Hi! Do any of you incorporate Montessori concepts/strategies in your public ed classroom? Care to share? Admin is open to it as long as it's standards-aligned.
Cleaned out my room on Friday. Who else worries that they'll NEVER see their classrooms again?
Has anyone had the conversation on how we get Ss and Ts ready for returning in the fall? I’m not talking about mask usage, hand washing times, physical distancing in classrooms, etc. I don’t think we can expect Ts and Ss to come back and just hop right into academics. Need sometime to process together, get some SEL, be face to face social again, etc. Just wondering if districts out there have gotten a head start on this task.
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. ❤
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? 🤩
I will be teaching Chemistry this year in a modular classroom with no lab area. Any suggestions on a virtual lab option? We have chromebooks.
How do you manage breakfast when they eat it in class? I feel like my classroom is such a mess before it is even 9 a.m.
When a question is asked in the classroom:
Does anybody incorporate SAT/ACT vocabulary and question stems in their classes? How does SAT prep look like in your classroom?
If you're looking for something unique to post in your digital classroom i posted an audio field trip to Mackinac Island. https://anchor.fm/josh-h/episodes/Mackinac-Island-Field-Trip-eci0nb
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!!!!
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.
Has any special education teacher left the classroom to go into admin work? Did you miss working one-to-one with the kids daily?
My district is looking for suggestions on ways to modify our special ed program. Ours is making life hard for our general ed classrooms. Does your district have a model you would suggest?
Any suggestions on science or social studies curriculum to use in a self-contained (setting 4) EBD classroom?

Deloitte Moms, Since we can get two breast pumps, one from Deloitte and one from insurance, do you mind sharing what you guys picked from each. About to be FTM soon and I am really so confused with all the options. Thank you!
DEN was nuts this morning. The Clear line was wrapping outside the gated area. Good luck for everyone flying. 👍
I wanted to flag so others can know, I live in mcol and I just received an offer for 120k base and a 15k signing bonus. I have three years of experience. I asked for a signing bonus and a 110k salary. If you are a senior, you should definitely be applying and just see what comes up. Crazy the market for seniors right now
Attempting to renter the workforce after a 2 year hiatus due to health issues followed by the pandemic. During this time off I had minor success running a small business, but not enough to pay the bills. I have 3 YOE, 1.5 as a Loan Officer, and 1.5 as a consultant within compliance and Fintech. Please let me know of any fully remote positions, or hybrid positions based out of Chicago or Milwaukee. I live in Dubuque IA, so for in office work it would have to be in Dubuque. TIA!
Anybody work at Amazon? Are their offers negotiable? My husband got an offer for a senior position in the VA office paying $120k plus $20k bonus plus 13 shares of stock that vest over 4 years. My husband has ~6 years of experience (2 yrs midsize PA plus various industry roles) so the senior title is low but have heard you have to take a step down in title to work at Fortune 25 companies. He likes the offer but not sure if he should negotiate for more because it’s expected?
