Hi I am a new teacher intern hired yesterday. I will be teaching second grade. School reopens on Aug 17. I do not have my own materials. I do not know what materials are there in my classroom. What should I buy? I will be talking to the Principal on Monday to find out more. I am very excited and nervous at the same time. Any tips and suggestions for me would be helpful.

Any thoughts on how to transition from tech startup to corporate development roles? I started at B4 leading digital transformations and now work at a tech startup. I see CD roles focused less on modeling and more on ops excellence which feels like my sweetspot. Also interested in joining a startup spinout from a CD dept. I've heard of these roles at large hedge funds, banks, pharma, but don't know what to look for or how to find these roles outside of joining headhunter networks. Any tips?

Have any of you quit to take a break - 3 month or a 6 month sabbatical to pursue other interests or just to clear your head and figure out what’s next. How easy was it to find a job after the break and how did you manage your health insurance? Any other things to keep in mind when considering a sabbatical beyond money?
