I need some classroom management ideas for middle school kiddos. I've tried everything in my bag of tricks and my students are constantly off task and disruptive.
My school has a lot of children with adverse childhood experiences. We did an activity I called "Safety Island" where we talked as a class and drew all of the things that made us feel safe on the island. It gave me a lot of valuable information about how to help children in my classroom having a meltdown.
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? 🤩
How do you use technology in your classroom to teach math and ELA to SPED students? I will have 1 first grader, 4 second graders, and 2 third graders in my room at the same time for ELA.
I'm thinking of leaving the classroom to become a school counselor/social worker. What steps do I have to take?
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!!!!
Is there anybody here that has started back to work with students in the classroom? If so how many days and what state? Thank you.
Does anyone notice that their students are extra talkative since returning to the classroom? It makes sense and is natural, but sometimes I wish I had that mute button back! Is that bad?
Pencil dipped in paint and shoved in my new electric sharpener. There are acts of destruction daily in my classroom. Most of my classes are 25 kids in a small room. When my attention is taken for a second, someone does something like this. Gluing things to counters. Hiding paintbrushes instead of cleaning them. 15 years, I've tried everything to cultivate a respectful classroom culture, and they just don't care. I'm so tired. So, so tired. I don't know how much longer I can do this.
I am new to RR this year. I am excited about this new journey and created this group to hear advice and tips for classroom setup, organization, and time management. Thanks to all who comment!
For those of you who have made or are making a school switch, what did you do with all of your classroom stuff over the summer?
Moving to a classroom of assessment capable visible learners. Any ideas for anchor charts on the Art room ?
Our school uses Foss Kits for Science and I was told when students return, we will need to sanitize all items before and after each use. This doesn’t seem possible in a middle school setting where each period has a 4 minute break and 25 students in each period. What do you do in your classroom to minimize the amount of work needed to clean and sanitize items. I don’t want to short change the students’ hands-on experiences.
Chem classroom social media. Do you use it? I have recently started and had a lot of success this year in terms of student and parent engagement. Please feel free to follow @johnstonchemistry on IG
Wondering if other districts have taken away duty free lunches for teachers to supervise lunch in the classroom to provide social distancing.
I induce meaningful learning in my classroom by using concrete situations in the world as a resource to illustrate the learning goals of my lessons.
We're returning to the classroom full time after Spring Break (finally!!!). I am going to be co-teaching for the first time and I'm nervous because I'm new to the school and don't know this teacher well. Any tips on how to get to know her and plan together?
Good Evening My Fellow Christian Educators! I realize it is going to be challenging for me this year...with so many of my students performing below grade level expectations in ELA and MATH and also ensuring that all students follow the COVID Guidelines in the classroom. I still feel hopeful that God will bless me with the knowledge on how to effectively impact each one of those kids. Let's remember to keep all educators lifted in prayer this year. Have a wonderful school year!! God Bless All❤️
I’m interviewing for two jobs. Have an offer at Wells Fargo who is waiting for me to decide. Had a two great interviews at EY which sounds promising- and think I would prefer that role. But no offer yet. Do I tell the recruiter? I don’t want to miss the Wells offer if nothing comes thru for ey.
Looking for insights into / feedback on datadog. Just got pinged by a recruiter and looks like they are a pretty solid firm. Any thoughts on prospects / company culture etc. this opportunity is with their marketing team. Thanks!!
On zoom presentations to clients, does everyone on your team you keep the camera on the whole time, or only when speaking/presenters?
All these early morning flight posts got me feeling some type of way. Another bench week, sweet dreams ladies and gents 🙏

Anyone have a sense (through friends or job hunting) what c-level of a sizeable nonprofit is paid? Wondering comp ranges for that career. Think ceo of org w $50M+ budget and hundreds of employees
D-Day? Finest hour? I’m sure we’re all hearing these ridiculous references on the news to the fight on Covid and the vaccines. Sounds sacrilegious to me. This isn’t the greatest generation by a long shot. This is the generation of whom many flouted medical guidelines, put others at risk for selfish reasons. Whined about work from home. Recklessly traveled in droves over Thanksgiving. Sorry, but just an observation about the hubris that brought out the worst in too many people.
Need some advice - been at the D for a year and have been on the same implementation project for over a year. Have a technical background and am thinking of starting to look for exits to industry but also am curious what strategy projects are and if I would be interested in the work. Is it worth networking onto a strategy project at the D or should I just continue to look for industry exists and then go b school and then try for MBB/T2 ?
I have my interview tomorrow with EY GDS I have prior experience of 1.5years. What are the bands of EY? How much hike shall I expect and negotiate?EY
How does experienced hiring (generally) work in consulting? Are there cycles similar to campus recruiting or is it year-round? Got laid off a few weeks back and the job hunt has been frustrating
Question regarding Salaried Employees and sick days. I’ve never worked in a company where, as a salaried employee, I had to deduct SICK days from my PTO. What are your practices?
We are pitching a big hotel brand. Anyone work on one? What should we know about the category and clients?
Microsoft Teams. Why?
Thinking about a change - been in Businees Processes for a while and thinking about Project Management- what do you all think? Probably would have to get PMP. Would I have to start all over again?
Do all therapists use the line, “I’m not taking any new patients at this time.” When they don’t want to see someone?! I found someone who would be perfect and got that line. Seems like I’ve gotten that line every time I’ve reached out to a counselor… has anyone successfully gotten past that barrier? Do they not want to take on someone who has insurance and would rather get the full bill rate in cash?
What is the rough monetary equivalent of 25,000 American Airlines miles? Trying to get an understanding so I have a fair ask in my complaint letter
