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.
I was gifted with 4 new desktop computers for my classroom! I teach 3rd and 4th grade learning support! Any suggestions for free and/or inexpensive academic websites?
Do other people have a key to your classroom?
I work at a school with limited resources. My walls are a dingy white, the tables are old, harsh fluorescent lighting, etc. What are some suggestions for creating a warm/inviting classroom space?
Hi there! I attended a virtual robotics workshop last week. I learned a lot and especially enjoyed connecting with others who were using robots in their classroom. I hope you join the discussion and we can find a way to support each other.
I feel like classroom management is harder for me than for others. I'm starting to think that it's because I am a male teaching in an elementary.
I am trying to problem solve an issue with Google Meet. I will be teaching remotely via Google Meet to students who are in the same classroom with a classified staff member as their monitor. Is there a way for the students to be logged on and turn on their microphones to speak without the feedback that is created when people in the same room log on to the same Meet?
Anyone ever had a class that no matter what you do or how you discipline, the kids run around the classroom, scream out, and create total chaos?

If you're going to carry a backpack instead of a briefcase, at least make sure it doesn't look like you stole it right out of a junior high classroom.

How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.

Can you cash in on the lodging per diem and use air bnb instead of booking the preferred rate hotels for client travel? I think I'd rather have the cash than the hotel points.
Nightmare situation today at my first Zoom trial. On Friday, the court said trial would begin at 1:30 PM on Monday. We informed our clients and all our witnesses to be ready at that time. Never got a Zoom link, figured it would show up Monday morning. At 9:01 AM on Monday, we get an email saying, among other things, “Defense counsel has not appeared for trial.” Then, another email came immediately after that, with a Zoom link included. It’s just me and the paralegal in the office at this point.
