I’m really having to convince my children’s teachers that wearing masks hinders comprehension and language acquisition. I’m a speech therapist and I’ve got MANY and varied and scientifically supported reasons why the teacher wearing a mask is a barrier to learning, but none of them take it seriously. BAH!

I’m terribly sorry for your uphill battle. Please don’t give up the fight for your students’ learning. I’m an inclusion teacher trying to figure out how we can close the learning gaps for 4th-6th graders, but the system is not set up for what would work the best. We’re all in an uphill battle with the kids’ best interests at heart.

Hello, I am trying to prep for my Amazon interview for a BI engineer position. I am trying to come up with SQL and Python questions that the hiring manager could potentially ask me and I was wondering if any advisors or recruiters on Fishbowl could suggest on topic that I need to focus on.

Also, if there is any Amazon employee's or recruiters that I connect and get some advices would be a tremendous help.

Thank you

Things have been super stressful at work lately for a variety of reasons & a couple of weeks ago I decided to raise the issues with my Creative Director.
For context, he’s the reason for a lot of these problems and I (tactfully, I think) said as much. He listened to me patiently but took no responsibility and deflected blame with every issue raised.
Today he asked me to send an email to him about how overworked I am so that he can use it to talk to management. (cont. in comments)

My children’s school district released this statement yesterday making masks optional for everyone, yet the district where I teach (in the same county) still mandates masks for everyone. I guess it makes sense if you DON’T think about it!

My condo association still has signs telling people to wear masks and stay 6’ apart. These are signs that are posted On My Home.☹️. All of the lockdowns started on my Birthday. this year for my birthday I’m going to remove as many signs as I can get my hands on, as a birthday present to myself. 🥳


It is heartbreaking when that weekly day rolls around for students & staff to be Covid-tested at my school. My majority-minority district asked for 80% voluntary participation in this to be more proactive in fighting Covid. 🤦🏻‍♂️ So even though students are at a statistically insignificant risk of getting Covid, & they already can’t learn due to overwhelming fear of Covid everywhere they turn, we’re going to give the kids one more hurdle to inhibit their learning. (NOTE: Photo NOT from my school.)

I work part-time @ Lowe’s to supplement my teacher salary. Over the weekend, the store withdrew its mask mandate for employees. Yet my district still requires masking. The children in our schools are so much less in danger from Covid than are the senior adults shopping for lumber & toilet repair kits. Yet masking rules would seem to indicate the opposite.


Next week is Spring Break. My district is finally making masks optional beginning the 2nd Monday after Spring Break. But I wonder why we don’t start now if they are considering CDC guidelines as they have stated.

Today my school officially put up signs for “masks strongly encouraged” in red. DONT MIND IF I DO! I’m so glad I can walk around without one now. I do not care if anyone judges me. I am so excited about it. Our principal suggested that we “serve our community” with the new protocol, which is silly. Please let me love my life in peace. If my face is a health concern, here is another mask that you can triple up with.
