I used to dread PDs at our school, but this year we do open-door style where teachers sign up to lead a workshop on something they've created or initiated in their classroom, like trying a new activity or app, and teachers pick which workshop is most interesting or applicable for them. I love having choice!

this is inspiring! i wish we had more choice.

I love that they’re led by other teachers! This sounds awesome (and also not super high pressure).

Why do so many people in FDD hype up FP&A exit opportunities? It seems like: 1) most of those opportunities would’ve been available for high performers coming out of audit; 2) financial reporting managers (and higher) make the same, if not more, than people in FP&A; 3) FP&A is not “FIH-nance” - it’s glorified accounting that is somewhat forward-looking but ultimately isn’t that much more interesting than debits and credits. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.
