Mamas with more than one kid, what’s the age gap between your children? And now that you’ve experienced it, do you think a different age gap would have been better?
I had my first a few months ago, and while I was sure I’d be one and done, the maternal feeling is now on overdrive 🙃 I’m wondering what would be a good time to try for a second.
I am 38, and the first baby came after two miscarriages so my chances are not great (especially chances of a planned age gap) But it doesn’t hurt to hope 😊
I’m a senior consultant with a few years experience doing big programme delivery and TOM design work.
I feel a like I’ve hit a ceiling, work is starting to get more repetitive, less interesting and challenges are mostly stakeholder management issues rather than technical.
I’d like to move onto something more intellectually stretching, whilst also accelerating my earning potential.
Does anybody have any ideas on possible career moves that would suit?

Hi! I’m a first-year associate working at a large regional firm. I attended a well-ranked, but regional law school and my grades weren’t stellar. School was never very motivating for me, and I put way more effort into internships and networking than my studies during law school. Luckily, I love to network and landed an awesome job at a big firm. Eventually, I’m hoping to work in-house. My question is this, will my grades always follow me? I’ve heard that with time and experience, not so much.

What accountability systems does your school have in place for missing assignments/zeroes? Trying to help with ideas for next year!
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?
I'm currently a teacher in Michigan, but my family is moving to Texas for my husband's job. What does the process look like for becoming certified to teach in a different state?
Need an opinion. I just finished week 2. I do an hour after school club at my district once a week on zoom and none of my own schools students participate. I received a very nasty and aggressive email from a parent making threats and hyperbolic accusations so I forwarded the email to the personnel at the district.

In case you never got to see the New York Times article about air quality in classrooms, I’m posting it here for you. It makes some very important points about creating the safest possible environment for students and teachers. 1. Open windows if it all possible 2. Place air purifier centrally 3. Don’t place fans in a way where the air is pointed at people
Have a great year and keep yourself and your students safe!

Favorite meme as a high school EBD teacher.
As a young teacher do you keep your age hidden from students in order to avoid losing their respect?
Did any schools retain a virtual option? It was difficult when we were doing hybrid and teachers were expected to do both, but I would love in the future (hopefully sooner than later) for some rendition of this to be available to students with disabilities and others who for whatever reason attending in person is an issue. With some adjustments, it was a great way to make education more accessible and introduced a new way to learn that some students even preferred and excelled in.
