Need to leave for Canada in roughly a month because of US visa expiry but worried about potential travel restrictions in Canada given the bad covid situation. Are there any provinces that are not as hard hit by covid? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
Getting paranoid trying to do estradiol lab tests every morning. The labs are so busy. I am so worried I will get covid. How are you guys managing this
There's a lot of pressure from parents for us to return to in person instructionin my district despite rising COVID numbers. Is anyone else experiencing this?
What do you think teaching will be like after COVID? Do you think we'll change anything permanently?
Some of my friends who are parents said they're not worried about covid because it's very low risk for children. They know I'm a teacher and that I'm in a high-risk category. Makes me feel like they don't care about me.
Curious what firms are doing to keep people socializing during COVID. I miss my coworkers but I'm sick of zoom calls.
Do any of your district NOT have a mask mandate?
Some states are cancelling testing for the year. Do you think COVID could be the end of standaridized testing?
Has anyone got their h1-b stamped in Canada recently? Or even planning to? I am worried about getting 221g there and don’t want to travel to India due to covid situation. Please share your experience. Thanks
Hi everyone. I have a big problem, that I (as a consultant) haven’t been able to solve yet. My husband left his 3-decade job (same firm) as a nursing home dietary supervisor due to COVID burnout, without having anything lined up. We are looking for a job for him. He doesn’t want a nursing home, hospital or healthcare job. Also, he doesn’t want any food service or restaurant job. I am looking for any areas that he can use his transferable skills for a career pivot. Ideas?
As an immigrant, I’m grateful for the opportunities afforded to me since moving to the USA. But, I must say, it still doesn’t feel like home after a decade. I still cannot wrap my mind around the gun culture, lack of universal healthcare and emphasis on education (critical thinking). I’m planning to leave in the coming year or so. COVID really made me realize that life is indeed short.

Is anyone else experiencing a new wave of covid anxiety due to the stress of figuring out the holidays? Got in an argument with a family member about safety guidelines and testing needing to happen and I’ve been feeling paralyzed by anxiety all day.
It seems like each county/school district is responding to covid differently and the amount of pressure to return to normal varies. What's going on in your county?

What was your ‘merit’ increase this year? to know what the typical base salary increase was for this year after 2021 having 6-7% inflation. Has anyone successfully negotiated a pay raise for ‘merit’ (read: cost of living) raises? I got 5%. I started at my company beginning of Q2, and was rated as having ‘excellent’ client delivery, but brought down to ‘strong’ because I didn’t do much internal work.
Hey I guess I'm the new kid on the block. Would love to hear some of what's worked and what hasn't for you guys.
