There are several children in my classroom who keep having tech issues. How can I support them without taking away from instruction time?
I’m getting my first classroom as a special educator! What are some things that you love having in your classroom (favorite books, favorite activities, posters, decor, organization tools, anything!)?
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.
Me in my classroom last week...
Has anyone implemented a model where teachers observe other classrooms and coach each other?
We as teachers are not supposed to tell our students what to think, we are supposed to teach our students how to think. To do this, we need to try our best to keep our political opinions and our personal thoughts on issues out of the classroom.
Do you have classroom pets? Our science teachers hamsters keep having hamsters lol. This is like the 4th set!
Thinking back to when I was in school. What do teachers have to do now that they didn't 20-30 years ago? What do they need to provide now that they did not have to provide back then? I don't recall buying anything than pencils/paper/folders. We covered our used books with newspaper or paper bags Classrooms were simple, not every inch of wall space was covered in charts, etc. The districts/teachers supplied nothing extra. What changed that teachers have to spend their own $ now?
Any other teachers having to be in busy work classes these next two weeks rather than planning your lessons -Canvas-Google Classroom and everything else we need to do before students arrive?

I started the school year with a class of 12 self-contained students (FR and SF mixed class) math class. Slowly, but surely, my roster bubbled to 17. Since we are all virtual instruction, I said to myself, it's OK. Now, we learned we are going back to the classroom in March, and my room is very small, set for 12 students max? In addition, I only have one teacher's aid, who just told me that she is dyslexic and can't help me too much. I am getting nervous as the days go by! Any suggestions?
My students have been obsessed with using the magnifying glasses. We have explored with them inside and outside of the classroom. I was thinking about maybe creating a scavenger hunt....any ideas?
I am scared of returning to my empty classroom that sits in a covid hotspot. Its all I want to focus on but I can't...so many great things happened during the spring and summer and they never got celebrated. There's no time like the present! Let's drop the negative, mind numbing complaints (speaking to myself) and grow & glow through it

Also, does anyone know the anticipated benefits to be rolled out from SVB as the parent company? Specifically interested in health insurance providers. Thanks in advance for any information!

Has anyone given any thought to the possibility of keeping quarantined staff and students at school in a separate area and allow instruction to be monitored by said staff? I am not talking ones who are truly feeling ill but we have teachers who have had to ne home with allergy like symptoms...those teachers could monitor students who are also not feeling ill in an area a way from the nonquarantined student body...maybe other schools have students have students who work their hearts out not our

Name your firm and whether you now can WFH...
What happens if you don’t meet utilization targets in a year? I switched from audit to advisory and have been here 2 months and my billable hours are way less than I was expecting (avg 30 a week). I’ve had good feedback on my projects and ask for more work in my down time, but the change of pace from when I was in audit is stressing me out.
Has any of you been outsourced and underpaid a slave salary? How do you deal with the trauma of knowing that the work you have been doing for so long is actually worth so much more? I'm sorry to use this bowl for this kind of conversation but I'm having suicidal thoughts and sadly my only other option is also been outsourced.
What is your opinion on GARP financial Risk Manager (FRM) certificate? I am considering taking it (as I am FS Risk Consulting), but I am not sure if it really carries benefits. Apparently it is quite a tough study. Is it worth the time or should I invest my time elsewhere? Also do you have learning material you are willing to share :D?
How do you put a firm on a resume that you were only at for a few months (and you left because you hated it, werent fired)? I assume I have to put it on because excluding it in general would be a lie and people would find out. Right?
Have an offer from a startup in a high growth space; however, I would be taking a 14% pay cut for the role. The managers are nice, the team is small, and good promotion opportunities. Any advice here? Role is out of Austin.

I spent the last 3 months "growing up" & now I'm ready to go. 1st thing is for me to get my own place. I'd like to buy instead of rent because I don't want to pay someone else's mortgage. I'm thinking of selling my car & cash out some of my 401k to buy a house. My thought is to put down 3.5% for a FHA loan then make a big payment towards the principal to reduce long-term interest. Anything wrong with this thinking or anything else I should consider?
