Our school has a very diverse population, but our district and building don’t embrace it very well, so I decided to start in my own classroom. I talked to my kids about family origins and then surprised them with a flag from each country of origin. Now when they walk in there is a small representation of who they are. It also sparks conversation about where the different flags are from and shows students just how diverse we all are. So far the kids love it and we’ve had some great conversations.
I am struggling with whether a student needs to be in sped or what. He is a kindergarten student that struggles with behavior in the classroom. He is very smart but is on meds for ADHD.
How do you legally handle having your plan time taken for the 4th week in a row? Each day each week,, an announcement comes on saying it has been canceled and we have to keep our students. Union is not doing anything. We have such a shortage of teachers, our special, electives, encore, whatever you may call it have been put into classrooms because we are so short staffed. How can I legally fight for my time without union backing?
A lot of studies have shown that incidents of violence at home increased during the pandemic. Have people been seeing the effects of this in the classroom in terms of more suspected cases of abuse?
I work in a self contained classroom. A parent of one of my kids wants to come and volunteer after learning all my staff quit. Can I allow her to do this? Admin has no idea and I'm not sure with FERPA laws.. advice, suggestions? What can I have her do if she can come?
At work I don’t have any problems networking and meeting new people... at home, my kids classroom moms make me feel like I’m in middle school again.. anyone else?

Has a fight ever broken out in your classroom with your students? Just had to break up my first one 🤦🏻♀️
So teachers have to go back to the classroom even though we are still remote. The justification is to "prepare for going f2f" but there's no date for that yet. Is the real reason because they don't trust us to do our jobs?
I'm looking for some kind of Japanese language classroom environment in the Santa Monica / West LA area. I've been self-learning via Duolingo and other apps for the past year, and I've hit a wall. No problems with reading hiragana/katakana, doing all right with kanji. I currently need classmates and an instructor to motivate me to memorize speaking phrases and practice active conversation. I know there are apps for this type of language exchange, but they're usually 1:1 matches and virtual.
Hello! Will a fellow special education teacher in an elementary school, self contained classroom, share their classroom schedule? What time does the teacher have their lunch and what time does the teacher have a planning period? I know it’ll be different for everyone, but just trying to work out a schedule! Thank you!!
My district is rushing forward trying to get kids and teachers back into classrooms. At this point, a return to in-person is not an option for me. After a year there is still no real safety plan but yet they still want us all to return in April. How is everyone else's district dealing with the return to in person?
What is your favorite app or website you use in your classroom? Either for you as a teacher or as an intervention.
I probably spent over $2000 this past year but started my first year as a self-contained SPED teacher in an autism program. Such different supplies needed then the general education classroom.
I’m planning on leaving the classroom at the end of this school year and move to Germany. My parents are currently living there for one more year so I want to take advantage of the opportunity. I would like to enroll in a master’s program or continue work in some capacity—any advice or suggestions for working/studying abroad?
How do you spend the last day of school after the kids have gone home and you have locked up your classroom for summer?
This is my 7th year of teaching. I’ve been experiencing job burnout since my 3rd year. I know I need to do something else. I don’t think classroom teaching is ‘it’ for me. Did anyone else go through this? What did you end up doing?
We have had an extremely tough start to the year. I am second guessing my decision to continue teaching (year 20). What are some options for teachers that don’t involve the classroom or direct sale
Rejected from a couple more roles today, bringing the total to 20+ in the last few months. I’ve interviewed at 5-6, and one is still active. Is this normal? Am I doing something wrong?
Can anyone share the salary range of a Tax Manager in B4 in Toronto Canada? I just want to have an idea before I decide to submit my application.
All things equal - would you take 150 base and 300-400+ OTE to work remote for a Series C tech firm out of NYC? Or 120 base and 275 OTE to work for a Series B out of Scottsdale? Good problem to have - I know. I am from the south and have never worked in NYC, wondering if I’ll regret it even if the $$$ is better.
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
What would you do if you were me? I quit my job a few months ago and started thinking about creating my own start-up - I've had this itch for years but was too busy selling every second of my life to advertising agencies. Long story short, I got an offer from an agency. The salary is great but I am not excited at all about it and this would again bring to a halt what I really want to do in life. *A bit more info in the comments.
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
If you take vacation, is the onus on you to make up that billable time? If so, how do you enjoy long vacations?
Got an email from EY Law requesting docs to file for H1B amendment, which is weird because I am on a TN. Does EY file H1B for everyone? Is this the H1B lottery people are talking about?
Anyone ever transition from creative to account? Thinking that if I get laid off I might go after those roles too. How’d you get them to give you a shot?
SMs/MDs/Partners- If you have a client who's rude or unreasonable, do expect your team to just deal with it or is there a point where you'll step in to intervene?

Completed interview with Apple, met 8 people in total. I felt awesome with 7 out of 8 (including the hiring manager), one guy I’m not sure as he didn’t clearly give me indication. Do I have to get everyone’s blessing to get a positive feedback?
