When you do work for school (lesson planning and/or grading), do you keep the TV or music on in the background? I like to, but it's also distracting and makes me way less efficient.
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.
I’m new here. I am also new to my grade level. I just moved to 5th grade and it will be my first year teaching 5th. My question is, do teachers share lesson plan/activity ideas here?
What are the lessons that you have learnt from Strategy Consulting that you may not learn in other management consulting?
What’s your best first day of school lesson? Any cool icebreaker games? How do you start the year?
Are you finding it easy or challenging to translate your "in person" lessons to an online format?
Yesterday was a good day. I was really impressed with myself. I woke up at 5, practiced dance lessons, did two water colors, made breakfast and tea, got to work by 10, put in 8-10 hours of solid work and then came home. It’s been ages since I painted or danced. However today, I slept till 7:00, did not work out or have food. Still got to work by 10 and did 8 solid hours of work. Some days are good and some are just okay. And that is okay. Trying to build on my good days and we all can. :)
First yr in NYC corporate group. Trying to schedule private lessons either at 8-9:30 pm on a weekday or around lunchtime on Saturdays. Is Saturday an obvious choice? Is it okay to respond to emails after 1.5~2 hr on weekends (obviously not when we’re signing/closing)
What are some of lessons you have taken from consulting; my new one: You can send emails up to 2000 feet down into Grand Canyon

Got a bit too drunk at a work happy hour. Nothing embarrassing happened but I definitely blacked out and could’ve said stuff that I wouldn’t have said sober. Everyone else was also drinking quite a bit, so it was fine but not ideal and I’ve just been ashamed. Lesson learned. This happen to anyone? How do you get over the shame/anxiety of “what happened?”
Anyone who bought a new construction home... What mistakes or lessons did you learn from it?
One thing I struggle to remind myself of is you can only lose so much from a bad investment but gains from a good investment are (sorta) unlimited. If your starting position is $10,000 and the value halves, you're down $5,000. But if the value of a separate position doubles, you're now up a total of $5,000. I think learning this will help me reach my FIRE goals by eliminating a lot of emotion and impulse in my investment decisions. What other "life lessons" do any of you have?
People need to realize how the world works, hedge funds will not be left holding the bag of trash. Money is king and shocker, they have more than us retail investors. This was an expensive lesson for many and not to gamble what they can’t afford to lose
I’ve been burned by the stock market before trading options (when the market bottomed out in 2016) and I learned my lesson on recklessly speculating on spikes and dips in the market. Anyone else feel like this situation is gonna create a class of retail investors who are over confident in the “ease” of timing the market, without doing an research, after all this dies down?
Is it a bad idea to cold email a hiring manager / head of department if there’s a job you’re interested in at their company? Different from seeking advice/networking so wasn’t sure.
If my director said I would be rated a 1 as a 2nd year, does that mean I should expect a promotion to senior come May? Not sure if you can be rated a 1 and not promoted.
Am interviewing at small to midsize accounting firms. I have passed my first trimester and am receiving positive responses from my interviewers. At what stage, if any, do I inform potential employers of my pregnancy?
Folks invited to interview at Ross, have you gotten the email with the interview sign up details yet?
Has anyone travelled to the US recently? If so- were you able to use the $40 COVID test at Shoppers as a negative test to cross the border? I’m considering going for a long weekend at the end of the month but trying to sort out the covid-related logistics.
In house job- been through 7!!! interviews. GC, to whom I was a double referral, scheduled a call for tomorrow morning and titles it "discussion". I'm thinking it's probably a verbal offer. Your thoughts? My anxiety has been jumping out of my skin as the call was originally supposed to be sometime today but he had to push it.
Let's do a salary thread for parental leave policies: Post your firm’s parental leave policy. Fishbowl will circulate the data once we've reached 25 responses, so make sure to share with your coworkers.
Any perspective on m&a with regards to the current situation? Is M&A going to be the most hit? What are people and especially people on Visa doing as backup plans?
Just found out that my godmother passed away from covid. She helped raise me. Feel awkward telling my manager that I need a mental health day.

Small town teachers....how do you get past the insulation? I can’t talk to anyone in my district about issues I’m having with admin because it’s a small town & they cover each other and gaslight you. The school district only cares about their PR and has vague policies that keep us from saying against them, yet we can’t say anything TO them either. My union rep is trying to help but she also said that it’s all too common for small towns. They always win & you just have to suck it up or get fired.
Joining Strategy&/PwC soon but have a pre planned vacation. Recruiter had mentioned that it shouldn't be a problem and we can talk as we get closer to joining date to finalize. Has anyone been in the situation before and what do you recommend I do? I'm worried that once onboarded, I won't get my vacation approved
Hello fishes! Is Cisco India a good company to join? Especially for a Software Engineering role. TIA :)
Expecting~$200k in cash coming in. Currently I'm with Fidelity. Is it worth the hussle to deposit it in another brokerage to earn the $900 bonus? I'll make the deposit, buy the index fund, let it sit for about three months and then transfer the fund back to fidelity.
