I need to talk with a teacher about inappropriate behavior some parents are complaining that she has in the classroom. How do I approach this without accusing her or making her feel ambushed?
Has anyone ever had a student in their classroom who became very sick part way through the school year? What did you do to show support as a teacher/school community?
Hi! Do any of you incorporate Montessori concepts/strategies in your public ed classroom? Care to share? Admin is open to it as long as it's standards-aligned.
Has anyone had the conversation on how we get Ss and Ts ready for returning in the fall? I’m not talking about mask usage, hand washing times, physical distancing in classrooms, etc. I don’t think we can expect Ts and Ss to come back and just hop right into academics. Need sometime to process together, get some SEL, be face to face social again, etc. Just wondering if districts out there have gotten a head start on this task.
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. Has anyone found anything that does both well? Looking especially for a tool that teachers can get behind and that students enjoy/find easy to use. What do you love? What do you hate? This would be targeted to grades 1-6 primarily, but it needs a high ceiling.
For JHI....what is your school/classroom policy on cell phones? We have a policy but it’s not really followed so each teacher does their own thing. It’s a nightmare!

I previously used Donors Choose to fundraise for my classroom but no longer can because they don’t cover private specialized schools (where I am now) What other sites have you used to fundraise?
Homework... it’s my worst nightmare in the classroom. I have to give it but have flexibility in creating my own policy. Please share what you give, how you collect, and/or grade!! THANKS!
Teachers, how long do you think it would take you to get back into the groove of teaching once all students return to the classroom?
For classrooms that have 1:1 devices (chromebooks, Netbooks, tablets) how much time do you think is appropriate for students to be on them at school? What programs are they using? Grades 2-8?
Has any special education teacher left the classroom to go into admin work? Did you miss working one-to-one with the kids daily?
My room this year is really warm, what’s the best classroom fan that can cool an entire class?
Any suggestions on science or social studies curriculum to use in a self-contained (setting 4) EBD classroom?
Bad form to take sick days for mental health during your two-week notice period? Leaving a very toxic environment thankfully.
Worked hard, won business and asked for a raise - got 10%. Now closer to median salary for my YOE. But it’s not in effect until my first year anniversary which is 2-3 months away. Should I accept the raise or negotiate?

Question for the group. I am an experienced individual currently searching to get out of private and into public. I am a CFE and Certified Technology Business Management Executive (CTBME) with an MBA and am scheduled to take AUD of CPA on May 13th. Am I barking up the wrong career tree to try to exchange an extensive and diverse career into what appears to be specialization within public? I really enjoy project work as the monthly grind has worn very, very thin. Opinions?

What to do if you’re only 40 hours away from meeting the Covid bonus target due end of Sept. and your partners don’t give you work even though you begged everyone for work?
I'm having difficulty making personal connections with students this year. I teach hybrid, so I have a room half full of students in front of me and half at home on zoom. I have tried playing educational games, I greet them each time I see them, I try to do small talk, I make positive comments on their work, it just isn't happening. Any ideas?
Any anecdotes on what happened to MBA consulting interns who received return offers during the last recession? Were offers rescinded? Feeling pretty nervous.
Kellogg (no money) vs. Darden (50% scholarship). At a boutique consulting firm now and trying to move to MBB. Which do I choose? I love both schools.
I just got laid off and I just don’t know what to say “if” I ever get an interview. Any tips would be appreciated. I know when you get laid off, no one wants to hire you.
Just got turned down by Amazon after two extensive writing assignments, 6 interviews and hours spent preparing. And their policy doesn’t allow them to give feedback when an offer is not made. Talk about a bruised ego. The only silver lining is staying long enough to collect the October and January big law bonuses and then I’m out! The question is where else pays like Amazon?!
