I feel like my classroom is really small. It’s an interior room, so there are no windows, which doesn’t help. I’m looking for suggestions that make my room feel larger and brighter. Thanks!

Has a fight ever broken out in your classroom with your students? Just had to break up my first one 🤦🏻♀️
Ok…I’m curious. I pretty much have to beg, barter and steal to get supplies for my classroom. Do teachers in states with legal cannabis have this problem? It’s my understanding that sales tax from its purchase goes to schools, or is that all smoke and mirrors…No pun intended. 😉
How do you teach and enforce organizational skills in the classroom? If you require a notebook or binder what is included in it?
Do you have classroom pets? Our science teachers hamsters keep having hamsters lol. This is like the 4th set!
How do you collect data on writing goals/objectives? I struggle because it’s hard for me to judge how much the student did independently or whether they had help from a para, classroom teacher, peer editor, etc. I can’t be in every class every time they are working on writing!
For those of you who are early risers, what are some of your tricks for getting out of bed early? I hate feeling rushed in the morning because I feel like it transfers over to my classroom.

For those of you who have made or are making a school switch, what did you do with all of your classroom stuff over the summer?
What are best practices for classroom management/behavior when it comes to flexible seating? I find that students I’ve worked with in the past argue about who gets the 3 flexible seats in the room.
So, what if your kid is in a 6 person Montessori class with no interaction outside of their “pod”, serious disinfection and prevention practices and all the other parents are super socially conscious and aware. 2 teachers per classroom and no infections during summer school on campus. Yay or nay?
I’m looking into switching to admin, I’ve been in the classroom 10 years. I know I won’t want to be in the classroom in 20 but don’t see myself doing something other education right now. Do you have any advice on what skills I need to build for being a good support to teachers?

I’m a third year tax associate with my LLM. I left the IRS for a small boutique M&A firm that had a great reputation in my region. I have been at the firm for 3 weeks and I just found out that 2 of the 4 partners are leaving and taking a bunch of the senior associates with them. The only tax partner is leaving to go in-house and semi retire. I am going to be the only tax associate at the firm. So what’s the play here, look for a way out as fast as possible or ride it out for the time being?
I am curious how other inclusion teachers are being utilized when the school is doing remote learning. I find that I am sitting in the zoom class and have very little opportunity to contribute.

Renters/homeowners/earthquake insurance ?: I’m reviewing my renewal policy docs for my renters and earthquake policies (im in Los Angeles). I’m 32F 🐠 single no kids.
