How have you trained yourself to watch what you say 100% of the time when you are at work? I come from a very politically conservative background and am having trouble adjusting.

Just being conscious about everything that comes out of my mouth. It takes practice.

If you mean during instructional minutes, then just remember to stick to the curriculum, standards, and student outcomes. If you mean around colleagues, then that’s another matter altogether.
If it’s the later, become a good listener & find your peeps & you won’t feel the need to monitor as much.

Yes. I have trained myself to be conscientious 100% of the time and sometimes you do slip up. We are a licensed professional. We need to watch what we say and we also need to think how the students and parents may perceive what is said at the same time.

I have seen many people become leisure in notice period and doesn’t bother about co-workers. Now, I am on notice period and want to do same but don’t feel doing it since management sucks and my co-workers will be ones who will feel pressurized as I have been in same place before. Can I get suggestions how to handle the time? should I repeat what others have done to me?

The partner I work with always sets stringent deadlines so that we can discuss the work product - causing me to work late into the night. Then she ghosts me on the projects and we don’t get to it for days. Miserable.

What is the advice on what feedback to leave for a peer who really sucks at everything y'all have worked together on? It's about the time where everyone on my team requests feedback from each other and I'm nervous for it coming up. My manager knows that everything I've worked w her on I end up doing 90% of the work when it's meant to be split so it is a known issue. We're both at level 3 so are genuinely peers. She seems like a nice person but i have 0 positive work feedback tbh

Guys, that Geico commercial with the grandpa whose nose plays "Flight of the Bumblebee" is pretty terrible.

When can you be sure that you’re good to go in terms of the new job? I have my independence check finished and laptop shipped. Background check is the only thing missing - would it be a good time for me to put in my 2 weeks? I’m just nervous about putting in my two weeks prematurely in case the new job decides to renege the offer for whatever reason (happened to me before).
