How to break the phone habit???
I was never a big phone gal (forgetting it at home ignoring it for hours) until COVID. It hit 6 months after my husband lost his dad and he has always been pretty screen dependent. Because shit was heavy and I didn’t want to push (plus I was locked inside with him) I just started echoing his habit of picking up my phone.
I went into private practice this year and I have a TERRIBLE habit of picking up my phone when stressed. I HATE it. (con’t)
If you are an ORM aiming for T10, will taking the GRE as opposed to the GMAT put you at a disadvantage?
Just lateraled and looks like I’ll be taking on a sizeable privacy practice from an associate who left recently. Any benefit to CIPP and CIPM training/certification as a lawyer? In DC if that matters.
Those of you who were successful, how did you go about talking to your counselor about wanting to switch offices/service lines?

I have recently joined TCS and it is pure development project I came from a support background having 2.5 years of experience. I am not able to understand the project and I want a release as there won't be any helping hand in near future and I wouldn't be able to give my 100 percent. What should I do to get a release I have already talked to my manager and lead they are not ready to release me as they are saying that they have hired me for this project.Tata Consultancy Wipro Cognizant Accenture
If an associate exceeds his hours/collections, gets his work done, etc., but is typically in the office from 6:30am - 4:45pm so that he can see his family in the evening, do you view this negatively?

Tell me if this is selfish or not. I adore my family, but since they're doing a very lowkey Christmas situation this year, I really would rather take a weeks vacation on my own. Obviously the holidays are about spending time with those you love, but I'm tired! And I see my entire family at least once a month for a group dinner. Am I a bad daughter/sister if I choose vacation this one time?

I want to give a shout out to a higher up that called me out for not being at a PHYSICAL site for a meeting, even though I was, and proved it by showing my computer camera to all members of the meeting after she went on a 45 sec rant on how everyone should “follow rules”...
A colleague of mine is struggling with a student who screams, cries, and throws fits when it is time to complete tasks. They have created behavior charts with something fun to work towards: it doesn’t work. They have called the parent and they just cry and say that they experience the same issue and they don’t know how to fix it. They have reached out to guidance and all they can say is “sorry, the child isn’t hurting themselves or others. It’s frustrating and I can’t help you.”
Happy Friday everyone..
Anyone else having problems with students using their own personal zoom account or someone else's?
Happy Sunday! What's a new skill you'd like to acquire? I want to have my own garden and learn new things to cook using my own veggies.
Happy weekend everyone enjoy!
We‘ve had two students who have taken their own lives this school year. We are devastated but are looking for initiatives to implement so that kids feel like they can talk to faculty or staff. Ideas?
General Education teacher here. Does anyone have any strategies for students with ODD? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Verdict: Guilty x 3. Now what? How do we talk about this at school? You know it's all the kids will be talking about...

By the way, Massachusetts, I love your appropriate usage of their and they're up there.☝️
LOL I am quite guilty of making this mistake often so had to go back and make sure this wasn't sarcasm! Pleasantly surprised myself! Thank you!
That's surely an annoyance.
I had a student call and order chicken wings from a local pho restaurant while I was actively teaching a lesson. But she said it was OK because her boyfriend was going to deliver her food. 🙄
Cell phones are the bane of education.
What upsets me is when mothers call their student in class and get mad at me for telling them to hang up!
Then they throw in the “what if it’s an emergency…”. Wasting more time. They are not mature enough to grasp phone etiquette. I ask to talk to “mom” and they hang up. I call or email mom after class and it hardly is mom.
Check the student handbook to see what the cell phone policy is. I know some teachers will have their own cell phone policy. If it continues to be a problem, I would talk to your principal and see if you would be allowed to make a no cell phone policy for your class.
I think it varies state by state! When I was in high school I wasn’t allowed to work over a certain number of hours during the week then no more than 40 hours a week in the summer (before I turned 18). This was about 15 years ago though so I’m not sure how much has changed! I also think workplaces are desperate for workers - nearly every restaurant and retail store near me has “help wanted” signs in the window. Managers may know they’re in school but they’re just desperate to have enough employees for their business.
Those are federal regulations, not state-by-state. Some states are stricter, but every state has to follow the federal minimums and maximums.
I used to be a restaurant manager, and was responsible for compliance with minor labor laws. It's a potential $1,00.00 violation for each occurrence.
In my district any phone or wireless earbud is confiscated if it’s visible. Parents must pick them up.
Crap with phones has to come to a halt.
My first thought was that the establishment where they work is hurting for staff and want to assure shifts are covered.
It’s very disrespectful and it is rude. I think some places are truly desperate- not an excuse.
That’s why I don’t teach high school.
It is probably a high school student that is skipping school to work(or last year’s grad) calling the other high school students at school to get help
I would find out the name of their business and call the head of the company! Their work CANNOT interfere with their education! Parents also need to be informed, as well! This not only stops the learning from the person being called but the entire class as well!
I don’t think so, but don’t most schools have rules about students answering calls during instruction?! Advise your students to allow their boss to leave a message and return the call after school. If the student refuses, follow any disciplinary action steps your school has for violating the school rule. If you get any nonsense about ‘emergencies’ inform your students that their boss is welcome to call the school office to get ahold of them in case of an ‘emergency’ during the school day, just as parents are able to.
