I know that managing behaviors in class is a struggle for a lot of us this year, but I keep wondering if I'm doing it right. I like to be silly and make the kids laugh sometimes, but I feel like that sets them up to struggle in some circumstances. Anybody have thoughts on how to find the line between being too permissive and being a drill instructor?

Looking to make a move to either NY, DC or Bay Area.

Currently a manager in accounting/finance at a fintech company. Wanted some insights on the following:
- Opportunities there
- salary and other compensations
- culture/environment
- cost of living in the area (housing, transportation and day to day)
- easy to live in the outskirts and commute to the city?
- how is the support provided by companies to potential parents

Is the comp enough after expenses for a family?


It’s my birthday in a few minutes. 2021 has been a terrible year for me. My marriage ended. It wasn’t a bad end though. We are still close, just not romantic partners anymore. The very first dog I ever had died and I couldn’t go see her because of the quarantine. I didn’t get a promotion that I more than deserved. I don’t think I get paid well. Most of my friends moved out of the city and I’m having to meet new people at 32. I love my job but it’s incredibly stressful. I’m terribly lonely.


I'm an engineer and I love building things but based on what I've seen about Gen Z, I think I'm going to raise my kids in a less modern style. No TV, no internet, at least until a certain age.

Conduct annual performance reviews with your kids and let them know their status in the family is at stake. There’s no feeling in the world that compares to seeing an 8 year old kid on a PIP turn it around and earn an invitation to come back next year.

TLDR: Getting over your ex of 2.5 years ghosting you after they said they wanted to reconnect.

I was dating someone for about 2.5 years and then we broke up because of COVID and the long distance was making it too difficult to continue. The break up must’ve been like a 4-5 minute FaceTime because I was very distraught. After we broke up, she started seeing someone else but I was heartbroken and it’s taken me over a year to really get over everything and process those feelings. (Cont.)

During interview I was speaking to the hiring manager. Felt interview was going well. He seemed impressed by my answers, excited by my skills, and even gave me a tour of the office. At the end, he asked about my home life. When I spoke of my 3 young kiddos, the manager got a little taken back and replied Oh you have children? I said yes ages 3, 5, and 7. He then proceeded to ask me about daycare arrangements and if I can be reliable. Red flag as his demeanor changed and made me feel unworthy.

The company is very healthy financially and closing another funding round. I am not sure anyone was else was laid off. What should I do?

Additional Posts in Elementary Music Teachers

Hey! I’m planning to take an Orff Level 1 course this summer. Any tips, tricks, or advice as I prepare? Also, what other trainings would you recommend for elementary general music teachers? Thanks in advance!

Any advice for how to get tarnish off of glockenspiel bars?

Out of curiosity, how do you all feel about the “haha, recorder is a joke” jab from other teachers? While I enjoy a good laugh, it kind of bothers me coming from non-music teachers.


If anyone needs awesome, fun music activities, search Vincent Bates on youtube. He's a music education professor and has his music education students play music games so we can learn, too!


So how are you planing to do mallet work this year with disinfecting in between kids, classes, etc?

Did anyone else’s back-to-school plan not include music at all? I’ve been told I’m still supposed to teach music this year, but they haven’t announced any plans for it yet. You’d think the classes that contain the most students per day would be a higher concern 🙃


How often and for how long do you see your kids?

What are some of your favortie end of year activities?

How do you set up your classroom? What can you tell me about how often you use instruments? What do you do to make them accessible? Thanks so much.


I have a hand full of k-5 students who have gone the first half of the school year without music because of remote learning. Our district is moving to 100% traditional teaching after the MLK holiday. Any suggestions for reintroducing concepts to the group of students that’ll be joining us f2f for music the first time this school year?

How are you preparing your music classroom for long term shut down?
I put small stuff away. Covered all shelves, floor drums, Orff instruments with sheets to deter dust accumulation.


What are some VERY SIMPLE yet engaging activities (that don’t involve paper and pencil) that you use on the first days of general music? I teach 4th and 5th grade.

Just heard that my district will have classroom and live-recording learning. I’m thankful because I now can feed my family, my newborn and a recent-sponsored wife! I’m scared because I’m almost 50 and I’m afraid I might catch the virus and die leaving behind my 1 month baby and a wife who is not legal in the state yet! The USCIS or Trump’s dept. thinks she’s not good enough to be in the US!! We applied for green card and SS card since August 2019!

Hi! Can someone recommend a source for learning how do simple, fun music lessons on Zoom? I teach first grade and use music for my transitions.
