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.

As a leader in cyber, one of my aspirations is to increase the diversity of any organization that I am a part of.
For example…When I was in Big4, I referred several diverse candidates who are thriving & now, at McKinsey & Company, I set a personal goal to refer 1 diverse candidate, especially in (but not necessarily exclusive to) cyber/tech/IT, for every month of my tenure.

Happy Easter to all who celebrate!
Many teachers in my county are resigning or retiring. We are being forced to go sit in empty classrooms when we’ve been working from home this entire year. Some have health concerns, others have children they aren’t comfortable bringing up to the building. Some have children that are also in online school, so ￼easier to be home with them while working. I know not everyone agrees with some of us choosing to leave, but our county is one of the worst for Covid. We also just had to cancel 10,000 vaccinations because the truck didn’t show up.
How is everyone spending their summer vacation? I worked last summer, but this summer I will be spending with my kids. Let's hear it!

I just joined Fishbowl recently because I know a lot of my teachers are struggling this year. So let me ask you.. do you feel that you can be honest with your principal about what you need and your struggles? How do I make my teachers feel safe about being honest and not fearing judgment? (I'm not out to "get them" or fire them).

So my last bowl was me dragging. Come to find out I had to go to an emergency room and find out the pain in my heart was a blood pressure of 180/115 and my blood sugar spiked. Doc asks me if I’m stressed. I told her I’m a teacher. No explanation needed. But I’ll be damned if I let a job affect me like this. I just can’t leave because of you know, quarantine, and good jobs just aren’t plentiful. $750 emergency room bill to find out I’m stressed and not dying from a heart attack.
Hello! I have written and directed a short film that powerfully encapsulates the topic of suicide awareness and prevention among youth.
