What was that trainwreck last night?!?!? I know we're not supposed to talk about politics, but my comment is bipartisan. Our gov is a mess and our leaders unbecoming! What will our students learn from this? What can we do to make it a teachable lesson?
Hey folks, my firm is giving us $1k to spend on professional development but I have to spend it by end of year. Any suggestions on where & how to spend it to better improve my chances of an MBA?

Are there any National Board certified Middle Childhood Generalists out there that could give me some ideas on a DOK 4 science lesson with the human body? I teach 4th grade math, and I have a great idea for math involving group work. However, I’m lost when it comes to science and showing more than one teaching strategy since they want to see group work. HELP! Ha 😆

I’ve been burned by the stock market before trading options (when the market bottomed out in 2016) and I learned my lesson on recklessly speculating on spikes and dips in the market. Anyone else feel like this situation is gonna create a class of retail investors who are over confident in the “ease” of timing the market, without doing an research, after all this dies down?
Best places to learn SQL and/or Python for free? I heard of code academy and started there but once I got a couple lessons in it asked me start a free trial/pay for the pro version. I don’t mind paying to learn either but just wanted know if I’m going pay should I still use code academy or something else?
Hey fellow Disney Lovers, I generally have a few lessons in which I can use Pixar shorts to teach students how to identify and discuss literary signposts, how to identify and explain the development of theme, character traits, and other narrative elements. What are some of your favorite shorts?

What to do when a recruiter won’t let you negotiate salary? I have a feeling this person doesn’t want to go back to leadership with a counter offer versus there being an actual cap on the offer.

Let's get a thread going of parental leave policies? What's the parental leave policy at your agency
Chicago Tribune: Huge crowd gathers at Rotary Hill near Naperville District 203 offices to demand area schools reopen. Hundreds of Naperville-area parents & students rallied Monday to urge local school boards to bring students back to the classroom and the playing field. Hmm...so all these parents just want to send their kids into schools do die, right? And kill all the teachers and their families too. All out of pure selfishness.
There’s a company that I really want to work for in the future, is it possible to convince them I apply for my green card now and then join them once the EAD card comes in post-GC approval?
Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
Which is better if want to switch off to MBB: KPMG Strat v Accenture Management consulting?
