What agencies have the “coolest” people?
Just turned 40 & am starting the process for egg freezing. Got tested & everything is good for my age. Am I insane to freeze my eggs at 40? Dating in NY during the pandemic has been abysmal. Not that it was great before.
Thinking of resigning soon. Should I book an impromptu vacation to use the remainder of my PTO?
A few months ago I asked the question about using travel smart routers to host a VPN to disguise your location. The purpose of this is to have a working vacation in a foreign country, without telling work about it. My work computer has restricted access so I cannot install a VPN service on the computer without help from IT. My work around is a smart router that can directly host a VPN. Now I am in Cabo with a VPN to the US. I’ve included some details in a comment below. AMA
Good birthday gifts for SO in his late 20s in the ~$300 range? He got me a nice winter scarf so I’d like to get him something of similar value. Unfortunately he has a summer birthday, otherwise I’d do something like a nice pair of gloves.

Has anyone heard of Doug reeves? Just curious a district in my area is having him speak at a virtual meeting coming up on ways to improve D and F grades.He has a sketchy past from being in jail for embezzling money for an organization and years ago he was accused of molesting a coworkers child then several years go by and he was acquitted. Regardless if he was acquitted or not why would a district hire this professional speaker to speak to a group of teachers?? How about someone with a cjeanrr

STUDENT MOTIVATION - Thursday March 31st 8:00pm EST
Are you struggling with motivating your students? Or are you doing things in your room that have kids SUPER INSPIRED? Either way come zoom with other teachers and talk about what you do in your classroom and learn from others!
Those of you teaching elementary students simultaneously (remote/in-person): Are all your students allowed to use Chromebook’s/Ipads while you teach? Also, are you using a webcam?
At my school there are buttons being passed out that say, “She/her, he/him they/them.” I have no problem with anyone wearing these buttons but I don’t like feeling pressure to wear one myself. No one is telling me to wear one but people talk about how inclusive it is to wear one and most staff do. I really don’t think I’m being transphobic by not wearing one but I just don’t want to wear one. What is your opinion on this?
Good Thursday morning everyone 😀. This is your morning DJ spinning the tunes 🎶 to get you movin and groovin through your day.

What’s the best summertime snack? I LOVE fresh picked strawberries (and blueberries later in the summer).
I need some advice! I am a new teacher in a Behavior unit. I have a token Economy in my classroom and a leveled behavior system. Some of my kiddos are not responding to it. They are k-2 students.
Now SEL is under attack. We’ve entered into the world of the McCarthyism.
“Patriots" would claim they're just protecting children from deranged teachers openly endorsing suicide. Yes. They believe teachers are encouraging their students to commit suicide through SEL. Education First Alliance argues that SEL is anti-white, anti-Christian, and anti-American.
A child refused to move and was about to knock a shelf over. I picked her up, and as I did so, she dead weighted (dropped) causing me to poke her in the underarm by accident. You would have thought it the end of the world. The rest of the day she said she was scared of me. Then would ask for something (play dough, my lunch, stickers). When I told her no, she would cry and say she was scared of me and she wanted her mom. (The reason same reason she was upset to start with!).How to tell Mom?
I see principals reaching out to each staff member just to check in. Some are even delivering flowers and handwritten cards.
Who is relaxing, taking a break from everything and just chilling? That would be me… I don’t know about y’all but this spring break is well needed!!
What free resources for science do you use? Preferably for middle school, but I will take anything that is useful. Thanks!
My school has not so subtly hinted that they would love for me to teach 6th grade next year if I comfortable with it. I usually teach 4th/5th. 6th grade teachers what’s 6th like compared to upper elementary! TIA!

Ha! My 14 year old daughter is known for texting me from the other room at home. 🤦♀️
Haha, this is funny. I can admit, I'm guilty of texting people when I'm in the same room as them. 😅
😆 🤣 😂, truth!!!
My kids text me here inside our home!! How funny is this????
My boys when they were younger. This is SO true lol
We actually had a student say "i'll text you" when asked how they came up with the answer. HAHA they never cease to amaze me
The problem is you're not even supposed to have your phone in class buddy.. gotcha!
HAHAHAHAHH its only a matter of time until one of my students asks me this for real.
Did anyone notice that the answer to the problem is wrong?
In his defense it would save so much time
Oof! I can already sense this is going to happen soon. God forbid!
