Drop your classroom management ideas here. For my school it sure is nice to have a principal who supports a no phone policy.
In a science middle school classroom, aside from materials manager, secretary, botanist & cleanup... can you think of any other jobs for students?
What novels do you use in your ELA classrooms? I am curious to see what everyone else is using !
Hi I am a new teacher intern hired yesterday. I will be teaching second grade. School reopens on Aug 17. I do not have my own materials. I do not know what materials are there in my classroom. What should I buy? I will be talking to the Principal on Monday to find out more. I am very excited and nervous at the same time. Any tips and suggestions for me would be helpful.
Hey Coaches! I’m Alyssa, and I’m one of the Community Leaders here at Fishbowl. I’ve been in the classroom for 10 years and a classroom coach for 6 (mainly elementary/Pre-K). Excited to be here!
Always a student. This helps me relate to my own. Mistakes. Confusion. Oopsies like giving the wrong answer when we KNOW it. Learning keeps me off any high horse because sure as the world I’d otherwise get knocked down. We are all students in our classrooms. An indirect bonus is that the connection we make by remembering what it’s like to be a student helps us manage the class better. We relate. We admit. We connect.

tomorrow I begin my first teaching job, it is first grade and I have had no time to prep. School started almost 2 weeks ago I need ideas for classroom management and math centers. Any help?
I got a bad observation. He said one of my students were not awake and lively on Zoom. Ugh. What? I see teachers that take 30-50 days off some working 2 days a week days. They get perfect marks. I can't even look my principal in the face now.
Organization is critical for classroom management. Try assembling units into Google Slides with links to ppts, activities, etc. Color code them according to the rainbow: Unit 1 red, Unit 2 orange etc. It takes a minute at first but the payoff is a one click upload for next year! PS I use the same color code system with felt tip pens to grade my classes: 1st hr red, 2nd hr orange etc.
What are some LGBTQ+ books you would like to see included in a classroom library?
My choice would have to be “Prince & Knight” by Daniel Haack.
Does anyone use Wit and Wisdom in their classroom, and have any advice? What are the pros and cons? We will be rolling it out in August.
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!
Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing. We struggle as we find ourselves constantly reminding students to keep their masks on. We struggle to keep them engaged and to teach. One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.
Has anyone been hired for a support position like instructional coach only and then put back in the classroom for multiple grade levels at the middle school while doing some of your actual job
Does anyone use Fundations in 1st grade? We are piloting it in our district as a tier 1 for all kids as our daily phonics program. Trying to figure out how to set up classroom w/ all individual tools?

I’m interested to hear from anyone who has stepped away from being a Partner. I am finding that I simply cannot balance work and personal life and be a good “partner” in both aspects. We’re you able to find a new career which enabled you to fulfil your ambitions whilst being a good husband/wife/parent?
Mental health related: how do you “give yourself closure”?
My ex broke off our engagement last October. I have done a lot of reflection, growing, even did a few months of therapy, etc. Our relationship ending devastated me, but I look back now and feel like I dodged a bullet in many ways. BUT I still feel weirdly heartbroken - I think about them a lot, miss them, even though I know I’m better off. I’m still grieving and it’s exhausting. I know I’m lacking closure - but how do I get there?
And the best part-- it's under the table 💲
Trying to get a 45 y/o sibling in to consulting (was an entrepreneur prior in the restaurant industry). No college degree but willing to bust his butt to learn. Books/online courses recommended pls
I'm 32 years old and have a AMH level of 1.2 which is very low for my age. Did a vaginal ultrasound and they only found one follicle on each ovary. I have started IVF but my chances are so slim this will work now. I find out in about 7 days if we go ahead and try and collect anything from me... who would of thought at age 32 this could be happening. I'll be starting menopause in the next year or two...
Is anyone else in the same situation as me? Any success stories of IVF working for you.
Has anybody relocated recently to banglore to join Shell.

What would be the band for a person of around 8YoE in HCL Software?
And what is the salary range for that band?
Has anyone had experience transferring from audit to tax? If so, how are you enjoying it?
Hi All, I was offered a role with Aecoms San Francisco office working with an energy client for a midlevel associate environmental planner. I wanted to gauge what is a general salary that ones been offered on this team. I felt lowballed at $79k/annual, initially offered 74k. This is given that I had 1.5 years in land use planning and a recent masters graduate in urban planning.
I just binge ate a waffle, avocado toast and chocolate brownie and feel like crap. 🙋♀️
Hear me out! I left my 15 year career in the corporate world to pursue being a realtor.1) It was never boring
2) It was the most challenging
3) It was extremely rewarding to be able to help families find their dream homes
Do you prefer Python or R for your analyses?

Does anyone know of any entry level data scientist positions open in their teams? Can you refer please! Thanks :)
Anyone here did or in the process of doing a PhD in Data Science related programs? Pure Data Science, Applied Statistics, Machine Learning...? I'm applying to a couple universities at the moment but my research interest is still a very vague concept in my head (I just know id like to do something in the retail field but not a specific DS area yet). Would really appreciate any tips on how to identify a research area and what kind of DS research areas could be useful future applications in retail?
What's better? Go back to school for a master's($14k) in information systems that will teach Net, SAP, SQL Server, UML, XML, Rapidminer, Tableau, Python, R, Blockchain, cybersecurity tools, and more OR get certifications for some of these platform? I currently have 2.5 yoe, have some work experience with Tableau and different SQLs, validating data, etc. My goal is to break into this industry and have enough skill to exit Accenture within a year or two. Currently in the TDP program.
Has anyone used Tableau or other BI platforms to show metrics on your teams utilization. Certain key fields that helped or maps charts that were visually appealing?
Thoughts on exiting to a senior data analyst role with Uber? 3.5 yoe and by now I know consulting isn’t right for me
Quick vent. Had a SQL test today for a role I was excited about. 30 minutes to answer 4 questions. I knew how to answer all of the questions but barely finished 1 correct query and 1 partially correct query in the time limit. Probably won’t get the role now. 😕
I have a technical case study interview with QuantumBlack coming up for a data engineer role. Anyone who's been through this? Any specific topics need to brush up to be better prepared?
Accenture 🐠 what are your titles and levels for the d&a team? I will be starting the interview process for aws. TY
Are there any good dplyr like libraries for Julia?
I tried queryverse a while back but it annoyingly returned all your grouping variables as tuples if I recall correctly.
If anyone is thinking of leaving interview prep until you've got time - don't. All it takes is a few hours a week to keep yourself new offer ready. I didn't invest that time, and ashamed to say, the timeboxed job hunt is now pretty scary. Offshore recruiter mail has become cause for highs, and the anxiety about making rent in a few months is real. Can't imagine if I had a family relying on me... Hope this little anecdote tips the scale for anyone on the edge of prepping. Don't make my mistake.
If anyone is interested in data analytics with some accounting knowledge with over a year experience out of college and in the US, feel free to DM

Does anyone else feel outdated? I work in NLP and I feel like something new is coming out everyday. Hard to keep track. Any advice/tips?
I am an ETL developer who got a chance to work on spark recently within my organization. Initially struggled and now got comfortable with scala spark in my project. I am looking to change job in data engineering but most JDs I see are asking for pyspark and not scala spark, only few are asking scala or Java or python.
Should I really learn python and pyspark as well to be able to find more opportunities? Or should I only apply for scala based roles?
Also I heard from one of the friend
The techniques are helpful, but I've typically seen R used more in academia and Python in industry.
And, as above, that's not a long time to practically understand the concepts in detail, but maybe a good opportunity for you to understand what you want to pursue further.
New people don’t need to worry about this stupid R vs Python debate. They’re both great languages with a ton of benefits. Once you know one it’s not too hard to be able to use the other.
Learn techniques first, the language is just the implementation of that technique.
Man I find it funny how you spend just a week on these topics when there are some courses entirely dedicated to them.
To answer your question though, yes, I've seen those methods used in the wild. Will one week of learning be sufficient though to prep you for interviews and jobs? I think you would have to continue modeling or hone in on one method to get the most value out of this class. Just my two cents
Completely agree on this. I spent an entire quarter just learning good old linear regression and another learning GLM (Logistic and other generalized linear models). The topics shared by OP would be very high level overviews and you will have to spend a lot of time reading these in detail outside the course work
Yep looks good...specially if it has a project at the end
Topics are worthwhile. However, I would highly recommend taking a similar course in a CS or Stats department. They might cover less in a semester but the depth will make you a better data scientist
It’s a decent survey of common methods, the order seems a little weird to be though. Worth taking an entire course in regression and it’s extensions. It will help expose you to a few techniques and you can see if you actually like it before further study.
You can tell it’s also different from the order of the book used for the course.
Thank you all!!!
The concepts are helpful to know and understand, I’d also try to see if you can gain some practical experience in using that in your day-to-day or doing some outside work to practice.
I’d also recommend learning Python as it’s used more and more (and in some companies almost exclusively) in data science roles.
I would also look at some data scientist roles that you’re specifically interested in and from the job listing see 1) what tool is used mostly, and 2) what concepts are especially used that the role calls out, that can also prob help you figure out what especially to spend more time on initially.
But even so, get EDA and visualization down pat (including data cleansing) bc in many roles that will be the majority of what you’ll be doing. Lots of great free datasets out there to practice on, too!
Looks like a great overview of common topics in DS. Would probably be enough for you to understand when you’d apply each topic in practice, which goes a long way, but you’d probably need to dive deeper to get a real understanding.
Also would 100% recommend python over R unless you really want to work in life sciences. But even so there’s an increasing amount of python there
Echoing the others’ thoughts in that this course seems worthwhile for you to get a high level overview of what they each do.
Don’t worry about the R/Python debate for now. Focus on the concepts because that’ll set a solid base for you. As you go through the concepts, try to think about how they apply to your everyday life. The R/Python skills will follow with practice. Good luck!!
