I took advantage of Verizon’s Black Friday deals and got myself the new iPhone yesterday. I’m AMAZED by all the neat things it can do. One of my favorites is that you can grab text from a picture and have it read aloud. This would be so helpful for my students with vision needs and those with reading disabilities. When do we think we’ll actually see this technology in the classroom? Can’t very well put “iPhone” on a students assistive tech section of their IEP 😂
Hello all, just joined. I use a lot of ed tech in my classroom and would love to connect and exchange ideas with others.
I am new to RR this year. I am excited about this new journey and created this group to hear advice and tips for classroom setup, organization, and time management. Thanks to all who comment!
Did anyone else starts out as an Instructional/Teaching Assistant/Paraprofessional before getting their own classroom? I was an IA last year & if I don’t get my own classroom this year I’ll be a Para
I have a student with autism. He is mostly behavioral and at a lower learning level so he has to be in a separate classroom. We try to let him play with the students at recess or join in class parties. He has a sibling that attends school as well. When we were waiting in car line a group of girls talked about how they feel so bad for the sibling because of my student. Thankfully, neither student or sibling heard. But how do I respond to that as an adult? Especially, if they do hear?
For the Wharton recommender question of “why will this candidate have success in the Wharton classroom?” is there anything specific my recommender should mention regarding the Wharton class experience? I’ve done some research and note Wharton is big on experiential learning, flexible curriculum etc but is there anything that makes the classroom experience distinct?
Dropping this in a few bowls, sorry if you see it twice. I'm transitioning from teaching 8th grade mathematics at a public school to teaching a 7/8 self-contained classroom at a charter school. Any advice for teaching mixed grade levels or multi subject is appreciated: scheduling, classroom setup, subject order, behavior management, etc. I'm struggling to find my rhythm with only 6 weeks before kids return. Thanks to everyone for your commitment and time, enjoy your summer!
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...
Have any of your schools discussed the idea of live streaming your classroom? How would you feel about that?
Hey teachers! Have any of you ever used the program Transmath? It is a math program for secondary students. I am a high school inclusion special education teacher, and this year I am teaching a math class for some of my students using this program. I would love to hear if any of you have used it before and what it looks like in your classroom! Thank you!
What projects are working for you on a cart? So far, weaving and fiber is going great for me. It leaves little mess in their classrooms and doesn’t require a ton of supplies on my cart. Supplies are also inexpensive.
Special Education teachers and General Education teachers should work as a team together to help students mainstreaming, to be successful in the classroom.
For those of you who have made or are making a school switch, what did you do with all of your classroom stuff over the summer?
Feeling like there’s not a specific group for us Econ teachers? Well, now there is! Please feel free to use this to discuss experiences in your classroom and/or share/ask questions for future ideas :)
Anyone else an elementary specialist who gets called to help behavior kids, remove them from their classrooms if being unsafe and supervise them in a “safe room” type of setting? If so, how much of your own teaching are you missing in a typical day and what kinds of support is your district offering you? Right now, I am dealing with behavior kids for 1-4 hours daily (I’m the reading specialist). Almost non-existent support from the district. Just curious what it looked like in other places.

Zscaler sales position vs EY? I’m a technical guy and I’ve been at EY 2 years and can’t stand that they AGAIN made the mistake to staff me on a non-tech compliance audit rather than a technical or strategy project. I hate it. Recruiter reach out for a technical sales position at zscaler.. would y’all consider? long term what would be the best? figured out I don’t wanna be in a compliance role. but I like leadership (e.g. would love to be a CISO in a manufacturing company-but not a tech co/bank)
ACN Strat: how common is it for people to be let go? Be it being on bench too long, performance, etc. Seems it’s a common thing at some firms

Tested positive for covid on Friday, not showing any symptoms and have to quarantine in my apt until Monday. Anyone have any good Netflix/TV Show/Movie/Book recommendations? Anything to pass the time!
Just got sent slides for a particular role at EY. Not impressed by the slides. Should I “pls fix” the recruiter? Or is that too much 😭
Is it possible to extend maternity leave for a week? I got mastitis, sliced the tip of my finger off in the kitchen and have a huge bandage wrap and now don’t have child care starting until next week.. I’m supposed to return to work tomorrow.. help 😭😭
Just saw the trailer for Santa Inc. Funny premise, will watch with an open mind. Still seemed closer to an attack on Christmas as a holiday than poking fun at Christmas specials. Seth Rogen and Sarah Silverman are Jewish. No issue there; they’re free to make the movie. But imagine if it were Mel Gibson and Hanukkah instead. If somehow greenlit, there would be outrage (rightfully so). I don’t take offense with Santa Inc., but I can’t help but notice a double standard.
What is the best way to book vacation (ideally bundles - flights, accommodation etc.) for Maldives?
I'm having trouble finding a contractor for web design/UI/UX. Our site is built on DIVI (a Wordpress theme with a front end visual builder). I am looking for someone to help revamp the design system for our website, design pages, and optimize layout for the best user experience. Where should I be looking for this kind of contractor? This is part-time but could turn into a full-time position if the fit is right. Any advice on where to look is much appreciated. (We're a fast growing tech company)
