I’m a SPED teacher, & my principals ALWAYS seem to visit my room as soon as I give my student(s) a break from their work or when they’ve finished early everything I had planned. They RARELY come in when I’m actually in the middle of making progress on a lesson. It makes me feel like I have to be defensive & justify why the students aren’t working. Does this happen to anyone else?

Admin walking in at exactly the wrong time? Yes, this happens to me *all* the time. It's frustrating, but if they're reasonable, then they should be aware that this is the natural ebb and flow of a classroom - rigor can't happen all day every day free from breaks.
It may sound silly, but maybe when you give these breaks you could write (in large letters) "BRAIN BREAK" on the board so they know when they come in that's what's going on. With the push for mental health as of late, this should be seen as a good thing. 😊

Guys if you are using apps such as Grindr and Scruff, please be careful. One guy that I was chatting with on Scruff in Pittsburgh found my Facebook account and since my profile was public, he found information of my family members and threatened to send pictures, chat history to my family members. Lesson learnt - make your social media accounts secure (don’t make your Facebook profile profile). He has blocked me since then, so I couldn’t report his profile

How do you best support your students who do not speak English? I have four ELL’s in my 6th grade ELA class and they don’t receive push-in or pull-out Bilingual support during my class. Do you pull them for small group to provide instruction separately or do you just try to use google translate to translate your lessons and the work? Any best practices? I’d love some help.

Has anyone seen any unique places to find UX portfolios or post jobs other than the usual suspects?
Some UX Slack channels were doing well for a while but I definitely don’t see as much traction there. Meetups obviously came and went. Even the portfolio sites like Dribbble and Behance don’t seem that same.

Whew this group is a relief to find. No one at my job knows I have ADHD, and I only have one other friend with it. I manage a team of people and the stress of checking, double checking, and triple-checking everything to make sure I'm not forgetting anything or behind on anything is insane. I've kind of got the hang of keeping focus during work hours, but I'm just constantly on edge that someone will notice or I'll start falling behind.

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. Love is not rude, it is not selfish, and it cannot be made angry easily. Love does not remember wrongs done against it.  Love is never happy when others do wrong, but it is always happy with the truth.  Love never gives up on people. It never stops trusting, never loses hope, and never quits. Love will never end.

Even in the Christian world, we can learn from secular teachers and scholars who have familiarized themselves with Biblical principles, even if they do not realize it. Who are some of these that you follow? Do you follow them often or sporadically? Currently I'm listening to the Jordan Peterson podcasts....www.jordanbpeterson.com/podcast/. Lots of great information from this psychologist who eventually found Christ. He has several audio books out as well. Worth your time to listen IMO...

Have been discussing Neitzsche's Parable of a Madman in my English 10 class. It's super cool how a prominant atheist's message about what you should place your hope/trust in has actually opened the door for tons of discussion about how everyone (atheists and theists) at some point need to grapple with the question: What is the source of your truth and morals? And in this parable, Nietzsche kindof admits/laments that this is a tough question for atheists to answer.

Hi I’m new here. Just wanted to say hi. Is anyone having difficulty with CRT being pushed? I’m being forced into training but have been told by an attorney for The International Christian Education Association I cannot be forced to provide the training. Had anyone had to deal with this yet? I’m the principal and would be expected to provide the training to my staff. Out of 25 teachers probably 3 approve of CRT. I’m not looking to start a heated conversation just truly seeking advice.
