“If you’re not sweating by first hour, you’re not teaching”, “Don’t let me walk in the room and see you a$$ sitting down”, “ You should leave everyday exhausted” just a few quotes from our new academic supervisor. I find these extremely offensive, but since this is a supervisor any advice on how to handle this situation?

Any ideas for a more fun or interesting way to revisit classroom rules and procedures when the new semester starts? I don't want to just stand up and lecture these high schoolers. I know they hate it!
Has anyone tried using a QR code for classroom sign out? Has it worked for you or just become a pain?
Best wishes to all teachers going back to their classrooms this month. You’ll do an amazing job. Don’t forget to take care of yourselves as well as your students!
We started state testing today with my kiddos taking their FSA Writing. It is the first time I have seen them in school as they are a digital class, and such an amazing experience to see them together as they talked amongst themselves before we went to the classroom to test. You can see how much they miss being together. ❤

Need some help deciding on a role. Exiting B4 after 2 years. Moving to either a senior internal audit role or an ICOFR special projects team. IA has less hours through the year but the ICOFR role has their hands in a lot of the business and would allow me to use some automation skills I’m trying to build. Offers are identical. Having a hard time deciding between about 5-10 more hours a week year round for that experience or if I should go IA for the WLB and fact that IA is at every business

Any thoughts on which would be best for future, quickest to get, hardest test?

Does anyone else feel like their burn-out cycle is shorter? It used to take me about 2 years of grind before I hit a burn-out phase where I needed to do some serious recuperating. It feels like I'm at 3 months now, or even less. I've already spoken to my wife about building quarterly mini-vacations into my schedule just to keep my energy up. And by burn-out, I mean you're at the point that every single ball you are juggling can drop and you get fired and almost see that as a blessing.

Been hell of a year so far. Sort of bittersweet. Lost my job a few months back. Laid off the first time. But my net worth is all time high. And not only that, this has been the fastest increase. 401k up 40% this year. Personal brokerage up 40%. And just refinanced at 2.5. Not sure whether to be sad or happy. Guess will go with happy for now.

I swear to god the maids at the Westin intentionally point that little handheld shower apparatus straight at you so when you turn on the shower...
Had my first recruiter call today. When they asked me about my comp expectations, I asked them to tell me their range first and they said that they couldn’t disclose it as it was confidential. However, if I told them my range, they could tell me if they could match it or not. Is this standard practice? I didn’t want to disclose my range first but they didn’t leave me with a choice. How do you navigate such a situation?
