It sounds like you are seen as technical SME. It’s been my observation that some people like tech SMEs to remain tech SMEs. And the best/smartest/rockstar tech SME is not necessarily the best leader. One has to invest time in learning leadership and management skills. Often times a first step is leading small teams and attending some leadership dev courses/workshops. Have you expressed a desire to grow managerial or leadership skills? If you don’t speak up, no one is going to read your mind. Is there a leader you can seek out for mentorship/guidance?

This insight is very helpful, thank you! You are correct. I am a SME and the data I report goes to directors/executives to make business decisions. Currently, my role is not management but involves leadership skills (training, project management, delegation, resolving conflict.) There are leaders I can seek out for mentorship within my organization. As a leader yourself, how would you like to be approached on this subject?

How long have you been there? Do they consider you a rockstar or is this self certified?

Thank you! You’re 100% right. I asked my direct manager yesterday for mentorship/development specifically for Project Management! I’ve been approved for leadership courses starting Jan 2022, and my manager is going to discuss possibly creating a position for me within my dept. We’ll see!

Hello. My district is currently remote (virtual) and I am teaching a chemical reactions unit. Usually, this is a hands on unit. I cannot do hands-on labs for equity reasons. My district does not have subscriptions to any science lab simulation sites at the middle school level. We use the NGSS. We are standards based grading and I can only grade the stand MS-PS1-2. Anyone have suggestions on free simulations I can use? I teach synchronously to my students 2 classes (2 hours total ) each week.

Anyone start a new job remotely and have tips to feel more integrated into the team/agency? I left my previous agency of 7 years and am now 3 months into a new gig but feel really disconnected, especially now that work is picking up. Team/agency culture used to be what got me through busy periods but having trouble finding that now. Lots of video calls and 1 on 1s to check in but still siloed in my home office. We all work remote from different states so going into our NY office seems pointless.
