We have an autistic non-verbal child in my school who is destructive. He tore my room apart last year (I do not have him as a student. He got into my room during class change.)
So I learned today that my old CEO wanted to fire me while I was on maternity leave because "she isn't bringing in revenue and she's costing money." And he said I took "extra time" even though there was no actual policy, so they told me to take at least 12 weeks AND the COO approved it herself without issue.
I want to text everyone who still works there and put CEO on blast. Someone tell me not to.
Biglaw M&A partners: how do you make time for kids? I’m a midlevel and my husband and I are thinking of having our first kid in the next 3-4 years (close to partnership for me). Is it possible to have evenings / weekends off as a partner (outside of signings/closings) to spend with the kids or should I consider going in-house instead in the next few years?

I’m 8 weeks pregnant and have thrown up every day the past two weeks. I know it will peak over the next few weeks and hopefully will get better after that but working is so hard when I feel like this. Any words of encouragement or advice to help get through this if you dealt with this?
Hi- looking for advice. Im 37 weeks and picked out my baby’s name. I knew my mil did not like it but I recently found out she hates it. Like it’s a continuous fight between my husband and her. Insisting that we change it but I just don’t like any other name as much.
I’ve decided to have a conversation abt it and looking on tips how to handle respectfully. Has anyone experienced a similar situation?
Moms, what is the standard etiquette and timing for your parents to come help out when you have a new born? I am due in April and we live in a small 2 bedroom apartment in NYC. Every one in the family wants to come to NYC and help when the baby is here and I’m grateful but I don’t want to get too overwhelmed trying to host people in this small space. I was thinking my parents could come for a couple weeks, leave and then my siblings can take turns? Thank you! Any advice will be appreciated
I am a Product Owner with 6 yoe and a mother of newly born. My current package is 12lpa and average 11-12 hrs working with work from office for 7-8 hrs, remaining calls/work from home. In such scenario taking care of the baby has become very challenging.
I have been considering job switch for a while but have lots of doubt in my mind. Will a new mother be hired? Working 12 hrs will only ensure good package? If i insist on work life balance, will it affect the package? Thoughts plz
Everyone thinks their firm is better than everyone else’s. Everyone who got fired or left a firm more than likely hates that old firm. Everyone who went Indy swears by sweet baby Jesus it’s the best
What’s slaloms maternity leave policy? How long do i need to come back to work before i can quit and not owe anything back to the firm for maternity leave?
Who do we reach out to at Deloitte to socialize going on maternity leave in a few months and when did you begin this process ?
Anyone have a child in Avenues NYC? Thoughts? Worried about English Literacy given they split time with second language immersion. My child is already fluent in Spanish so that is less of a gain.
Do you fly out to family for the holidays or do they come to you? We're hosting Christmas for the first time and having the entire family come to town for it. What are some can't miss holiday events in the city? Ideally accessible because my father is in a wheelchair.
I have an OL from LTI with a CTC-20 Lpa..As my mother had brain surgery, i need to be with her. i have asked HR to provide WFH. Does LTI support in these kinds of cases?? I have also asked HR to set up a call with the Project Manager.
Comments pls ..
I just got diagnosed with ADHD at 30. After years of being the weird one, problem child and dealing with my own mental and sensory overload issues I’m so relieved to have a diagnose I could cry. I am now getting recommendations to avoid medication and try therapy. Can anyone speak to that approach? I kind of feel like I’m getting that recommendation because people don’t believe ADHD is a real issue.
me: how can i help you today?
customer: can you get me a younger wife who talks less?

I recently accepted a job offer for $85,000.The offer letter stated, “your gross semi-monthly salary shall be $3,541.66 which is equivalent to $85,000.00 per annum”.I signed/accepted.Today I received my first pay check and noticed my gross semi-monthly salary was 3,269.23.
I expected 3,541.66 to be the gross as stated in my offer letter.After using a salary calculator I realized that a mistake was made on my offer letter. 3,541.66 is equivalent to 92,068.60/yr. What do I do? I want my $3,541.66

What happens when.... we're still doing distance learning in the fall... and the parents go back to work????
I need some unbiased perspective: four of us teach the same class and, as required, give common assessments. We discuss how many points assignments are worth, how much we curve each test, etc though we vary a bit here and there on all of these things. The problem is that one of us grades everything DRAMATICALLY easier. Their average on a 50 point assignment might be as much as 20 points higher than the other teachers. What do I tell parents who complain??
When teaching in school I lose track of time. What are some techniques that you use to stay on track?
Talk about being thrown under the bus
Is teaching your job, career, profession, mission, or calling? How has that descriptor changed for you over time and why? I personally think we need people in all these categories and there are things to be learned from each approach.
Are you all in NEA or AFT as your union? We’re in NEA where I am. Just curious which is better. I’m am only 23 so I am still learning the ropes.
How can I change my name on here? I typoed my names when signing up,and when I try to edit my info, it doesn’t let me edit my name.
Do I have to recreate my account?
He has his own teacher and 2 aides? Are they full time with him? I don’t understand how this would happen if he has 3 adults with him or assigned to him.
I am a LBS1 (Learning Behavior Specialist/SPED teacher) so I need a little more information to help.
From what I have read, the best advise is to keep track of outbursts or severe issues. Nothing really formal, just on a spreadsheet or Word doc or whatever. By doing so you are collecting solid data you can take to admin to show exactly what is happening. Admin and SPED folks love data. From there the team can decide where to place him.
This is also a safety concern for him, other students and staff.
I think an FBA evaluation would be valuable.
Different district and years ago, we had a kid prone to setting fires. Had a one on on full time aid assigned to him but every once in a while he would get away long enough to start a fire. It would always be found and extinguished pretty quickly
In that building and district, that was pretty much just one of many stories I could tell.
I feel like we need more alternative settings for these extreme cases. I also once tutored one on one with an 8th grade boy for almost a year before I found out he was a sexual predator of younger boys!! My own son goes to the same school!!
My first year of teaching, (25 years ago) I had a similar situation with a student who crawled on the floor and meowed like a cat, rubbing on things etc. We were supposed to “ignore” her 😂😂😂. I should have known then that it wouldn’t change.
Whoever is his case manager really needs to collaborate closely with his parents about his triggers and routines. The same routine needs to be followed at school every day until he is used to it, and with any changes he needs to be in a sensory room or stay home (drills, differing activity day schedule, etc.). They also need to be sure that he doesn’t need something like headphones to cancel out sensory overload.
It's always hard when a kid is destructive and it seems like everyone in in the building is prey and there isn't much you can do....no consequences for the student or parent. If the Principal charged the parent for all the destruction it would stop. PBIS has ruined our school....the worst kids get rewarded while the best kids go unnoticed. Our school system doesn't want any kind of Principal with a bite to them, hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil....
At my school this student would have a 1-on-1 with him at all times.
This student is 1 on 3. 1 teacher and 2 aides for one child.
We have ABA behavior specialists, Autism Specialists, psych support and additional support people who work with students who have extreme behaviors to help them be able to be in a classroom.
He should have a smaller place where his aides,TA and helpers can get the assignments from his teachers so that they can help. Of course, it will require coming up with a plan that would require constant communication with his other teachers, liaison and everyone included in his case as well.
Collaboration strongly plays an important role in this matter. I will send them an email about the steps you would like to take this year and Cc it to anyone who is in charge of the Special Ed. Department. What about bringing that up to a higher level? It doesn’t seem that you are winning.
Is your district using PBIS?
Yes! We have k-4, 5-6, 7-8 and 9-12 cross categorical centers for district students only.
We also house ACT 18 programs which include ASD and CI programs for every grade level, it houses students from surrounding districts. Our district houses cross cat center programs for LD, EI, Speech, OHI, etc kids.
For our local center programs we have to collect 8-12 weeks of data, then submit an application to our spec Ed Dept.
