I'm looking for some kind of Japanese language classroom environment in the Santa Monica / West LA area. I've been self-learning via Duolingo and other apps for the past year, and I've hit a wall. No problems with reading hiragana/katakana, doing all right with kanji. I currently need classmates and an instructor to motivate me to memorize speaking phrases and practice active conversation. I know there are apps for this type of language exchange, but they're usually 1:1 matches and virtual.
I took advantage of Verizon’s Black Friday deals and got myself the new iPhone yesterday. I’m AMAZED by all the neat things it can do. One of my favorites is that you can grab text from a picture and have it read aloud. This would be so helpful for my students with vision needs and those with reading disabilities. When do we think we’ll actually see this technology in the classroom? Can’t very well put “iPhone” on a students assistive tech section of their IEP 😂
Wondering if other districts have taken away duty free lunches for teachers to supervise lunch in the classroom to provide social distancing.

How do I respond to an observation score of a II in an area where I feel the score was unwarranted? I scored III in all other areas. The score was a II because I had students working on Google Classroom & was finishing up emails before I transitioned into the classroom reading. It’s the week before midterms, and I have duty for 20 minutes of my 50-minute planning period in 1st. I have to respond to these emails in a timely manner & all students were working diligently on the first assignment.

I'm confused: we are supposed to make learning relevant and engaging for students, yet I keep getting reprimanded for including current events in the classroom. The kids are loving it and are really engaged in great debate and discussion. What's the problem?
I recently completed my doctorate in Education Leadership. I’m ready to be out of the classroom, but I still want to be hands on w students. What options do I have? Where do I go from here? It’s such a shame teachers have to leave the classroom to be paid what they deserve.

How often do MBB firms raise pay, specifically for the undergrad and post-MBA levels? I know that they all raised bases about 10k fairly recently, and with investment banks raising pay yet again, will we see a pay increase sooner rather than later? I guess I don’t know anything about the history of MBB pay increases and what factors go into an increase. Would love some insight on this topic if anyone has some, as I’m incoming at one of the firms next year.

Did anyone here have a kid before, during, or after an MBA? I’m in banking and am considering doing an MBA in 3 years when i’m 27. My biggest concern with that plan is that i’ll just be starting off a new post-MBA career in the age area where I would like to start a family (~29). I definitely know I want to have at least 1 kid before 30 but am conflicted if pursuing an MBA will upheave those plans or if I’ll have to choose between career ambition and family
