. There are also some amazing lessons by Brad Montague on his website that are easy and wonderful in a pinch.

I think that above suggestion is a good one to have some material prepared… But remember teachers also take days off and you are entitled to your days

Maybe stirring the pot, but the unvaccinated are very comfortable posting confidentially, despite being around other people’s children who may be too young to vaccinate. I’m just curious, are any of you comfortable and confident enough to let the adults of your students know if you’re not vaccinated?

Might be an unpopular opinion but I’m not terribly thrilled with the new Halo Top ad. I’m all for body acceptance but part of the reason COVID hit the U.S. so hard is because of co-morbidities like obesity. There has to be a line btw “real” bodies and not celebrating a state that causes so many medical issues - Ie overweight without the medical definition of very obese. Do you think brands have gone too far in the other direction?

I love my boyfriend a lot and am worried about him. He Ubereats his food every single day for every single meal and it’s stressing me out. He only consumes carbs and his diet doesn’t consist of any veggies at all. He’s only 29 and has been feeling sick and anxious all the time. Plus work adds a lot of stress. He has obviously gained a lot of weight and he has been feeling extremely low. He said that he will start doing cardio everyday but refuses to change his diet. I don’t really care what he

We had a PD today and were yelled at for taking off. We were told we are expected to be in everyday and we are screwing over our colleagues because when we are out they have to cover during prep. How is it our fault there is a sub shortage? Why should we feel bad for taking our days? Is anyone else dealing with this? I love my students but I am sick and tired of admin expecting us to be perfect

I never thought being a mom would be this difficult. I am working full time, have an infant who wakes up every 3-4h and doesn't fall back asleep unless held in arms, am breastfeeding for medical reasons, and feel resentful and beyond tired all the time. I hate the fact that my body is so different to how it was before, that I don't have a sense of self any more, that I can't disconnect and take a break (and this is likely to not change for years to come). Is this normal or unfit to be a mom?

Are there any Partner firms that will not be requiring vaccination for employment? Family has history of genetic heart disease issues and several family members are experiencing adverse health complications following vaccination.

I’m in a pickle. Currently working in multistate tax and I am not a fan. I just accepted a position with KPMG on their methods team (it sounds like interesting work and I’m sick of compliance). I put in my notice and my Deloitte manager is trying to fight for me. He wants to match the pay they are offering and get me into a group that I like more. I am a ball of anxiety. Loved the people I met with for KPMG, but having my manager push so hard for me is making me have second thoughts. Any input?
