We shouldn’t go back to the classroom this Fall. I got positive for COVID from just hugging my sister who was asymptotic. This is Day 5 after I started showing symptoms. The first two days were hell. The hardest thing about this virus is how it affects your mental state.
I'm thinking of leaving the classroom to become a school counselor/social worker. What steps do I have to take?
Are you required to come into your building? I'm teaching vitrtually, but 2 days a week I'm required to come into my classroom.
Looking for (adaptive, preferably) educational technology for ELA to be used in classrooms as both enrichment for students identified as gifted as well as re-teaching, offering helpful support for students who struggle. Has anyone found anything that does both well? Looking especially for a tool that teachers can get behind and that students enjoy/find easy to use. What do you love? What do you hate? This would be targeted to grades 1-6 primarily, but it needs a high ceiling.
I teach in a behavior focused classroom and my goal is to help students regulate their emotions and function in a general education classroom. Any tips for getting those gen ed teachers on board?
I am new to RR this year. I am excited about this new journey and created this group to hear advice and tips for classroom setup, organization, and time management. Thanks to all who comment!
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.
Does anyone notice that their students are extra talkative since returning to the classroom? It makes sense and is natural, but sometimes I wish I had that mute button back! Is that bad?
Now that i'm back to the classroom, I realize how out of shape/sedentary I have been and I'm absolutely exhausted. How do I get back my energy/ get back in shape... but gradually bc I'm old!!!!
Wondering if other districts have taken away duty free lunches for teachers to supervise lunch in the classroom to provide social distancing.
Happy New Year! Although just a change of a digit on the calendar, the fact that we’ve rotated around the sun gives people inspiration for change. What new or altered mindset or actions will you be bringing into your classroom in 2021? 🤩
How do you use technology in your classroom to teach math and ELA to SPED students? I will have 1 first grader, 4 second graders, and 2 third graders in my room at the same time for ELA.
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. ❤
I induce meaningful learning in my classroom by using concrete situations in the world as a resource to illustrate the learning goals of my lessons.
Anyone signing up for the classroom manhattan GMAT course? Trying to decide what day to have class 🤔
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?
Our school uses Foss Kits for Science and I was told when students return, we will need to sanitize all items before and after each use. This doesn’t seem possible in a middle school setting where each period has a 4 minute break and 25 students in each period. What do you do in your classroom to minimize the amount of work needed to clean and sanitize items. I don’t want to short change the students’ hands-on experiences.
For classrooms that have 1:1 devices (chromebooks, Netbooks, tablets) how much time do you think is appropriate for students to be on them at school? What programs are they using? Grades 2-8?
Any other teachers having to be in busy work classes these next two weeks rather than planning your lessons -Canvas-Google Classroom and everything else we need to do before students arrive?

So when r the comp statements coming?
Hey all - a recent grad (class of 21) really interested in an associate position at S& Deal Strategy. Found out there was an open position super late, so went ahead and reached out to alum. Have a chat for next monday, but I found out that the PwC national deadline was on Tuesday. Asked alum if it was a hard deadline and he said to apply whenever. Ended up applying on Tuesday in fear that the apps would close, but might have shot myself in the foot. Any advice on how to proceed? Strategy&

With traditional education being challenged by Coursera, Udemy, EDX and other MOOC's, do certifications like CISSP, CISM, PMP, CCNA.. still hold weight in today's world? What about 3-5yrs frm now?
Anyone heard of Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan? Thoughts about culture and progression there?
I am due to take 2 weeks parental leave sometime in the next month and have an offer lined up. Is it better to tell the new place I would prefer to push my start date to take my leave and join two weeks after (accounting for 2 weeks of notice when I get back)? Would that be burning a bridge with current firm (taking leave and giving notice as soon as I am back)? I want to avoid losing 2 weeks of salary during that time if I can.
Anyone here work at Wayfair? What do you think of the child trafficking blow up happening right now? Search #wayfair hashtag on Twitter if you haven't heard. At this point, we only have Wayfair saying this is ridiculous, but obviously this can't be a coincidence...
Costco is selling washable black fabric masks by 32 degrees (brand) that are far more comfortable to wear than those medical masks. Highly recommend especially if you are not at high risk.
I have an offer with a T2 consulting firm that I've accepted but I have another offer at a tech company that I plan to go with. With everything wfh, do I have to renege or can I just work at the consulting firm as a new hire on the bench for a few weeks before quitting once the workload piles up?
