Absolutely true for me. We try to hide our personal lives, but kids can tell when you are off. They see you happy, ill, distracted.... I am a human, just like they are.


I have been told to leave my problems at the door. Teachers are not allowed to show anything but happiness and excitement.


We have community circles often, and talk about things that are going on and our feelings. I share personal things with my students (within reason) and love that they share their lives with me. By teaching virtually and seeing my students’ parents (who sit next to their kids) every day we have all grown closer as a classroom family! 💕


This is something truly special! Thank you for sharing.

I work in Product, and I’ve been thinking about getting my MBA/MPP combo to transition into more tech for social impact roles.

Are my worries warranted?

I am newly in a wheelchair and am unable to find clear information on the ADA website about what my job is required to do. I’ve talked with my Union Rep and they are checking. I’m requesting to be on a 504 plan, but I have no idea if they are required to add handicapped entrances or not. I know I have to scan my badge to use the button, but trying to scan my badge, open the door, and not drop anything seems a bit unattainable to me at the moment. Anyone have some insight or dealt with this?


How are most teachers plan on giving assessments to students who are remote learners? My school is everyday half-day for students (guardians) who chose to be in school. All other students are remote learners every day. That means I had classes with students who are physically there as student to are there through Google meets. I'm just trying to see what other teachers are doing to balance the two types of learners and how give fair assessments.....
