Split classes take away joy! We have 6-7 classes at each grade level and they split 1-2 into the remaining 5 so we can have a 5 day schedule. Big classes plus the classroom culture homeroom teachers work so hard to achieve are ruined. Advice? (Plus we are told to "not be negative" by admin.)

Yep, I hate the extra large groups too! Sorry I don't really have advice I just cope.

I found it was more effective to simplify my projects and goals with an overly-packed schedule, to not overly stress. If administration complained to ME, I said "I'm doing the best I can under the circumstances", and that shut them up.

Ugh I remember they did that one year with kinders. They split one class between 3. Imagine their excitement each day to see the other class (rowdy) and coming from 2 different management styles.

Hi! I’m new here :) I have been out of school one a year and started as a brand side art director. I always wanted to work in advertising bit after this year and chatting to so many people, it seems like brandside really has so many perks. What do people think are great brands to work for as a creative, for the work and also the culture?


At what point do you just quit if everything about your role / company is toxic (asking for a friend). More context: High turnover org, not very efficient / productive, Fortune 500 company that everyone knows about. Amazon-like backstabbing culture. But this person does not have another job offer to take in hand to leave. But the toxicity of the work environment makes it harder to put in 100% for the job search. Fishbowl thoughts / advice?

Has anyone struggled with Apple recruiters taking forever to schedule interviews? The hiring manager loved me and the recruiter asked for more interview times but it’s been 3 days and nothing has been scheduled. They did the same thing after the phone screening as well…. And during that initial phone call I was basically told I’d be done interviewing by this week but now all of a sudden it’s 3-4 weeks from now??

Seems like a disconnect between HR and the actual hiring teams…

Anyone here have experience with schedules on a 20 day rotation? It’s my second year at a new very large elementary school.

Each week’s schedule is different for 4 weeks (20days) and then it starts all over again. 17 of those days I teach 6 or 7 classes and 3 of them I teach 5 classes. I’m terrified of this school year!

Would love to hear how others in this situation have dealt, especially with organization of schedule! I need to have the whole 20 day schedule visible somehow so I can plan

I love teaching art but am having to teach remotely to 1150 kids, k - 5. Have about 54 amazing elementary art teachers in my district that share SO much! I could retire (34 yrs), but just don’t want to because I love what I do! Feeling like my students aren’t getting what they should because I am struggling with Zoom, Microsoft, safe YouTube, bitmoji, embedding, downloads, editing, etc. Anyone else feeling this way?


After 18 years, I lost my art room to a classroom this year in order to spread out kids due to Covit19. They said we can’t hand out papers.. kinda thinking art is remote for all. I will do lessons on google classroom with live lesson to classrooms and home. I was told special area teachers may be “repurposed”. We will be used like a TA. One class will be spread out two rooms.Aday teacher in one room, I help in other room. B day teachers switch 😳😷☹️.. I know I’m lucky to have a job but.
