Nah, that would be fine with my district’s parents because our administrators run the school by constantly catering to the parents, which is why admin listens to endless complaints from our teaching staff. After 19 years in the biz, I’m convinced that everyone is doing everything wrong all the time and listening to endless complaints from someone.

I know this shouldn’t be the case but this made me laugh. TRUE!!!!!

... or non-renewed.

Well I guess it depends where one works because I have known several Districts where administration and staff work together very well. Unions should be a part of it. I also believe that it's difficult for me to say what they have to do, because I haven't "walked in their shoes." Don't get me wrong...there can be bad administrators, just like there can be bad teachers, bad custodians, bad cooks, etc. Communication is definitely key. It would be pretty cool if everyone could do each other's job for about a week so that we can all see what everyone else goes through.

Looking for (adaptive, preferably) educational technology for ELA to be used in classrooms as both enrichment for students identified as gifted as well as re-teaching, offering helpful support for students who struggle.

This would be targeted to grades 1-6 primarily, but it needs a high ceiling.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
