My husband never reads and wants to start reading as a new hobby. What is a good book that you would recommend for a 40 year old man? Not self help books, but maybe something with action. I think he would like the Bourne series, but he saw all the movies so he's not interested, but something similar.
Book recommendations for using my 3 audible credits? Prefer narrators who aren’t dryer than the Sahara. Would like something business/ consulting related if exists. Also enjoy nonfiction, sci Fi and fantasy
Just moved to the city and I'm excited to get out and try some new restaurants. What's your all-time favorite spot to grab a bite in Charlotte? (Bonus points if you can tell me what makes it awesome!)
Hi I am a new teacher intern hired yesterday. I will be teaching second grade. School reopens on Aug 17. I do not have my own materials. I do not know what materials are there in my classroom. What should I buy? I will be talking to the Principal on Monday to find out more. I am very excited and nervous at the same time. Any tips and suggestions for me would be helpful.
Anybody reading books about real estate investment or related topics? Drop your recommendations! (Except Rich Dad, Poor Dad 🙄🤢)
I am moving classrooms, and my new classroom has a bathroom. I’m looking for literature that discusses bathroom etiquette and any other suggestions you might have for using a bathroom in a class.
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? 🤩
What are your end of year goals for your classroom? What about for your personal life?
It's lame but my only goals are to see my students ace their pre-christmas math "tests" and to spend some time over the break painting & setting up my 2nd bedroom.
In an Essentials/Contained middle school classroom do you request basic school supplies or items specifically for the students to have, ie their own binder, pencils and pencil bag?
What are some easy to make, low stress holiday meals for a school holiday staff party? I was "volunteered" by our principal to set it up this year (🙄). I'm making decorated sugar cookies but kind of drawing a blank when it comes to savory dishes. Bonus points if you have any adult holiday themed games or fun drinks to suggest! It's off school property and there will be a bar (thank god), for context.

Best ways to root out the red flags in a teaching job interview and a school tour? I'm finally ready to get back to the classroom but don't want to end up at another toxic place where admin doesn't look out for the teachers at all. I know to avoid places where janitorial stuff is being ignored or other health and safety issues, but this is only my second interview (worked for 10 years at my old school, left during covid). TIA!
What kind of behavior systems do you use in your classroom? I teach 1st grade. I’m tired of using the folder/calendar system with 🙂/🙁 and a prize box. Any ideas?

Trademark confusion question. New to TMa here.
Do you think these names would be confusingly similar in same class of services?
MANUFACTURETALK vs MANUFACTURE HAWK
Not real names. Both start with same term - diff is between talk and hawk? I think it wouldn’t be confusingly similar as talk and hawk elicit diff meaning to a consumer. What you think?
I have about 7 years in advertising account management and looking to change careers into recruiting (preferably corporate or tech recruiting) it’s challenging to switch careers but will I need to start from scratch? Or can I get away with recruiting jobs that require 2 years experience? I have a lot of transferable skills

This year our staff meetings have become stressful. People struggle to politely disagree, and I feel like we’re reprimanded for weird things (like too many people taking the same sick day). Any advice
Interesting read. I had no idea this was happening until a friend from FL told me it saved a friend's life and had him go from sick to golfing rapidly. Interesting read.

I’m a SPED teacher at alternative school. I am the only SPED staff. I provide services the best I can even when we have way more students than a normal caseload. When there’s a student with significant needs in academics or behavior I let the teachers know that kid’s needs and exactly how to support in their class. My requests are so simple and take like 30 seconds to implement, but I feel like no one even tries. Then they act baffled that the kid is so “immature” or “disrespectful.” Advice?
Has anyone been using sound walls instead of sight word walls? My school is moving toward sound walls and I need some advice!
