Am I the only teacher who doesn’t have family or friends willing to help with their classroom? I’ve moved rooms every year for the last 5 years and I have a large family and lot of friends, but no one is ever willing to help. I told my mom today that it really hurts my feelings, as she declined my request to help as she simultaneously asked ME to help do something for my sister’s house. I explained I’m always there when people need me, but I feel let down when I’m in need. Anyone else?

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. ❤

Hi ladies, just in need of some encouragement or inspirational stories about pivoting to a new career. I’m at a large established brand name firm doing boring stuff& just got a strong offer (2x my last year TC+promoted title) to do real estate. Very surprised as the firm is relatively under the radar but intrigued to see many partners in RE there are women! Still, nervous about leaving a big recognizable place and about an absolutely different career path—would love to hear your thoughts!
