For those of you who attended a FT MBA program, what did you do when you were not in the classroom? Besides traveling, partying, studying/homework, interviewing, etc. Were you often attending events to network, getting lunch with faculty, enjoying a hobby, something else? Thanks! *Repost*
One of my Kinders refuses to go to the bathroom at school. I have a bathroom in my classroom and there is a bathroom at the playground. He will hold it until he wets his pants. I have tried everything that I know of to get him to use the bathroom. I’ve talked with my principal and the school counselors and have tried everything that they have come up with. Nothing is working. Mom and dad both say that this is the only place he does this at. He will go just fine outside of school. Suggestions?
Is anyone else teaching from a trailer this year? They are building a bigger school, so I hope to have a regular classroom next year.
Happy New Year! Although just a change of a digit on the calendar, the fact that we’ve rotated around the sun gives people inspiration for change. What new or altered mindset or actions will you be bringing into your classroom in 2021? 🤩
How many classrooms have you had in your career?
Any high school math teachers who have returned to the classroom, what schedule are you using with your students? How well is it going?
Now that a vaccine is here the reality of going back to the classroom is getting closer to become a reality. I am wondering about how we can help the students begin to practice self management skills now before going back to the classroom. What are some things we can practice virtually that will be used in the classroom?
Any suggestions for classroom management? I push in and pull out - when I push in to the classroom the kids are well behaved.. it’s when I pull them out is when they start to get all silly!
With the possibility of schools closing, does anyone have a recommendation for a classroom alternative? Either on-line, or a good home schooling program?
Any suggestions regarding the recording of lessons? What’s the most efficient way to record and upload to google classroom for my virtual learners?
What professional advancement options are there for a classroom educator like myself? Are advanced degrees necessary, and are there opportunities outside of becoming a school principal? I’ve been teaching a few years now and I don’t plan on leaving the classroom anytime soon, but I want to know what my options are for later on in my career. Thanks!
True or false: If you ran your classroom the way admin ran the school, you’d get endless complaints from students/parents.
I'm so preoccupied with the election that I can barely concentrate on work. Please post a victory, however small, that happened in your classroom recently...

As an interventionist, I work with many grade levels and students. Looking for the best way to document data and information along with how to share the information with classroom teachers & parents.
My school has decided to bring all students back and put them all in the classroom. I have 29 students with the potential of 32. I don’t feel comfortable with this. We are supposed to try to keep 6 ft between isles, but in the row of students they are desk to desk. So shoulder to shoulder 6ft or less. Face to face is about 2ft, and some are much closer....... does anyone else have this going on at their school?
Corp Strat at a Fortune 50 or MBB? I'm not at a MBB. I don't think i'd stay for partner at MBB the only benefit I could see is coming back to a F50 firm at a higher position and paygrade.
So I’ve gotten the AmEx Platinum offer for 150K bonus points (Gold for 75K). I have another corporate card so the annual fee is $550. Even without considering the statement credits, centurion lounge, etc… it’s worth it for the bonus alone right? Like 150K points > $550, and I get the perks as free benefit. I’d plan to downgrade in 1 year. Any thoughts?

Baby sitting friend’s 5 year old and today she has 99 fever. She is going to see a friend on Saturday and told me she will get a COVID test before that. In her words, ‘I am going to get tested because if I have COVID I can pass it to my friend and the friend will meet so many people and she can pass into them and then all those people will meet other people and spread to them and then COVID will spread everywhere.’ I don’t know where little lady learnt it from but this was impressive.
What are your best tips when letting an expecting parent know we will not be revising the parental leave policy for them (but we understand they think it’s not good enough)
Plan to go to B-school in 3 years (1 year out of UG now). Long term goal is entrepreneurship. Have offers at a MBB firm for a generalist consultant role and at FAANG for a strategy role. FAANG offer is slightly higher (though both are a 50+% bump on my current comp). Both would have me reset to entry level. Which one should I take?
Why is the expense report system so shit? If it takes the average consultant 1 hour/wk, if we're billed at $500/hour (SWAG), expense time costs a firm with 10K consultants ~$250M pa...

For int‘l 🐠 living in the U.S, was moving here worth it? Is it still worth staying? Looking to get some perspective in deciding whether it’s worth pursuing a green card and building a life here...
Hello, we recently built out a technology team at our company. They are a phenomenal team with great work flow, rapport and collaboration however, most are junior in their career which can make it difficult for our senior lead to step away. They all receive professional dev allowances so we would like to work toward identifying possible future leads and laying out a growth plan. Do any of you have best practices, tips or resources in doing this specifically for tech talent?
Can anyone opine on NY 529 plans? Have one kid and debating if it is beneficial. I like the tax benefits it provides but not sure if the advantages go away if I end up relocating outside US after 4-5 years, or if my kid decides to not study in US or NY in future. Any opinions would be really helpful.
